Ornitholestes hermanni was a small 6-foot coelurosaur dinosaur which lived in the western United States during the late Jurassic Period – yet another dinosaur from the famous Morrison Formation.

As a coelurosaurid, Ornitholestes was a bird-like dinosaur, a distant cousin of Tyrannosaurus. Therefore, it might have been covered in feathers. However for this drawing, I decided to show it in the traditional non-feathered appearance.
