The "Super-raptor" was a dinosaur of unknown identity or possibly a fictional dinosaur that was considered for The Lost World: Jurassic Park, but Steven Spielberg discarded it because he felt that it was "a little too much out of a horror movie" and that he "didn't want to create an alien."[1]

As stated before, it is unknown if this "Super-raptor" was a nickname for an already existing dinosaur species or if it was fictional. One might assume that it was the similarly named Megaraptor, which was originally thought to have been a large dromaeosaur, but Megaraptor was scientifically described in 1998, a year after The Lost World was released.
