Welcomed by Carnivores and Herbivores unless nesting.
Able to flee across water sources if threatened.
Will often share kills with other Carnivores.
“Pecks” at larger creatures (carnivore and herbivore alike) to “clean” them.
Group Size| Unlimited.
Solo/Paired/Packed: Wary of larger creatures, but won’t avoid them unless threatened away, usually by those that are nesting
One might hear the name Velociraptor and think of a deadly, fast, intelligent pack hunter that takes down prey viciously and without warning. And they would be correct...if that prey was about the size of a housecat or medium size dog. The truth is that the “Velo” is quite harmless to all but the smallest creatures, and is, in fact, often a welcome sight to some species. While any nesting creature on the island will always be wary of these small dromaeosaurs and likely threaten them off, as hatchlings and juveniles are about the only thing these small creatures can kill, anything larger than that seems not to care about them, including their larger cousins the Utahraptors, and will even happily share kills with them, as the small creatures hardly eat anything, or are worth any food themselves.
But why would herbivores tolerate something that eats meat when young weren’t around?
They act as corpse-cleaners that could keep away larger predators, preferring to scavenge when possible instead of hunting, and also have a habit of nipping away at mites or other such parasites that might burrow into the skin of adults. Even the island’s carnivores enjoy this facet of Velo behavior. This makes the Velociraptor one of the cornerstones of the ecosystem, and almost a friend to anything that isn’t young and small. The only time they might prove dangerous is in a large pack where their speed can overtake a small prey animal, but otherwise, these small, even curious, creatures seem more interested in being useful than being eaten, and are more inquisitive than dangerous when it comes to humans.
