ADACU CREATURE FILE
ICON #002
"KAISEN"

SPECIES: VELOCIRAPTOR MONGOLIENSIS, DROMAEOSAURID. POSSIBLY A TSAAGAN MANGAS OR HYBRID BETWEEN THE TWO SPECIES, CURRENT RESEARCH IS INCONCLUSIVE.

POINT OF ORIGIN: GOBI DESERT, MONGOLIA

TIME PERIOD: CAMPANIAN OF THE LATE CRETACEOUS

HEIGHT: 3 FEET

LENGTH: 6 FEET

WEIGHT: 25 POUNDS

GENDER: MALE

AGE: ADULT, ESTIMATED 5-7 YEARS OLD

DIET: HYPOCARNIVOROUS. WILL OCCASIONALLY EAT CYCADS IN CONTAINMENT CELL FOR DIGESTIVE PURPOSES.

CAPTURED: FOUND INSIDE A CHICKEN COUP IN A SUBURB, NEAR ADERBEEN, WASHINTON STATE

LOCATED: "STABLES", SMALL-MEDIUM SIZED ANIMAL CONTAINMENT AREA IN ZOO COMPLEX

APPEARANCE: MEDIUM-SIZED MANIRAPTOR, ROUGHLY AROUND THE SIZE  A GERMAN SHEPARD OR LARGE TURKEY. BROWN FEATHERING, WHITE UNDERBELLY. DARK WINGS AND TAIL FAN. SAWLIKE TEETH, LONG SNOUT, SICKLE CLAW ON EACH FOOT. CARTILAGINOUS RIDGE ABOVE EYES, SIMILAR TO MODERN-DAY BIRDS OF PREY.

PRECAUTIONS: AGGRESSIVE AND VERY HYPERACTIVE. SHARP TEETH, CLAWED HANDS AND FEET, SICKLE CLAWS. IS KNOWN TO JUMP ON HANDLERS AND "KICK BOX" THEM, THE SICKLE CLAWS LEAVING 3-INCH DEEP STAB WOUNDS ON UNPROTECTED AREAS OF BODY. WILL NORMALLY ATTACK HANDS, STOMACH, BACK OR NECK. WILL ATTEMPT TO GET BEHIND PREY, RESTRAIN IT TO THE FLOOR AND PROCEED TO RIP CHUNKS OF FLESH OFF ANY EXPOSED AREAS OF FLESH. WHEN INSODE CELL, NEVER TURN YOUR BACK TO THE DINOSAUR, EVEN WHEN LEAVING. PERSONNEL MUST WEAR ATTACK DOG SUIT OR FALCONRY GEAR WHENEVER INTERACTING WITH DINOSAUR, USAGE OF CATTLE PROD OR SPRAY BOTTLE MAY BE NECESSARY. MEATY FOODSTUFFS CAN BE USED AS LEVERAGE TO MAKE THE DINOSAUR COMPLY OR LEAVE, AS KAISEN HAS SOME DEGREE OF INTELLIGENCE. 

BEHAVIOR: KAISEN HAS LITTLE REGARD FOR OTHER INDIVIDUALS, AND WITH FEW EXCEPTIONS, SEES ADACU PERSONNEL AS EITHER INTRUDERS ON HIS TERRITORY OR FOOD, PRESUMABLY DEPENDING ON HOW EASY IT WILL BE TO ATTACK THEM. OFTEN MOST ACTIVE DURING NIGHT HOURS, THOUGH DAYTIME INTERACTION IS ADVISED AS THE DINOSAUR WILL BE TIRED DURING THAT TIME. NORMALLY SPENDS TIME SLEEPING, SCALING PROVIDED LOGS OR PULLING APART REMAINS OF PREY. HAS LITTLE INTEREST IN NON-LIVING OBJECTS. SECURITY CAMERAS SHOW KAISEN WILL WATCH PERSONNEL OUTSIDE HIS PEN AND OBSERVE THEIR ACTIONS WHEN THEY AREN'T LOOKING.

