Actually, those weren't even velocicaptors in the Jurassic park film.  That just happened to be the coolest name to use for these dromasaurs.  Real velociraptors were much smaller, like the "spitter" Dilophosaurus, which ironically, should have been much bigger than the Raptors!  And of course, now we know there were even bigger Utahraptors.

No, this picture is no exaggeration even if there are no conclusive evidence that the monster shark Megalodon is still alive. Carcharodon megalodon evolved during the early Miocene epoch, about twenty million years ago, and lived until about two or three million years ago. Scientists suspect that the monster sharks main prey were the large whales, which evolved at about the same time.

Back to Megalodon: According to the hundreds of Megalodon teeth that have been pulled from the oceans and rock beds of the world, the monstrous fish may have reached lengths close to 80 feet. Next to the sperm whale, that would make Megalodon possibly the largest predator that has ever lived, including the land dinosaurs.

the "velociraptors" looked a bit like deinonychus to me.  the dilophosaurs had the double crest on their head, but the fans at the sides?  no.

i don't think dinosaurs need to be "enhanced" for the movies.  they are cool enough as it is.

How can you tell...its impossible...unless you are going by size original.gif

Does anyone like any intresting dinosaurs, not those generic dinos like Triceratops, T-rex, Velociraptors....etc?

This isn't the MEG thread dude, but even if it could possibly grow to 80, that is about the same size as the latest Shonisaurus, COMPLETE in a canadian museum, and not just a handful of teeth.  It is a predator too, and probably weighed more  than any MEG, and possibly more than the longer blue whale.

Besides size frogfish, I believe true velociraptors have a longer, more pointed snout than some of the larger species, probably to reach into crevices to catch lizards, rodents and other small prey.

anyone who has looked at the skeletons of the deinonychus and the velociraptor will find it impossible to mistake the two.

it's sorta like looking at a cow that someone is calling a deer.

My favorite is the Utahraptor

Name: Utahraptor
Pronunciation: YOO-tah-RAP-tor
Meaning: Robber from Utah
Animal Type: Dinosaur (dromaeosaur)
Dietary Type: Carnivore
Size:Up to 6.5 metres long
        Up to 2 metres high
Weight: Up to almost a tonne
Major Fossil Finds: Eastern Utah    

Utahraptor is known from a well-preserved skeleton found in 1991 in Utah, USA and fragmentary remains from South America. It was the largest of a group of lightly-built carnivores, called the dromaeosaurs ('swift lizards'). Utahraptor had large eyes, long grasping hands and powerfully clawed feet. Clearly it was carnivorous, but was distinctive in relying on a wickedly hooked, slashing claw on each foot rather than the jaws and teeth of a typical predator.

Its toe joints were specially enlarged so that its massive claw could be raised upward and backward to avoid damage while running. But when used in attack, its claw flexed forward as the animal kicked out.

To help it balance on one foot while kicking, its tail was made to act like an acrobat's balancing pole, being stiffened by a sheath of fine bony rods. Swinging in a wide arc its huge 20 cm slashing claw would produce terrible wounds enabling a Utahraptor to cripple and kill animals much larger than itself. The discovery of a number of skeletons of the closely related dromaeosaur, Deinonychus, around the skeleton of a large plant eater suggests that dromaeosaurs may well have hunted in packs.

The dromaeosaur group also included Velociraptor, made famous by Steven Spielberg in "Jurassic Park". For the film, Velociraptor was made twice its actual size, which seemed to be very speculative at the time. However, within a year of the release of the film, a giant dromaeosaur had been found, namely Utahraptor. So life can be stranger than fiction!

You Might Be Canadian If...

-You know that the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) don't always look like that.
-You can eat more than one maple sugar candy without feeling nauseous.
-You think -10 C is mild weather.
-You know the ingredients for poutine.  
-You die a little inside if you can't get your Tim's double-double every morning.  
-You know the difference between real snow and "television" snow -- the white stuff that passes for snow on tv and in films. You scream, "For Christsake! That should be sticking to their pants!" and "Lookit, it's not melting! That's *so* not snow!" when watching 'Winter' scenes.
-You understand the phrase "Could you pass me a serviette, I just dropped my poutine, on the chesterfield."
