The Purple Bambiraptor, just like the more common red and brown bambi, is a Tier 3 Air dino which prefers the Cloud biome.
Launch: Wednesday July 10th, 2013 in EST.
With its purple feathered headdress, it looks all set to join a Mardi Gras parade in New Orleans. This dino loves to party! Rumour has it that the Purple coloration is a genetic mutation caused by the affinity of purple bambis for the lush purple berries that grow throughout their natural habitat. Do not eat any of these berries - if you see them.
FIeld Guide: Baby purple bambis always have one lone feather on their tales and head. Toddlers have exactly two feathers on their tales and crown. Teens have three feathers in each location, and begin to show the first adult coloration. Adult bambis have a complete set of purple, golden brown, teal and beige feathers on both their tails and crown and a chest covered with ivory ruffles. However only adults have the teal green feathers which begin to show when the adults enter the breeding season and are ready to lay their distinctive teal green eggs.

Below, we see a stunning Dino-Diorama featuring a Purple Bambiraptor family with their natural Sky Island habitat showing in the background. Looks like the toddlers are having a little trouble busting out of their eggs. Dino eggs can be really really tough! Almost indestructable.
All these dino-dioramas will eventually be housed in the Museum of Dinosaurs, Beasts and Chimera once the renovations there are complete.
