Dino Drac’s Advent Calendar: 12/11/12.

A raptor. (!!!)

Just like the ones from Jurassic Park. But so much more orange.

Dino Drac is pleased, but he hesitates to really let loose.

“I’m just worried that this isn’t a real raptor. I don’t want to start screaming about raptors if people are going to tell us that it’s some other dinosaur.”

Oh, Dino Drac. Let’s squash those fears by pasting many words from Bob Strauss of About.com:

“Technically, paleontologists define raptors (or dromaeosaurs) as theropod dinosaurs that share certain obscure anatomical characteristics. For our purposes, though, raptors can be broadly described as small- to medium-sized, bipedal, carnivorous dinosaurs equipped with grasping, three-fingered hands, relatively big brains, and (most distinctively) huge, solitary claws on each of their hind feet, which they probably used to slash and occasionally disembowel their prey.”

I see NOTHING in that definition that doesn’t describe your new dinosaur.

Buddy, you got a raptor.

Too excited to speak, Dino Drac instead steals my notebook and crayons.

But I can dream, and in my dreams, I’m…freeing orange raptors with youuuu.
