Description: Deinonychus is a large dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lives in the Western and Northern portion of Isla Dinosauria.
They are active both night and day using their tiger-like striping to stay hidden in tall grass when they're resting.
Their main prey is larger dinosaurs like Tenontosaurus but they will also eat any small animal they come across. They're hunting method is similar to wolves. Running in packs and taking down prey together using their sickle-shaped claws to slash and kill their prey, trying to make as many bleeding wounds as possible until the animal either dies from blood loss or shock.
Deinonychus live in large packs led by a dominant pair and are extremely territorial. When the females lay their eggs both the male and female take care of them.
Males are bright orange with tiger-like stripes and dark green eyes. Females are darker, browner, smaller, and have yellow eyes. Young females are the same as the adult females and so are young males except they have fluffy down on their body that they soon lose.
Their intelligence level is just below that of Troodon. They have few predators, but they do have competition from larger meat-eaters like Utahraptor, Albertosaurus, and Tyrannosaurus rex.
