Utahraptor ostrommaysorum Skull
Utahraptor meaning 'Utah's predator' was a large dromaeosaur, an adult reached up to 6-7 metres in length and 2-2.5 metres high, weighing in at around 1,000 kg. It lived 121 to 136 MYA ago in the early Cretaceous, closely related to Achillobator and Deinonychus. Its bones were hollow and bird like, but very strong, latest discoveries suggest an animal that was very stocky in appearance with relatively short arms, legs and tail in comparison to other dromaeosaurs. The lower jaws in particular were unusual, bent down and outwards at the tips, possibly suggesting a specialized diet.
