Dromaeosaurs (commonly called "raptors") were a group of meat-eating theropod dinosaurs with large, hooked claws on each foot. They were swift and agile hunters, using a long, stiffened tail as a counterbalance when running. The curved, serrated teeth of dromaeosaurs are relatively common. at Dinosaur Park. The Maryland dromaeosaur was about 5 feet long, making it similar in size to its relatives Velociraptor and Deinonychus.
Dromaeosaurs found in China have been discovered to have feathers, and
it is likely that their Maryland relatives were feathered as well.
