What Raptor Is This Skull From?

Recommended Posts

Me and my friend have been having a debate over an online picture of theropod skull. He says it's a velociraptor skull while I say it's likely from a Deinonychus. We have no info on it's origins or age but I would like the hear any other opinions on what this skull could have came from.

Thanks!

Are we looking at a 3-D printer product, or what?

Definitely looks like a Deinonychus antirrhopus skull to me.

The Velociraptor mongoliensis ' snout is longer and more upwardly curved.
