A deinonychus is a bipedal, medium-sized dinosaur that often hunts in packs of up to 12. It has brightly coloured scales, and despite being a comparatively small dinosaur is known for its ferocity.
They move faster than tigers, and are every bit as adept at pouncing on their prey. In a fight they are agile enough to use their powerful hind claws as well as their smaller front claws, and can also use their sharp teeth.
Several closely related types of dinosaurs are known to exist, such as the smaller velociraptor and the larger megaraptor.
