Juravenator BW

Juravenator is a genus of small (70 cm long) coelurasaur dinosaur, which lived in the area which would someday become the Jura mountains of Germany, about 151 or 152 million years ago. It is known from a single, juvenile specimen. The fossil, found in 1998 by amateur paleontologist Klaus-Dieter Weiß in a lime pit near Eischat, had been nicknamed Borsti in German, a name commonly given to bristle-haired dogs, on the assumption the creature was endowed with bristly protofeathers.
