Re: "Raptors", falconiforms, and popular culture
"raptor" in size (and probably integument; it probably didn't need
feathered covering thanks to its size) than Velociraptor.<<<
I much prefer Utahraptor---it's much closer to the archetypical
I'm sorry, this is not correct (well, except for the part about
Velociraptor being over-rated). Utahraptor is clearly at the large end
of the dromeaosaur size spectrum, and there is no reason to think that
Utahraptor would have lost its feathers due to its size, any more than
imagining that ostriches or emus would (or moa or elephant birds).
