So what are your favorite species of dromaeosaurs? The infamous Velociraptor? The giant Utahraptor? Personally, I am a Deinonychus fan myself. At 10-13 feet long and 175-250 pounds, it's right in between raptors like Pyroraptor and Utahraptor. This makes it just about the perfect size in my opinion. But what about all of you?[

It's hard for me to choose since I am a fan of ALL species of the vicious raptors. Though I have to say, with lots of consideration, that the Utah-raptor is my favorite raptor there is. Though I wish when they bring out JP4 that they can put in everyone's favorite raptors, for raptors should be the main character this time!

I like them all too but I think my favorite 2 would have to be the Utah Raptor and Megaraptor (if you ask me, I think they should put that dinosaur in jp IV as well, the ultimate raptor! you know) [img]http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20100415013448/dinosaurking/images/5/58/Megaraptor.jpg[/img] Megaraptor

You know, it's thought that Megaraptor was actually a member of the allosaur family. It's sickle shaped claw actually went on the hand instead of the foot. For one thing, it was found in S. America. No raptor has ever been found in the southern hemisphere, but the allosaurs were some of the dominant predators of the southern continents.

Still, either way, I'd love to see it in a JP movie sometime.

Oh I get ya. Megaraptor was still a fierce carnivore.

I like Utahraptor the most. The velociraptors in Jurassic Park where actually Utahraptor size and where never corrected because the first movie had already came out and people loved them.

I like Microraptor very much. Sure, it was not as impressive as other raptors, it was a very small dinosaur, weighing about 1 kg, and very bird-like, except that it had four wings and the famous sickle claws. Could you imagine a flock of those creatures flying around your head ? It surely will not appear in JP4, because the producers said there will not be any feathered dinosaur in it, and it's a shame, because it would have shown everyone that birds are indeed dinosaurs...
