    This large Dromaeosaur was the dominant raptor of the late Cretaceous period in North America. This theropod was rather small at 7 feet or so in length, but made up for its size with a large mouth full of serrated teeth. Like the other raptors they possessed a large "sickle" claw on each foot. It probably hunted in packs and may have been feathered. Fossil remains include well preserved teeth, bones, and claws, and are highly valued by collectors. These top quality specimens were all legally collected from private lands in the northwestern US. Late Cretaceous, Hell Creek Fm. & Lance Creek FM. (66 MYA). Note - this late Cretaceous raptor species has not been named yet and is referred as a large Hell Creek (Lance Creek) Dromaeosaur raptor dinosaur.

    Note -  Hell Creek Formation named raptor dinosaurs. There are only two named raptor dinosaurs in the Hell Creek / Lance Creek Formations - Acheroraptor temertyorum (2013) with a distinct ribbed appearance of the enamel running the full length of the crown. Dakotaraptor steini (2015) was a large raptor possessing teeth with consistent characteristics with the typical big Hell Creek raptor teeth. The large Hell Creek raptor teeth may or may not all be Dakotaraptor teeth. Both are Dromaeosaurid raptor dinosaurs.
