SINOCALLIOPTERYX GIGAS by vasix SINOCALLIOPTERYX GIGAS by vasix
Giant is a relative term when talking compsognathidae. So, here we have 8-foot long Yixian Formation (Jiangshan Bed or something as far as I remember, but upper Yixian anyways!) Sinocalliopteryx.
The largest of all compys.....
This compy was a tough predator, even having raptor parts being found it its stomach in one find. This one is stalking two small pterosaurs.

I like how you put a fuzzy cover in this dinosaur. The question with the compsognathids is not that their size wold be relative, but the group coul be paraphyletic.

Sinocalliopteryx does show evidence of fuzzy feathers, more basal than raptor or bird feathers, yes.....well, about their classification and them being paraphyletic, well, that's a technical issue. The size thingie is just a casual laymanly observation! :)

Very beautiful ... I think the monochrome makes a good idea of ​​dense vegetation such as rainforest
