Utahraptor - One Mean Looking Dinosaur!

Utahraptor - Jurassic Beings

In the movie Jurassic Park large raptors ran around preying on people, animals and whatever else they could get their sharp teeth on. In the movie they were called Velociraptors but they were really way bigger than real Velociraptors. The raptors in the movie looked a lot more like Utahraptors.

Utahraptors - Dangerous Dinos

Like Velociraptor, Utahraptor had scary looking claws on its toes. It was a mean looking dino about 20 feet tall (6.5 meters) that walked on two feet. Its long tail was used for balance and helped it make quick turns - no dodging this dino. Utahraptor had a flexible neck, a big head and large, sharp eyes. Its powerful jaws were lined with sharp, jagged teeth. Each of its three fingers on each arm had a large, sharp curved claw. These deadly things would have shred through almost any dinosaur. If that wasn't scary enough the second toe had a nine to 15 inch (25-35 cm) claw. That's longer than the inside of your elbow to your wrist. Utahraptor's other toes had smaller claws.

What's For Dinner at Utahraptors?

Utahraptor was a carnivore so he dined on meat. Most likely it just ate anything it could shred and tear apart. No dinosaur was safe from this predator. When it hunted in packs, Utahraptor could probably have killed any prey it wanted to. It wouldn't have done any good to try to outrun it. Utahraptors were speedy, although Velociraptors were faster.

Utahraptor Fossils

The first fossils from an Utahraptor were discovered in Moab, Utah (which is where it gets its name) in 1991. The paleontologist who found it thought he had come across an Ankylosaurus rib. After digging some more the group he was with found it was actually a claw - a huge claw. Two years later Jim Kirland had found enough bones to put together the first Utahraptor skeleton.

Never learned about LGBTQIA, so I doubt a 6 year old would know about it.  Well part of life is informing yourself about what school does not teach you, so first of all do some research. In this day in age doing research is not that hard then it was 35 years ago.  Since you also spoke about going to a Christian school the school will have its own bias towards the subject. Some Christian's are aposed to the subject to being gay because the Bible does not specify about what gay people are since this was a question brought up to most people around the 1970's. Other people have caught on with the idea and have supported it. You just have to find where you fit in, you can't always blame facts because you have neglected to do research to understand and find a side that resonates with you and argue it.
