Allosaurus fragilis by TheMorlock Allosaurus fragilis by TheMorlock
The Common Allosaur is a famous carnosaur from late Jurassic North America. It is an ambush predator, and preys mainly on ornithopods like Camptosaurus, but will occasionally take sauropods. Carnosaurs do not hunt in organized packs, but will sometimes teem up on large prey in a similar way to Komodo Dragons (Varanus komodoensis).
-------------------------------------------------

Nothing really new here, just another version of our friend Big Al. This is my new "official" Allosaurus fragilis... or at least it is until a new discovery renders it outdated. Occupational hazard. Colouration still more or less based on the lion, but I put some ostrich in there too.

Thanks to :iconsmnt2000: for the suggestions.

I'm still to chicken to give my large theropods lips.

Based on a skeletal restoration by the great Scott Hartman (well, obviously, because it's just a tweaked version of this [link] ).

It's lovely and all, but I think you are spreading the bracket for a fuzzy covering a bit too much...

The feathering was based on Sciurimimus, but then Sciurimimus turned out to be a ceolursaur, so it's abit outdated.

You don't seem to have any deviations.
