Dinosquares! Because I didn’t have enough ongoing themed dinosaur series
From top to bottom: Spinosaurus, Dilophosaurus, Nothronychus, Torvosaurus.
Just a fun experiment to try out some super-stylised, iconographic-type dinosaur drawings! Many bones were surely broken in this process, but hey that’s not the point! It’s Squares babeyy!

66 million years ago, the end-Cretaceous mass extinction wiped out all dinosaurs except for the avian bird lineage.
…Or did it?
But I'm not talking about the dubious claims of non-avian dinosaur fossils found in places they shouldn't be. This is about something else entirely: an unassuming little bird known as Qinornis paleocenica.
Living in Northwest China during the mid-Paleocene, about 61 million years ago, Qinornis was roughly pigeon-sized at around 30cm long (12"). It's known only from a few bones from its legs and feet, but those bones are unusual enough to hint that it might have been something very special.
Uniquely for a Cenozoic bird, some of its foot bones weren't fully fused together. This sort of incomplete fusion is seen in both juvenile modern birds and in adults of non-avian ornithurine birds from the Cretaceous – and the Qinornis specimen seems to have come from an adult animal.
If it was fully grown with unfused feet, then that would suggest it was actually part of a "relic" lineage living 5 million years after the mass extinction, surviving for quite some time longer than previously thought.
The last known non-avian dinosaur.

New dinosaur: Berthasaura leopoldinae
There’s a new strange little dinosaur on the block!! Berthasaura is a Brazilian dinosaur species known from one skeleton so far, that represents a sub-adult individual that’s close to one metre in length, so while the adults were probably a bit bigger they would not have been that much larger! 
The naming of this species is rather lovely! Berthasaura is named for Bertha Maria Júlia Lutz, a Brazilian zoologist and women’s rights activist. The species name leopoldinae comes from both the first Brazilian Empress Maria Leopoldina in celebration of the upcoming Brazilian independence bicentenary next year, as well as from Imperatriz Leopoldinense, a samba school that wrote a theme for the National Museum of Brazil which tragically burned down last year.
Tumblr media
Berthasaura is a ceratosaur, a group of theropods that include cool stuff like Ceratosaurus and abelisaurids, and also just this one group of incredibly weird messed up tiny guys called noasaurids that this new one belongs to. There are no normal noasaurids, they are all bizarre in special and different ways.
Berthsaura has lost all its teeth and evolved a beak. There is another beaked noasaurid called Limusaurus, but these two are actually not really closely related, so toothlessness probably evolved twice in this one group.
It also had absolutely tiny hands, something that seems to happen again and again for some reason in ceratosauria. I also can’t get over how muppety its head looks, it’s so funny.
Tumblr media
Basically, this was a theropod doing its very best to become an ornithopod, which I think is just excellent and I love it. The figures I’ve used come from the original paper, which you can read here!

If you love theropod dinosaurs from south of the equator, you'll love this mask featuring Giganotosaurus, Carnotaurus, Irritator, Austroraptor and Herrerasaurus.

The “Prologue” for Jurassic World Dominion (that short IMAX preview from this summer) is finally out on Youtube, so I drew up a Dominion-ish Giganotosaurus to celebrate.
