Iron Studios Mini Co Velociraptor Jurassic Park Miniature Collection Figure
One of the most disturbing images of the 1993 movie, Jurassic Park, is when John Hammond's grandchildren are hiding in the Visitor Center's kitchen and see a Velociraptor claw lying on the floor beside the table where they took refuge. He still sends shivers down his spine thinking of the first time anyone considered being hunted by such an intelligent creature. For a dinosaur that paleontologists knew little about at the time, Steven Spielberg and Stan Winston Studios did a fantastic job of creating a nightmare monster for many years after watching the movie. In the Jurassic Park universe, the term Velociraptor is applied to another type of dinosaur known as Deinonychus. Movies, like books, follow the unusual taxonomy created by Gregory S. Paul, who believed that Deinonychus, as well as some other species of dromaeosaurids, could be classified under the genus "Velociraptor". This is why the Velociraptor in the Jurassic Park movies are so big.
