“Raptor” is a common name, which describes representatives of dromaeosaurid (Dromaeosauridae) – family of theropod dinosaurs belonging to the maniraptora group. The term was popularized by the “Jurassic Park” movie by Steven Spielberg. Dromaeosauridae name means “running lizard” – from the Greek words dromeus / δρομευς ( “runner”) and sauros / σαυρος ( “lizard”).
Dromaeosauridae were small, agile predators that have developed during the Jurassic, the biggest boom reliving at the Cretaceous.
Their sizes ranged from 0.5 to 7 meters. Dromaeosaurid characteristic detail was a curved claw mounted on a curved back, the second finger of each of the hind limbs. Claw was a blade-like slashing weapon, much like the canines of some saber-toothed cats, used with powerful kicks to cut into prey.
Agility, speed, raw power, ferocity – features that are very well reflecting the nature of our machine.
