Popularity Ruins Dinosaurs Anyway
Sinraptor, again like other Chinese dinosaurs, is just not that popular in the regular mediums; there are no dedicated children's books, no documentaries where it is considered a key player, and it is only mounted as a full skeleton in a very small number of museums. It has however, made it into the realm of toys
and also into the collectable card game market, as we mentioned before here on Monday.
Where he looks fairly awesome
One of the the most important things to remember about this Late Jurassic predator is that, even though not particularly popular, they are the ancestors to more known theropods such as Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus which makes it quite a big deal even if Sinraptor itself isn't very popular.
