Spore creature - Psittacosaurus (updated) PNG
A primitive ceratopsian (horned dinosaur), Psittacosaurus lived in East Asia during the Early Cretaceous, around 125 - 100 million years ago. Its remains have been found in Russia, Mongolia and China (for example in the Yixian Formation), and about 10 different species within the genus Psittacosaurus are currently recognized. Over 400 fossilized individuals of the genus have been found, making it one of the most scientifically well known dinosaurs.

Psittacosaurus varied in size from species to species, but measured around 2 metres long on average. Adult individuals were bipedal. Studies of the scleral rings in the eye sockets of this dinosaur indicate that it was active both at night and during the day at short intervals.

Psittacosaurus fed mainly on plants, specializing in tough vegetation with its powerful beak and self-sharpening teeth. Gastroliths (gizzard stones) were used to grind the plant matter.

Most of its skin was covered in irregular large scales with smaller scales in the spaces between them. However, a row of strange quills ran along the top of its tail. The function of these quills is unknown, though they are thought to have been for display.


After analyzing the melanosomes in the fossilized skin of an exceptionally well preserved specimen, scientists announced the discovery of the true colouration and patterning of Psittacosaurus in September of 2016. It was mostly dark in colour with a lighter underbelly, and very dark markings around its face, shoulders and cloaca. It is currently

Spore creature - Yi qi (updated) (male) PNG
Native to what is now China, Yi qi was a scansoriopterygid theropod dinosaur that lived during the Middle to Late Jurassic (around 160 million years ago). Its remains were found near Mutoudeng village in Qinlong County (in rock layers attributed to the Tiaoshan Formation), by local farmer Wang Jianrong, and sold to the Shandong Tianyu Museum of Nature in 2007. The monotypic genus was scientifically described and announced in the spring of 2015.

Measuring less than 50 cm long and weighing an estimated 380 grams, Yi qi was quite small. Its anatomy was bizarre. Each hand had a long bony rod extending from the base of the wrist, and like other scansoriopterygids the third finger was also very elongated. Skin impressions on the fossil suggest that the long fingers and the bony rod supported a large skin membrane, similar to the wing of a bat or a pterosaur.
To date, Yi qi is the only dinosaur known to have had this feature.

Whether or not it could actually fly using these "wings" remains a mystery however, as scientists are still not entirely sure how big the full membrane was. Feathers were also found in abundance on all or most of the body, although they were fairly primitive and "paintbrush-like".

Like other scansoriopterygids, Yi was a predator that specialized in insects and other small prey.


Update: The true colour scheme of Yi qi has been discovered. It appears this creature was mostly dark in colour, with a yellowish head.

Hi, everyone. :)

I'm a 25 year-old University student studying biology (though currently taking a leave from it to recover from depression). Big sci-fi nerd, and avid player of both Spore and Minecraft.

I'm also part of the team that's making the free, independant evolution sim game called Thrive. Check out the project at thrivegame.forum-free.ca/forum
We could always use some help. ;)

Oh, and I once co-wrote a Primeval/Jurassic Park novel crossover fanfic with two other authors: www.fanfiction.net/s/6365199/1…
