A phylogeny of maniraptors - a gift for albertonykus for being awesome :D
Whipped up from recent avian phylogenies & Dr. Holtz’ Theropod cladograms. Green = extant lineages, brown = extinct. Yeah, the non-avian maniraptors are a little sparse, I apologize for that, but one of my main goals was to create a ‘consensus’ of multiple trees. The birds relationships are slowly stabilizing, but we have a long way to go.
Any inaccuracies or changes, please let me know.

The unofficial sequel to killdeercheer's “Tumblr Buddies”, tentatively titled “20 Minutes Later”. Here, raptorcivilization's Eye of Sauron tries to helpfully point out a palaeofail but scares off palaeofail's Charles Darwin instead, with avisuchian and biologizeable laughing themselves to pieces at the spectacle. albertonykus tries to get slowlythenbadass Hiccup’s attention by doing some finger-nipping and the chirp chirp chirrup chreek thing from raptormaniacs, and lythronax-argestes-the-gore-king's, well, Lythronax and killdeercheer's Aurora (sorry, I'm terrible at drawing female characters) have a little Let it Go singalong.
Enjoy!
And, yes, stupid reptile was intentional.

I find it funny that I’m paired with the only blogger up there I don’t remember interacting with in reality. Small wonder if they consider me a stupid reptile! XD

Inspired by a post by lythronax-argestes-the-gore-king - here’s a picture of all his mentioned (and two other) tumblr blog-icons hanging out together at some bar/diner.
Along with Lythronax & I, there’s slowlythenbadass, biologizeable, avisuchian, raptorcivilization, palaeofail, & albertonykus.
Hope you enjoy guys! And if any of you wish to color this in, go for it! Just credit me… duh.
