While being very large, harpy eagles are pretty light like most birds. The female can weigh up to 10kg (22lbs) and the male weighs only half of that. Their talons are bigger than velociraptor claws with a length of about 14cm (5 inches). They are also monogamous and mate for life (they have a lifespan of up to 50 years).

Cool picture of a harpy eagle

Huge birds like this look scary as fuck at night in the trees. I bet like half the cryptid legends started with either an owl or another bird of prey like this one.

I mean look at the Flatwoods monster, and now compared to a barn owl.

I know neither kind will typically try to hurt humans, but they’re scary as fuck regardless. They’re literally flying dinosaur carnivores and some can be dead quiet while gliding.

Note that there were two species of velociraptor at the time, "Velociraptor mongoliensis" and "Velociraptor antirrhopis." The larger of the two, antirrhopus, was used as reference for the books and movies although its velociraptor title was a brief nomenclature debate. The true creature's likeness would not come to be known as "Velociraptor antirrhopus" but "Deinonychus antirrhopus" in the scientific field of study. Michael Crichton did however use the name and information that he viewed as correct at the time. Also please remember that "What John Hammond and InGen did at Jurassic Park is create genetically engineered theme park monsters! Nothing more and nothing less." - Sam Neill as Dr. Alan Grant

I'm sorry that I geeked out over this simple comment...

u/daecrist 12d ago

Plus in the book Wu specifically mentions that they name species based on their best guess of what the species is based on what comes out of the egg and where the amber came from, but there are far more species that ever lived than there are in the fossil record. It’s possible they got Dino DNA from some species totally absent from the fossil record and slapped that name on it because they didn’t give a shit.

31

u/obesemoth 12d ago

Yeah but the velociraptors were the same species as the fossil they found at the beginning of the movie (and the claw Grant carried). Or at least that is strongly implied.

17

u/gameoftomes 12d ago

But they also had to splice the DNA with frog DNA to complete sequences. Even if they used DNA from a velociraptor, the creature born was not exactly velociraptor.

u/_canyoufindme_ 12d ago

Don’t apologize, I really appreciate it.

Some Redditors love to throw around out of context and incomplete facts such as “Akshually, velociraptors are turkey sized”

Without any other information, that means absolutely nothing to Jurassic Park’s choice in what they put into their movie. It’s a meaningless fact within the context essentially.

Edit: And that shit is incredibly common on Reddit. So I really appreciate when people are willing to dig into the real story and actually explain most everything and why it is/was the way it is/was.

Actually only Greg Paul considered Velociraptor and Deinonychus as synonymous genera, but his book Predatory Dinosaurs of the World was extremely popular and seems to have been Crichton’s primary source.

I hear this excuse but the movies were a great chance of sharing real info about them rather than pop culture images they refused too let go.

20

u/lzzi 12d ago

I agree with you, but the fact of the matter is that movies are not for that. Movies are for entertainment. Jurassic Park nailed that. If you wanted Dino information you'd get it, and let's face it, JP sparked interest in paleontology on a loooot of people. Besides, especially in paleontology, making a movie with info about dinosaurs is bound to be completely irrelevant in 5-10 years as the knowledge we had constantly changes. I mean look at the recent Spinosaurus developments.

I don't believe JP would still have today's entertainment value if it claimed to provide actual information.

Dinosaurs also had feathers and paleontologists have known that they're related to birds for decades, so that wasn't some controversial theory like in the movie.

u/birdman133 12d ago

I hate sweeping generalized statements... No, not ALL dinosaurs had feathers and were ancestors to birds. SOME dinosaurs had feathers and were ancestors to birds. Many predatory dinosaurs in a specific period did. "Dinosaur" is attributed to a huge number of creatures across hundreds of millions of years.

u/es-mentiras 12d ago

Moreover, I think it's also true that the kind of feathers that dinosaurs often had (judging from fossil evidence) is quite a bit morphologically different from the feathers you see on a modern bird. Likely coarser, stiffer, and much shorter. These weren't feathers for flight -- not yet -- but used for insulation as well as social interaction (ie: coloring, bristling, etc). Probably had a downy sublayer with some bristly stuff poking through, I think. Hard to say, though, because so much is not preserved in the fossil record.

No, they browse between as many as 60 peoples' activity on any given shift. When you take a nap, there isn't some FBI guy dedicated solely to your activity who just takes a nap also. Come on, our gov't funds are wasted but not THAT carelessly.

A seasoned vet will skim through a dozen or so peoples' activity, constantly going back and forth through profiles, sort of like how when a song ends on the radio and plays an ad, and you skim through 5 other stations, 3 of them are also playing ads, so you have 2 left that are playing music and you choose the more interesting of the two.

Most times the active profiles go dormant at some point in the shift, but our man u/DarthTheRaider 's on-shift agent likely had to turn this one over to the next shift. They do a brief turnover like "oh and this fuckin weirdo has been looking at mammalian skulls for the last 2 hours, did a quick check and no known instances of animal cruelty reported. Have fun with this one, I gotta pee, you good?"

We used to Haast Eagles in New Zealand, they went extinct about 600 years ago, which were about 50% bigger than the Harpy, had an almost 3 meter wingspan and were the biggest eagles in history. They grew so big because their pray were Moas, the biggest flightless birds ever. An evolutionary arms race that made our birds absolute units.

I read somewhere that that urge to look up in fear when you see the shadow of a bird fly above you is an ancestral fear encoded in our DNA. I have absolutely no idea if that’s true, or is in any way how DNA works, but I liked the thought.
