Dromaeosaurid "Raptor" - Shoplivepages::jquery();?>
Dromaeosauridae were a family of theropod dinosaurs, small to medium-sized feathered carnivores that thrived in the Cretaceous Period. Dromaeosauridae derives from the Greek for 'running lizards', dromeus meaning 'runner' and sauros meaning 'lizard', informally they are often called raptors. Dromaeosaurid fossils have been discovered worldwide, Europe, Africa, Asia, South America and Antarctica, fossilised teeth giving some credibility to the possibility that they also inhabited Australia. Our fossils were sourced from the Judith River Formation, Hill County, Montana, North America where two types of Dromaeosaur have been found, Dromaeosaurus albertensis and Saurornitholestes langstoni.
