Dino-Birds are a species of carnivorous, feathered dromeosaurid dinosaurs. The actual species of the Dino-Birds is never revealed.


Dino-Birds have their wings, backs, heads and tails covered with red feathers. Alongside the feathers, they also possess blue scales, white bellies and a black beak-like mouth, full of sharp teeth. Like any other Dromeosaur, they have a hook-like claw in their feet, along with two other claws.


Some Dino-Birds traveled in packs to take down much larger prey, like The Dino-Bird Family, but others traveled alone. They are believed to have lived the same time the Tyrannosaurus Rex lived.


Known Dino-Birds[]


  • The Dino-birds are the first species of dinosaurs to be shown fully speaking like the mammals in the franchise.  
  • The Dino-birds were probably Dakotaraptors, which were discovered in 2015 and lived alongside Tyrannosaurus Rex. This can be noticed especially in the large 'killing claw' on the Dino-Birds, which were present on raptors and raptor-like dinosaurs in the past.
  • Real Dakotaraptors and other Dromaeosaurs could not fly, unlike the Dino-Birds portrayed in the movie. However one genus of genus of crow-sized Dromaeosaur, Microraptor, was capable of limited flight due to the presence of well-developed pennaceous feathers on both its arms and its legs.
  • Unlike other dromaeosaurs in pop culture, the dino-birds were given both scales and feathers, including wings and a tail fan, which they had in real life. However, in dromeasaurs the feather covering would have been similar to that of extant birds, covering almost all of the body, minus the bottom of the feet, the tip of the nose, and possibly the shin. This difference can be explained in the same way of the previous one.
