Why it's obviously a... nah, I'm not gonna cheat. But I would expect the beak to be longer.
Man... I don't know. You've got me stumped. I bet it's going to be really obvious too.
@Mickey Beak? What beak? This guy is fully toothy. Anyway this is doubly tricky as the feathering on the face did make the snout look a bit small and short.@Tomozaurus Not obvious at all really... At least I hope not! ;)
does it have a long tail and wing claws
is it Yanornis
Perhaps true regarding the role of feathers to disguise a short snout, but the specimen does have toothless areas in its jaws. Specifying further could make the guessing too easy though...
I agree with Anonymous sayin' it's a Yanornis, with colours (I guess) similar to that of a Mauritius blue pigeon (head) and a great cuckoo-dove (body)...Maybe I'm just crazy...Smnt2000
It's either Jeholornis or that tiny British maniraptor...
@ Mickey "but the specimen does have toothless areas in its jaws." Aha, you're right. Overlooked that, will have to correct this for future versions...Some people here are half-right. Post forthcoming!
