Asian wounder

An Asian wounder mother and her chicks.

Asian wounders are a species of modern day non-avian theropod dinosaurs that are native to many parts of Asia, including China, Japan, North Korea, South Korea, India, Thailand, and among other countries of Asia. They are descended from a group of Saurornithoides that survived the K-T extinction event and remained mostly unchanged. These dinosaurs are omnivores, feeding on berries, leaves, insects, spiders, crustaceans, fish, frogs, smaller reptiles, birds, eggs, small mammals, deer, wild boars, carrion, etc, feeding on everything much like their Cretaceous ancestors. Depending on the subspecies of Asian wounders, they range in size from the size of a chicken to the size of an Eastern wounder. Their naural habitats includes temperate forests, boreal forests, scrublands, deserts, subtropical forests, tropical rainforests, jungles, swamps, boreal grasslands, temperate grasslands, and savannas, but can also flourish well in human settlements.
