Overview

Venatosaurus is a fictional species of dinosaur that appears in the 2005 film, King Kong.


Name

The name "Venatosaurus" means "Hunter Lizard". Hunter comes from the Latin term vēnātus, which means "hunting" or "hunt", being formed into the term "Venato". "Lizard" comes from the ancient Greek word "sauros", which was combined with a Greek and Latin root to get the word "saurus".

Appearance

Venatosauruses appear to bear a general resemblance to a featherless Utahraptor, being around five to six feet tall at the head level. Their skin is a pale forest green, with some specks of brownish red present along the flanks of the body.

Their body build is muscular, but relatively slim and lean, fitting their consistently active lifestyle.

Despite being a descendant of Velociraptor, the skull formation of the Venatosaurus is a radical departure from its predecessor. It features a much more compact and shortened appearance, being more akin to a tyrannosaurid over that of other fellow dromaeosaurs.

The eyes of the Venatosaurus are placed very high on the skull, facing forward, giving off a slightly unnatural appearance.
