Mmm there's certainly something special about this one... a 'je ne sais quoi'. It's a Pyroraptor. Had it not been for a forest fire sweeping through Southern France, our little feathered friend may have gone undiscovered... and my life insurance would be just that little bit cheaper!

Pyroraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid dinosaur that originated from Late Cretaceous Europe. It is part of the Dominion Biosyn Expansion.


A Pyroraptor was present in the sanctuary created by BioSyn, and it attempted to kill Owen Grady and Kayla Watts after their plane crashed in its territory.[1]






Known from what is now Southern France in the Argiles et Grès à Reptiles Formation and and Northern Spain in the Tethys Ocean, both of which were once part of an island landmass known as Ibero-Armorica during the Late Cretaceous, Pyroraptor coexisted alongside a variety of species such as ornithopods, titanosaurid sauropods, abelisaurids, nodosaurids, other dromaeosaurids, azhdarchid pterosaurs, and crocodylomorphs as well as the prehistoric reptiles, amphibians, birds, and mammals of the time.
