Indoraptor complete skeleton by Hyrotrioskjan Indoraptor complete skeleton by Hyrotrioskjan
Aaaaaaaaaand again a week without a spinosaur. I have in the moment a lack of DIN A3 paper (but I found today a last sheet =D)


Indoraptor is a primitive member of the Lophoraptoridea which origin lies in asia.
Even at his time, this animal was a living fossil, while he terrorized the pliocene plains of India, his cousins achieve south america and banish the last Diplopterna.



Unfortunately I haven't found good references of the monitor lizard hyoid. I have a special interest in this structure because it's important for breathing and some behaviors.

Does this mean I'm not the only one who's thought of a raptor based dragon?

The word "raptor" doesn't mean that the anatomy based on a dromaosaurid ;)

But yes, you are not the first, I have seen several Raptor+Dragon creations.

I guess raptors are a good basis, as opposed to a T. Rex or larger therapods

It's been an on and off theory for the past 100 years, There's not even a 100% certainty how accurate the theory is.

The "theory" is has been supported by most scientists since the "Dinosaur Renaissance" in the 1970's. There are a few groups who say they evolved from small, unknown tree-dwelling archosaurs that shared a common ancestry with dinosaurs themselves, but were not dinosaurs. But nobody's found any evidence of this. On the other hand, feathered dinosaurs have been discovered with features that birds also have. You could compare birds to frogs, who were also an initially specialised form of a group of animals who then went on to become a large, successful group. If frogs were the only living amphibians, then there would probably be an amount of debate over whether they were related to extinct salamander-like forms.

What is exactly an Indoraptor?

A momopternatic prehistoric dragon that stands near the origin of the successfull, south american family of Lophoraptorids.

would any of these dragons have feathers, like dinosaurs?
Reply
:iconhyrotrioskjan:
Hyrotrioskjan Featured By Owner Aug 20, 2012  Professional General Artist
No, feathers are very complex structures and only evolve in the tree of dinosaurs, the plausibility that varanids evolve them too is soooooo small that I can't say it in numbers.

scheint etwas von spinosauriern beeinflusst zu sein ;)
Find ich sehr schön. Gefällt mir immer wieder wie seriös und detailreich du deine drachen darstellst :)

ja ist es aber ich dachte weil du den cristatusaurus zuerst hochgeladen hast wäre das segel des indoraptors dem von cristatusaurus inspiriert :)
Trotzdem sehr schön :)

The fused spinal colums above the wing bones.

Ah =D ok, that's a Notarium, a bone that can also be found at pterosaurs and birds [link] . A few modern dragons have even bigger ones.

Maybe a few skulls, but now it's more important to me to begin with the sculpture ;)
The "spinal cord" cord is already done.

Completely understandable- you're already done the spinal column? That's great! Can't wait to see the finished product. Seeing the skulls will be great. Don't worry, the essays will be up soon- it's just been busy lately.

Could it fly? Due to the large tail it looks like it would be quite difficult. Otherwise very impressive.

:iconhyrotrioskjan:

Yes it can fly, the tail looks massive but all bones are hollow and airsacks range nerly to the tail-end.

Ah, I see. Still, it looks like it could easily throw the creature off balance in mid-flight
