This is Emily Willoughby's tumblr. I am an illustrator and huge featherbrain, and my blog is for science, illustration, dinosaurs, feathers, fossils, and occasionally a little bit of silliness.
Utahraptor stands in the shallows of the great early Cretaceous inland sea, looking out to the horizon as the sun rises. Utahraptor, though one of the largest dromaeosaurs, was certainly not always taking down large prey in a dramatic and bloody fashion. On this morning, these dromaeosaurs were not hungry enough to hunt, so they combed the beach for shellfish and protein minutiae washed in by the tide. A small flock of ornithocheiroid pterosaurs pass by above.
Considered making this my ‘All Yesterdays’ entry (a Utahraptor not being a big badass and ripping apart everything in sight? Unheard of) but ultimately decided to do something more original for that.
