Week Off, Week On

We are back. After much traveling a week off seemed best as I had already missed much of the week. There should be a good dinosaur for this week back. An interesting dinosaur. A small dinosaur! Not quite a bird, but almost a bird, we shall discuss a dromaeosaur. Considering it is a small dromaeosaur, the name Microraptor is a very accurate description of the dinosaur. We have discussed small dromaeosaurs before, but this takes the lack of height to a whole new level. In fact, Microraptor gui is small enough that it could easily perch on a human arm, much like an extant bird of prey that is trained to do so. I kind of want one for that purpose alone. Look at how adorable yet fearsome it is.
