— The narrator introduces the dwarf Troodonts.
The dwarf troodonts are an unspecified genus of dwarf troodontid that appear on Hateg Island in "Pod's Travels", when they've been befriended by Pod, the Pyroraptor. Though they are referred to as "dwarf Troodons", they are actually based on undescribed troodontid bones from the island at the time.
Appearances[edit | edit source]
Similar to the normal Troodon from the episode Little Das' Hunt, these curious little creatures have relatively large brain size and they were probably among the smartest dinosaurs. Dwarf troodonts, nonetheless, are smaller feathered theropods. They have large orange eyes on narrow skulls with exposed upper teeth. They are mostly blue, although individuals may vary in shade. A lighter shade of brown and black exists on the snout, underbelly, and scales.
History[edit | edit source]
"Pod's Travels"[edit | edit source]
Dwarf troodonts are first seen when a pack of them attempt to scavenge a dwarf Rhabdodon carcass at the same time as a pack of Allodaposuchus. The crocodiles manage to scare off the small dinosaurs, only to be chased off themselves by Pod, who had already claimed the carcass and was resting nearby. After Pod leaves, the troodonts return to feed on the carcass. Later, when Pod is seen calling for his own kind, he manages to attract the same flock of troodonts. He manages to woo them with his size, and after killing a dwarf Tarascosaurus, he is allowed into their pack.
Errors[edit | edit source]
- Theropods such as the Dwarf Troodonts couldn't have pronated their hands without breaking them.
- The Troodonts should've had feathered wings and a tail fan
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Except for the color, the model for the creature is identical to the Troodon in the episode Little Das' Hunt.
