Gigantoraptor, the Gigantic Thief
(image source: https://dinosaurpictures.org/Gigantoraptor-pictures)
Host Matthew Donald and guest co-host Stephen Curro discuss Gigantoraptor, which, like the name suggests, is a gigantic raptor. A big Oviraptor, not Velociraptor, since they’re two totally different families. Pay attention. From the Late Cretaceous, this 26-foot oviraptorosaur browsed from trees and plucked poor creatures off the ground like the demonic ostrich it was. That’d be a much better name for it than “gigantic thief,” I reckon. What would that be, Diablostruthius? I’d be terrified of such a thing. You heard it here first if that ends up being a proper genus in the future.”
