Dromaeosaurus has been described as 'the original raptor'. It was first discovered in the dinosaur‑rich Judith River deposits of
Although a lightweight, Dromaeosaurus was quite well built, with long arms and fingers that ended in vicious, curved claws. The hind limbs were also quite long, with a well‑developed, dagger‑like claw on the second toe of each foot. It is unlikely that this little dinosaur would attack animals much larger than itself, but if it hunted in packs then the results would be quite devastating. The dromaeosaurs were noted for their long, stiff tails. Together with good sight and a relatively high intelligence, they were effectively the wild dogs or wolves of the Age of Dinosaurs.