MAINTENTENCE: IS TO BE PROVIDED 1 ADULT DISINFECTED LARGE TURKEY DAILY, GRASS FED. DIFFERENT TYPES OF FOOD, SUCH AS FROZEN MEAT, CHICKENS, AND  SMALL ANIMALS SUCH AS RODENTS AND INSECTS MAY BE PROVIDED FROM TIME TO TIME TO ENTERTAIN THE RAPTOR, AS LONG AS THE PROVIDED FOOD IS DISINFECTED, SAFE TO EAT AND APPROVED BY ADACU STANDARDS AND PRACTICES. WATER TIN IS TO BE EXTRACTED VIA HATCH IN THE FLOOR AND REFILLED EVERY TWO DAYS. PEN IS TO CLEANED OUT ONCE A WEEK, MAKE SURE TO REACH INTO THE ROOSTING AREA FOR REMAINS THE DINOSAUR MIGHT HAVE HIDDEN. IT IS BEST TO ENTER CELL WITH AN ASSOCIATE TO ENSURE SAFETY. OCCASIONALLY, KAISEN IS BROUGHT UP TO THE MAIN ADACU LEVELS FOR RESEARCH ON DINOSAUR COGNITION. PERSONNEL INVOLVED IN THESE SPECIAL PROCEDURES ARE HIGHLY TRAINED, KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE FROM THE RESEARCH AREA AT ALL TIMES. MONTHLY MEDICAL CHECKUPS AT JOHN MCLENANN'S FACILITY ARE MANDATORY TO CHECK FOR DISEASES AND PARASITES. A REINFORCED CARRIER IS OFTEN PROVIDED FOR TRANSPORT, AS KAISEN CAN BREAK THROUGH THE STANDARD PLASTIC ONES. ANY VISIBLE SYMPTOMS OF ILLNESS OR INJURY MUST BE REPORTED EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY. MAKING SURE ARE ANIMALS ARE ALIVE AND HEALTHY IS ADACU'S TOP PRIORITY. ANYONE ATTEMPTING TO RELEASE OR ENTER KAISEN'S CELL OUTSIDE OF PROPER PROTOCOL OR FEED HIM ANYTHING OUTSIDE IF HIS MAINTENANCE SCHEDULE WILL BE PUNISHED ACCORDINGLY.

i can see what you mean with the lips, i am going off the archosaurs we know, birds, crocodiles and pterosaus which all lack lips
but there is still a chance some dinosaurs had them, there is always an exception to the norm in most animals

no it's more liek saying every mammal has a full coat of fur and then you look at naked mole rats, sphinx cats and humans as exceptions to that rule
so for all we know there could have been dinosaurs who were similar
besides i was mainly agreeing with the lip thing, but i could see smaller carnivores (like this) not needing the keratin face mask that would prevent lips so i can see some with lips

A lizard, technically, doesn't need them either. The "dry gums" thing is disproven and crocodilians have exposed teeth like that because their skull is covered in a keratin sheath that prevents reptile-like lips from growing normally. The sheath is an adaption for their aquatic life. So, most reptiles we know today have lips, the crocodilian's exposed teeth is a result of their specific adaptation to water, and evo-devo research on chickens show lip-like structures on the snouts. It's likely they had lips.

But then again we found croc snouts on tyrannosaurs...

HUBLERDON Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2017  Hobbyist General Artist
And only Tyrannosaurs.

First off, Tyrannosaurs are just one branch of a massive dinosaur family tree and could have developed those snouts through their own evolution and it could just be unique to them.

Second off, they're not croc snouts. Croc snouts develop from a cracked keratin sheath on the embryo, the Daspletosaurs snout had cornified skin. The researchers compared it to a croc snout in that they had similar temperature-detecting functions (in the Tyrannosaur's case, likely something to do with incubating their eggs), but it's a completely different structure which evolved separately from what we see in Crocodilia, and until further evidence comes along, can only be considered a feature of Tyrannosaurids and possibly Tyrannosauroids.

Even then, the specimen's facial skin impressions are incomplete and the general consensus among researchers is that the scientists who examined it did an overall poor job and jumped to conclusions way too fast. Wether or not Tyrannosaurs as a clade had exposed teeth like what we see in Crocodilians is still up to debate. In short, more professional people need to take a better look at the skeleton. The updated Scarface purposefully has his jaw open for this reason, so it looks like it could close either way. We'll just have to see.

But using your logic no animal needs them, what use a lizard have for them using your logic? As soon as you look a little farther your weird argument falls apart

welp, I just typed a huge reply and then the page reloaded for no god damn reason, I pretty much said that lips are basal, obviously provide some benefit (even if not necessary), so outside of a few lineages it should be fairly obvious there would be no reason for them to lost them.

you seriously didn't think of that, this entire time you've been on your little anti-lip conquest?

the only time an animal ever loses it's lips is when there are pressures that either need the teeth to become to large to fit in them (pterosaurs, plesiosaurs) or when there is some kind of other function at play (crocodiles). Looking at theropods the only ones I see that have teeth too big are dliphosaurs and maybe ceratosaurs (I disagree, but others think they are). Spinosaurs look like they had some croc snout thing going on as well as having teeth too big. Looking at any other major group of theropods it is painfully obvious they could have lips. There has to be a reason for them to lose them, they are a basal feature that at least provides some benefits, even if they aren't wholly necessary.

The "croc snout" has been repeatedly shown to be nothing of the sort, and other than that the paper has numerous errors.
