One of the Hypsilophodontid dinosaurs, Othnielia was a herbivore with a slender body and skull. The plant eater probably had large cheek pouches to aid in consuming food. Othnielia's feet were tipped with sharp claws possibly used for defense and for traction. Like football shoe cleats, claws helped any dinosaur keep its footing on all types of terrain. This dramatic cast preserves all the bones and claws in the foot of Othnielia and includes a sturdy metal stand.
Specs: Othnielia rex. Late Jurassic (145 m.y.a.). Western USA.
