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. The specimen is known from only a few bones, but they are enough to give scientists a good idea of what this little dinosaur would have looked like. Some paleontologists believe it would have closely resembled the small, bird-like dinosaurs recently discovered in China.
Pyroraptor was found associated with fossils representing a number of other creatures, including the iguanodont Rhabdodon, a nodosaur, a titanosaur, a ceratopsian, the abelisaurid Tarascosaurus and some Late Cretaceous reptiles.
The origin of the dromaeosaurs has long been debated. A number of prominent scientists believe they originated in North America, possibly the area that was adjacent to Europe in the very Early Cretaceous.
Pyroraptor can be created in Jurassic World: The Game. Unlike most dromaeosaurids in the Jurassic Park Franchise, this depiction of Pyroraptor has fur like feathers all over its body and even wings, making it one of the few fully feathered dromaeosaurids in the franchise, along with Utahraptor.
Pyroraptor will be in Jurassic World: Alive. Unlike most dromaeosaurids in the Jurassic Park Franchise, this depiction of Pyroraptor has fur like feathers all over its body and even wings.
