Ornitholestes was a small predatory dinosaur, about two-meters long, only the size of a man. It was also closely related to the dinosaurs the one day evolved into birds.

BehaviorEdit

Ornitholestes lived in the forsets of the Jurassic and normally hunted small lizards, birds, and mammals, but a dinosaur hatcheling was an extra treat. And female Ornitholestes were over protective of their nest, scaring of even a two year old Allosaurus.
