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.

(So, along with being a fanfiction of  The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time , this story is an attempt at a [character] x reader thing, with Duana representing the reader. It'll be Sheik x reader, but... well, you'll see how it works in the story. There'll be plenty of action and people-hitting to go 'round during it, and the buildup to the ship will be gradual. I promise that things that happen in parts 1-3 aren't necessarily terrible attempts at showing affection. I'm not sure how long it'll go, but it'll have at least ten parts of varying length. At the moment, I have four parts done, but I'll not be posting twice in a day. Feel free to voice any ideas or opinions through comments/PM! If you don't like it, I'd appreciate  constructive criticism , not a rant. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the story!) Part One A Man and a Lyre [Image courtesy of some random person on the Internet. Taken from Google Images.] Duana’s eyes snapped open. A forest. But her last memory was… of being cut into by a Thief's scimitar and falling… in the desert . Was this death? She grunted; attempted getting up. Failed. The nausea finally registered, and the trees spun about her vision. But she couldn’t go unconscious. The king’s forces could be anywhere. Duana would be easy pickings if she was unconscious and they happened to stumble upon her. A second attempt at rising succeeded, and she tightly gripped a tree, sagging against it as the spinning intensified, and she nearly vomited. Slowly, it faded, and she became alert again. She stood upright, looking around; scanning for signs of movement. Her sharp, red eyes at first saw nothing, then noticed a slight trembling of some undergrowth. Duana tensed, but knew she wouldn’t put up much of a fight--regardless of whether she actually fought or decided to run. Promptly, the swaying increased, and then the bushes parted… and a figure came into sight, heading straight towards Duana… ...with the red eye and tear on the navy blue tunic he wore. His eyes were also red, and his ears were pointed. The symbol was the symbol of Duana’s own race; a people trained in shadow and dedicated to protecting the royal family as well as their country, but who had failed miserably in it. Duana gasped in relief, releasing the tension. “I was so paranoid that you were someone working for Ganondorf….” The young man, a fellow Sheikah, tilted his head and frowned. “Ganondorf? He was exiled two decades ago.” “Wha…?” “Nabooru, Sage of Spirit, is now temporarily serving as the Gerudo queen until the next male is born. How do you not know this?” “I….” He peered at her. “What tribe are you from?” “Kakariko.” For a few seconds, he remained staring silently, his face unreadable. “What is your name? And who is your father?” “Duana. My father is Alechjo.” “Alechjo… he doesn’t have a daughter named Duana.” “What… what tribe are you from, then? What is your name?” He paused, drawing himself from thought. “Sheik, son of Geron, of Kakariko. You seem discombobulated. Are you alright?” Duana smiled. Her lips parted to say something, but another wave of nausea slammed into her. It felt like a punch, and she lurched, but the tree kept her upright. “I’m sure you’re not alright,” Sheik firmly said. As he dug through a pouch on his belt, Duana then noticed the lyre peeking around him, held in place on his back by a leather strap running across his chest in a diagonal line. Some of his blond hair escaped a ponytail a few inches long, hanging around his face as it was bent to see inside the pouch.
