It really depressed me when I found out velociraptors were only the size of turkeys. My greatest dream/worst nightmare of running from packs of man-sized, super-intelligent reptilians were crushed, because if they were resurrected Jurassic Park style and escaped to wreak havoc on the unsuspecting world, you could just sort of kick them.

Deinonychus was just about man-sized though, so they are a suitable replacement I guess.

Velociraptor is such a cooler name though. For that reason I can understand using them instead of the more threateningly-sized Deinonychus in the Jurassic Park movie, but Crichton definitely should have known better writing the novel.

Which way I fly is Hell; myself am Hell;
And, in the lowest deep, a lower deep
Still threatening to devour me opens wide,
To which the Hell I suffer seems a Heaven.

BAHAHAHAHA
But really, I said the same thing when I found out. And then I told my brother and he punched me for shattering his dinosaur world.
Maybe I should put a spoiler warning in the OP or something?

Should have been followed by... YEEEEAAAHHHHHHH!!! haha.

But seriously, the theories of dinosaur morphology has changed quite a bit in the last decade. And if the mass extinction didn't happen, I'm sure they would become very intelligent.

Yes, Virginia, we did manage to come up with a self-righteous justification for our vast and entrenched cultural tradition of weaving an elaborate web of lies to our children until they reach adolescence.

If this thing can kill a person, I'm sure velociraptors could still do the job - especially if they're as intelligent as the movies made them out to be.


That being said, I find it interesting that Utah raptors just don't seem to be as interesting as velociraptors were. They're actually a bit too big - there's something about an animal being the same height as a human that gives them more character.

Dude, Komodo Dragons are less like tanks and more like walking biological warefare factories. Their saliva has enough bacteria in it to take down an animal twice its size in a couple of hours after a single bite.

It's also believed that some or all dinosaurs had feathers, making them look much less cool, and much more fluffy.

Also, cool dinosaur pics; where are you finding these?

My thoughts exactly.

You might out maneuver a T-Rex, but 20 or 30 little carnivorous turkeys will ruin your day.

Modern day turkeys are assholes. If they were so inclined to hunt humans in packs they could very easily kill one of us.
