The Deinonychosaurs are a group of meat eating dinosaurs that are well known for their sickle shaped claws they wield. They where small but fast animals, and they hunt in packs. Several species have appeared in Primeval.
Two adults and one baby Dromaeosaurus enter a shopping mall. The adults kill two security guards and the baby severely injures a Cleaner. The team tranquilize the female and use the baby to attract the male. It successfully attracts the male, but the male eats the baby, and is finally tranquilized by Connor. They return it through the anomaly, but the male wakes up and chases Nick Cutter and Stephen Hart into the anomaly to the shopping mall. It grabs a hold of Stephen's ankle, but the team pull him through as the anomaly closes, severing the raptors head off.
After finding an anomaly a pack of raptors attack, killing McCann. The team run into them again during a flash flood, where the pack attacks and kills Brice and Willoby.
When Connor comments on how nice Jenny looks, Cutter says "so does a Velociraptor."
Leek captured three Dromaeosaurus. It is possible that they were captured from the shopping mall. It is even possible that these raptors are the parents to the baby in the shopping mall (which explains why the raptors ate the baby). When the system went off line in the creature prison, the raptors where let loose, along with all the other creatures. One was killed by Stephen wielding a Glock 17. The other two raptors and the rest of the creatures killed Stephen, then the other two were killed by the other creatures.
Troodons are seen. They are first seen eating a a dead Anatotitan and then they kills Jenkins.
