I have to admit that "Raptororex" would tend to get slurred together
and/or irritate peoples' tongues anyway, so I may not blame them for
that . . .
If this thing had been found by, and subsequently named for, someone
with the surname "Hood," the punnage would be pretty intense.
After all, the translation of the generic name can be read as "King of Thieves."
