From the Indomnious Rex to Indoraptor, it looks like Jurassic World: Dominion will introduce another lab-created dino.
After a long wait of hearing about more surprises, fans got an exclusive first look at Chris Pratts’ character on the run from a new form of raptor. The image, released by Empire Magazine , shows the 42-year-old actor with the new hybrid known as the “Atrociraptor.” It appears this new breed of velociraptor has a brutal background compared to its genetic ancestor. Like any other velociraptor, they are known to hunt their prey stealthy.

But unlike velociraptors, Atrociraptors have the ability to hunt non-stop. In regards to the image, Director Colin Trevorrow shared more details about the Atrociraptor with Empire, detailing how it is evident this new hybrid species in Jurassic World: Dominion is more deadly.
“Its a sequence set in Malta. And the picture speaks for itself- it’s Chris Pratt being chased by Atrociraptor. And if they catch up, he’s gonna die, I can tell you that,” said Trevorrow. “Where the Velociraptor is a little bit more of stealth hunter, the Atrociraptors are a bit more brutish. These things will just come at you. And in this Particular case, they’ve picked up his scent, and they’re not going to stop until he’s dead. They’re pretty brutal. They’re pretty vicious.”Colin Trevorrow, in Empire Magazine
First Look at the Atrociraptor from Jurassic World: Dominion
By looking at the exclusive photo for the upcoming film, the vicious creature would stop at nothing to hunt Owen down. However, there are more surprises to consider since the Atrociraptor is not the only hybrid fans will see. According to ComicBookMovie.com, the film will also introduce another raptor variant which is called the Pyroraptor and reports say that the creature could possibly be a fire-breathing dinosaur. Sound interesting for a raptor to breathe fire but since there are no images or concept art revealed, fans are going to have to wait and see.
