"They're drawn to the flare..."
—Slade and Joseph Turok, on the Utahraptor and its attraction to flares

The Utahraptor, more commonly known as the "Raptor", is a dinosaur that appears throughout the Turok franchise.

Acclaim VariantsEdit

Turok: Dinosaur HunterEdit

Main article: Raptor

A variant of the Utahraptor appears in Turok: Dinosaur Hunter under the name of Raptor. They are depicted as generally large, with brown skin. Unique to them is a metallic spike present on their nose, which is presumed to be artificial.

Turok: EvolutionEdit

The Utahraptors of Turok: Evolution share the same appearance as those of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter. They are present in the early jungle levels and the Shadowed Lands.

The Sleg also capture Utahraptors and keep them penned up inside the Sleg Fortress. Some variants have the ability to use a jump attack. To add to this, variants also have blue and orange skin, while others are black with white stripes.

UtahraptorsEdit

The default Utahraptor in Turok has the same basic appearance as the series's predecessors; however, they can come in a variety of coloration, the first being a yellow-ish beige, the second being a darker brown/black color, and the last being a deep, but easily noticeable, blue hue.

Early on in Turok's development, these Utahraptors only appeared in their brown-ish color and appeared in a much more zombie-like manner, with a more hostile and intimidating overall appearance.

Spitter UtahraptorEdit

A grey coloured version of the Utahraptor that spits poison. It resembles a regular Utahraptor with the exception that it possesses no feathers. In their place, it has spines sticking out of its back and a yellow sack under its neck. In essence, the Spitter can perform all of the attacks of a regular Utahraptor, but it can also spit poison.

The poison can kill the player with two direct hits, and it also hinders their movement for a few seconds. While it is never stated in game, it is believed that the Spitters are a result of the Mendel-Gruman Corporation experimenting with genetic engineering, such as with the Soldier Bugs.

Albino UtahraptorEdit

While not a true variant like the Spitter, Albino Utahraptors are physically the same as a standard Utahraptor with pale skin and stripes on their back. They also have glowing red and white eyes and are first encountered in the level "Death Valley" in the caves. They are also encountered in the abandoned MG Base in Mother Superior.

They are only active at night or in dark places like caves. It is possible that it is due to living their whole lives in darkness that they have lost their natural skin pigmentation and, thus, appear as a pale color compared to standard Utahraptors. It is highly possible that this underground lifestyle gives them sensitive eyes, which would explain why they only appear in dark places and never in the sunlight.

Turok 2

Turok 2 would have included a few variants of Utahraptors based on the environment. The differences would be more noticeable then a simple skin color change, and it would have added differing visual features to the Utahraptors. The variants include:

Jungle UtahraptorEdit

Jungle Utahraptors are Utahraptors that live in the jungle. They have more feathers and appear more like their real-life counterparts than other variants. They are also more colorful than other variants and are exclusive to lush, jungle areas.

A render of the Jungle Utahraptor shows the dinosaur having no feathers, which might have hinted at two species of the Jungle Utahraptor.

Desert UtahraptorEdit

As their name suggests, Desert Utahraptors live in dry areas such as deserts. Instead of having feathers like their Jungle counterparts, they have rock-like spikes on their body and are more brown/tan in color.

It is very possible that the rock like scales would have given them increased damage resistance.

The Desert variant is the most prevalent in most Turok 2 artwork and screenshots, and thus far, it is the only dinosaur besides the Desert Tyrannosaurus to appear in content besides concept art, as there are a few screenshots containing it, including one with the dinosaur being controlled by the Jak.

Swamp UtahraptorEdit

As their name suggests they live in aquatic environments, especially swamps. The Swamp Utahraptor's appearance is the most drastically different from other Utahraptors as they have several fish-like features, such as fins along their necks, backs, and tails and thin, sharp teeth specialized for eating aquatic animals.

There is only concept art of this creature, unlike the other variants, which have renders and even screenshots shown of them.

RealityEdit

The Utahraptor of Turok is very close to the same size as the actual Utahraptors. The Utahraptor of Turok has a few head feathers similar to the Velociraptors of Jurassic Park III, although real Utahraptors had a full coat of feathers and even wing feathers on their arms.

TriviaEdit

  • The Utahraptors in Turok feature inaccurately pronated (facing the body) hands, like the raptors of the Jurassic Park series.
