National Geographic News:  Bizarre Dinosaurs
<< Previous   4 of 4    
Utahraptor (meaning "Robber from Utah") fossils have been found in the Cedar Mountain Formation of central Utah. The 16- to 23-foot (5 to 7 meters) bird-like predator may have hunted in packs. Standing as tall as a human adult it weighed about one ton (1,000 kilograms) and may have been able to run quickly. It had long claws on its fingers and toes. Because its brain was relatively large for its body size, scientists believe it was among the most intelligent dinosaurs.

Born in Cuba and educated in Spain, Luis Rey's dinosaur art has been featured in numerous exhibitions and books. He bases his work on rigorous anatomical studies. Check out Rey's Web site to see more of his work. Find out more about his books A Field Guide to Dinosaurs, published in the U.S. by Barron's Educational Series, and available from all bookstores, or direct from the publisher.
