Utahraptors are arid mountain dwellers, preferring to stay away from the colder peaks where more large predators thrive. Although they are the largest of all the dromaeosaurids, they retain their tendency to hunt in large packs. The utahraptor hunts anything slower than itself, from mammals such as deer and bears, to larger prey such as iguanodonts and hadrosaurs, occasionally even injured sauropods and tyrannosaurs. And the juvenile Utahraptors often learn how to hunt by practicing on rodents, and sometimes large arthropods. These ruthless killers are much less friendly than their Ground Hawk cousins, and even seem to take perverse pleasure in hunting humanoids and other intelligent creatures. Peculiarly, they show a fondness for eating gnomes, it has been hypothesized that this is due to the scent glands in a gnome's body producing an aroma most humanoids cannot sense, but the raptors can. Whatever it is, gnomes and groups with gnomes in them are at higher risk of being attacked by Utahraptors.
