Tianyulong confuciusi dinosaurs, artwork. The fossils of this ornithischian dinosaur were found in the Tiaojishan Formation in Jianchang County, Western Liaoning Province, China. Described in 2009, they date from around 160 million years ago during the late Jurassic. This dinosaur was around 2 metres long. Ornithischian dinosaurs in general were beaked and herbivorous. This one had primitive filamentary structures on its back. It is thought that these are analogous to primitive forms of feathers, but may have evolved independently.
