Ceratonykus

Ceratonykus is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period and lived in what is now Mongolia. It is only known from a single fragmented skeleton. Once suggested as an avian dinosaur, this classification is now debated. Studies of the skull show that the brain was not avian in nature, and that there were bony projecting spurs on the wrist.
