Dakotaraptor
Dakotaraptor

Dakotaraptor is a genus of large carnivorous dromaeosaurid theropod from the Late Cretaceous of North America. The first fossils of Dakotaraptor were found in South Dakota, United States, in 2005. In 2015, the genus Dakotaraptor received its name, meaning "plunderer of Dakota", when the type species Dakotaraptor steini was described.

Deinonychus
Deinonychus

Deinonychus antirrhopus is one of the best-known dromaeosaurid species, and is a close relative of the smaller Velociraptor, which is found in younger, Late Cretaceous-age rock formations in Central Asia. The clade they form is called Velociraptorinae.

Microraptor
Microraptor

At two or three pounds soaking wet, Microraptor has lowered the size bar considerably, even if some people still aren't willing to classify this creature as a true dinosaur (using the same reasoning by which they consider Archaeopteryx to be the first bird, rather than what it really is, a birdlike dinosaur).

Pyroraptor is the first positively identified member of the raptor family found in Europe. This was a small, fast hunter that lived near the end of the age of dinosaurs.

Utahraptor
Utahraptor

Utahraptor's claim to fame is that it was by far the biggest raptor ever to walk the earth; adults measured about 25 feet from head to tail and weighed in the neighborhood of 1,000 to 2,000 pounds, compared to 200 pounds for a more typical raptor, the much later Deinonychus, not to mention the 25- or 30-pound Velociraptor.
