“I really enjoy the Orkosaurus riders in the Warhammer 4000 universe with their Waaaaaagggghhh but this one is different. It is Orkoraptor and we have no proof that anybody has ever attempted to ride on top of it.”

Orkoraptor is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 80 million years ago, in what is now Argentina. Its fossils were discovered in 2004 and were formally described in 2010 due to the partial nature of the fossils.
Orkoraptor was initially considered to be a much smaller theropod dinosaur, measuring around 2 meters (6.5 feet) in length and weighing about 20 kilograms (44 pounds). However, later studies concluded that must have been much larger and heavier with the size of 6 meters (22 feet) and weight of more than a 500kg (1000 lbs).
The Orkoraptor had a slender body and long, agile hindlimbs, suggesting that it was a fast and agile runner. Its teeth were long and curved, and it likely preyed on small animals such as lizards, mammals, birds and fish.
The fossils of Orkoraptor have provided valuable information about the diversity and evolution of theropod dinosaurs in South America during the Late Cretaceous period. Its discovery has also shed light on the paleoenvironment of ancient Patagonia and the ecological relationships between different species of theropods in the region.
