Since the skull was so badly crushed, I thought a Bambiraptor-like head
might be a good change of pace. Not for any reason, mind you, except
that the Bambiraptor skeletal mount looked a bit like the Cryptovolans
body as I had reconstructed it.

As an aside, I notice that the 95cm length estimate for Cryptovolans
seems to include about 20cm of tail feather. The skeleton itself is
closer to 75cm in length by my reckoning.
