Dimensions

Even though the feathers of Caudipteryx look very much like those of today’s birds, this little dinosaur definitely could not fly. 

It is thought to be an earlier, more primitive relative of dinosaurs like Oviraptor. 

The long feathers on the arms and tail of Caudipteryx were probably brightly colored, perhaps for "showing off" to other members of its species. 

Indeed, beautifully preserved specimens of this dinosaur show that its tail feathers were striped in light and dark bands! 

Most skeletons of Caudipteryx have been found with gastroliths ("stomach stones") inside their ribcages, which may have been used to grind up plants in the gut of this dinosaur. 

The long legs of Caudipteryx suggest that it was a fast runner.
