Huh, thought Deinonychus was bigger than that. Guess the people who keep saying Deinonychus is the true JP Velociraptor are thinking of Austroraptor or Utahraptor.

Haven't seen a lot of Dakotaraptor teeth around. Even though the species was described fairly recently you would think isolated teeth would have been found in abundance.

Yes, I remember reading somewhere that the "Velociraptor" in JP was embellished in size, since  Deinonychus was the biggest dromaeosaurid  described, up until then (1993).

Spielberg wanted the Velociraptors to be bigger, and therefore, more scary. 

Utahraptor was discovered in 1991, but I don't think it was formally described at the time. 

Dakotaraptor was found in 2005.

Have not seen very many Dakotaraptor teeth so they appear to be scarce.  Having said that the teeth are difficult to identify and look very similiar to juvie Nanotyrannus teeth.   Some that I've seen on the market were misidentified.  I have yet to find one.  Most sellers are clueless in how to properly Identify them, so caution.

Today is Velociraptor Awareness Day!

Velociraptor mongoliensis is a dromaeosaurid dinosaur. Its known from the late Campanian of Mongolia & lived ~73 million years ago. There is a second referred species, V. osmolskae, but it may be closer to Tsaagan & may need a new genus name.
