"Like Tyrannosaurus rex, Velociraptor had a prominent role in the "Jurassic Park" movies -- but scientists do not believe it resembled anything close to its Hollywood depiction in terms of size or appearance. In fact, the movies' Velociraptor was actually modeled after Deinonychus, and sported a similar size and snout."
- Velociraptor: Facts About the 'Speedy Thief' by Joseph Castro, Live Science, March 18, 2016
Deinonychus was highly specialized for swift movement and savage attack. With its terrible claw flicked forward it slashed its prey with one foot while standing on the other. This kind of behavior required good coordination, excellent eyesight and a high level of energy.
As portrayed the Jurrassic Park films, members of the Dromaeosauridae Dromaeosauridae, the family to which Velociraptor and Deinonychus belong, are very fast runners — although their actual speed may have been exagerrated for the films — and GRODO is the fastest runner in all of The Headlands.
