Chirostenotes was about as large as a grown human but it weighed much less than the average man. That's in part because of it's slender, sleek build. But don't be fooled by Chirostenotes narrow form; this lightweight dinosaur could move very quickly and strike at prey before they knew of danger.
Proportioned about like a raptor, Chirostenotes had uniquely narrow, and long bones and claws. A member of the theropods (a suborder composed of all meat eating dinosaurs), this agile hunter is also classified with the subgroup tetanurae, of which Allosaurus and Tyrannosaurus are distinguished members.
One of our favorite items, this fossil cast preserves the excellent detail of the bones and sharp claws of the original specimen. You can't afford not to own this visually stunning dinosaur reproduction.
