The Utahraptor(You-tah-rap-tor) is a medium sized theropod dinosaur from the group of very bird-like dinosaurs called dromeosaurids. It lived during the Early Cretaceous Period about 126 MYA in the Cedar Mountain Formation in what is now Utah. The name Utahraptor means "Utah's thief".
In real life, the Utahraptor was one of the biggest dromaeosaurids discovered so far with its size rival being the Dakotaraptor. Utahraptor probably behaved just like modern birds of prey, but bigger and flightless, they would use their famous killer talons to hold onto and slit the throats of prey such as Gastonia, Iguanodon, and Eolambia. Utahraptor was 16-23 feet long and 5.6 feet tall weighing in at 2,200 lbs. It possessed a body entirely covered with bird-like feathers which made the animal more streamline and made it easier to regulate body temperature and pennaceous feathers on its arms and tail used for steering, mating displays or shading young in nests.
In game, it is relatively small with a light brown colored body and dark brown, black claws and medium-sized arms with white and brown feathers. Its mouth is peach colored with tiny nostrils. Its eyes are small and yellow.
Utahraptor has a GRM (Growth Rate Multiplier) of 0.4, meaning that it will elder in 28 minutes, or 8 in-game days.
Gameplay and Strategy
The Utahraptor is a small predator, meaning you can't target bigger creatures without a pack. It is recommended to for a pack due to the vast range of prey you can hunt. But if you don't have a pack, the best thing to do is avoid bigger creatures and target babies and juveniles. You can also scavenge from bigger predators. When you're in a pack, however, you and your teammates can swarm down bigger herbivores and have too much food to eat. If you need water, go at small ponds relatively far from the ocean, since the chance of having a crocodile or a sea creature is lower than in the ocean.

DNA Raptor was a skin added during the Black Friday 2016 sale. It shows the iconic shopping bags that spill DNA below it making a reference to Jurassic World.
It looks exactly like the Utahraptor but as a better model. On the top of its head of its brown feathers look like some sort of hair, like a bowl haircut. On its snout it has a orange dent. Its mouth is exposed showing a pink mouth with white teeth. Its eyes are almost more lively as they have a white shine now. In its arms is the base of the design, where it holds two black shopping bags of DNA. The bags leaves trails of DNA behind wherever it walks. It has decent animations.
- You cannot pick up the DNA spilled from the DNA Raptor.
