How Raptors Lost Their Primaries

By EWilloughby
P. phagia is a terrible thing, and these poor afflicted deinonychosaurs need support and encouragement rather than ridicule.

In increasingly rare instances, P. phagia has been known to mutate to several different genera and species, all of which cause horrible physical deficiencies for the affected animals. Known variations of this terrible, terrible parasite include:

Primaropteryx wristattachia: this variation somehow detaches the primaries from the phalange, leaving them dangling from the wrist.
Remigopteryx phagia: this variation is known to totally consume the arm feathers of a deinonychosaur.
Pronatowrist breakius: This especially dangerous parasite actually deforms the arms by bending the wrists into unnatural positions. Is very painful for the animal.
Jurassopark completefuckupius: Too terrible to describe here.

That little bugger!

What about the worms that make ornischtians loose all of their plumage except some on their back? Or the one that devours the skin on their cheeks, leaving nothing but the exposed flesh?

Ah yes, the dreaded Ornithischian cheek louse--nasty bugger.

Someone needs to tell me what happened for this to be created www.gurumed.org/wp-content/upl…

...That's not what I meant

Julius csotonyi painted an otherwise stunning utahraptor but he
Deliberately made it primary-less because he thought the primary's would interfere with the hand's grasping function. 'Inhales... Exhales' where's the evidence?

Well he's amazing at art, but not the best at reconstructing dinosaurs

glued on hands really make them look fake.

Oh I get it...
I think its too late to fix the Jurassic Park franchise's design for dinosaurs though, its been around too long to change in movies maybe, they explain that the animals were messed up by the cloning process though...

Jurassic world claimed that to stop the frog DNA sex-changing powers, henry wu added DNA from green iguanas, geckos and an african black-throated monitor lizard to each of his dromeosaurids. I'm being dead serious. Why not use secretary bird, or crested serima bird DNA to them? I'd have avoided using flying bird DNA. Because a hawk brain in a flightless body would suffer.

Because they wanted it to look scary and based it off old dinosaur looks and ideas as lizards, it would be cool for the next movie to have accurate dinosaurs but I think its best to accept that this is the established look for the dinosaurs of JP/JW, I guess they had doubts about the feathered chicken Velociraptors so they made em bigger and stuff.

Well in JW, Delta ( Blue's second in command ) has avian DNA, resulting in her more bird-like movements

Cool detail... i must double back and take a look
IndoraptorOrionfan19's avatar
Bloody hell, I forgot to mention that they used cranes and other birds for the vocalisations of the raptors, which makes sense, since they're the most closely related to birds
TheWatcherofWorlds's avatar
See they do care for detail.
IndoraptorOrionfan19's avatar
Plus, there's one thing that is accurate with the raptors in JP and JW: the lips, they don't have exposed teeth. just like in real life

It's a joke about how some people draw the arms deformed.

I guess humor is subjective
