Velociraptor americanus (meaning "American swift seizer" in Latin), also known as the goblin, is a species of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that originally lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the latter part of the Cretaceous Period and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii and a pack of live Velociraptor americanus now are on display in Velociraptor Pridelands in Inland Plains section of Cretaceous Park located in Sacramento, California. Smaller than most other ground dromaeosaurids like Deinonychus and Achillobator, Velociraptor americanus nevertheless shared many of the same anatomical features. It is a bipedal, feathered carnivore with a long tail and an enlarged sickle-shaped claw on each hindfoot, which is used to tackle and latch onto prey, similar to birds of prey and unlike outdated depictions of dromaeosaurs. Velociraptor americanus can be distinguished from other dromaeosaurids by its long and low skull, with an upturned snout. Velociraptor americanus are normally solitary animals, feeding mainly on smaller animals and carrion, but can sometimes hunt in packs to hunt larger animals as big as pigs and sheep, and Velociraptor americanus that live in packs are given domestic pigs and sheep to hunt. Despite their carnivorous diet and pack-hunting behavior, Velociraptor americanus are actually friendly towards sapient species, even willing to be petted by them and to play with them, in a manner similar to domestic cats and dogs, and are also found inside the Dromaeosaur Den walkthrough in Cretaceous Park's Rainforest Cafe as a result of their friendly nature.
Velociraptor americanus are also found throughout the wilderness and human settlements of North America, most likely a result of many of the escaped Velociraptor americanus that survived and bred in the North American ecosystems. In North American ecosystems, they are known to live in packs up to about 9 in a single group. They compete successfully with coyotes, bobcats, lynx, cougars, and bears, despite all known species of native carnivorous mammals adapting to deal with Velociraptor americanus around. Velociraptor americanus are able to adapt to life in rural areas, cities, and suburban environments, adjusting their behavior to be tolerated by humans, by not preying on pets and becoming completely tame towards humans and pets.
