____________________________________CHANGES, UPDATES AND NOTES:1 - FEMALES CAN NOW HAVE TENDRILS DUE TO LANDSLIDE VOTE - [link]
2 - I had been thinkin for months for a new psyrap eye that was unlike anything I was already seeing out there, but would also fit in with the story im working on and wouldnt be too "out there". In the eye section you can see the new eye design for psyrap. Its like a vertical slit with a pinhole in the middle, irises are still bioluminescent.
3 - the teeth! they were NOT changed however i had to EMPHASIZE the fact that the incisors/canines are SWITCHED AROUND! alot of ppl didnt seem to notice this difference.
CHANGES NOT YET REFLECTED ON THE REFSHEET:
-Tendrils give off a soft illumination where the markings are the lightest.
-Tail tufts have more form to them
-Females have longer, thinner tennas.
-The only tattoo-compatible areas are the ears, tail, and tendrils.

____________________________________Can I Make My Own Psychoraptor Character?Yes, as long as u credit me by either linking to me or this refsheet, as well as sending me a link to your drawing so i can fave it.Are psyraps dinosaurs?NO. Adding fur and ears to a dinosaur and calling it a psyrap is the same as adding spots to a wolf and calling it a hyena. They are NOT the same and have significantly different anatomy.Can I borrow parts to use as clip art for my non-psyrap artwork?No, this is a bad idea. Once again, the psyrap anatomy may be similiar but it is NOT like wolves or hyenas or dinosaurs. You will look like a moron using the psyrap tooth layout as a reference for a wolf, or their foot design as a reference for a velociraptor! Please always look at PHOTOS for references!Do psychoraptors have a specific breeding season or are they the type which breed whenever conditions are stable enough?they have no specific breeding seasonWhat are the chances that only a single pup will be born? Is there a remote chance that more than 2 pups will be born?wild psyraps are more likely to give birth to 1 then to 3 (domestic psyraps give birth to more)What is the average adult weight?i cant really give a weight but it's definitely more than 100 pounds.What is the max bite force of a psychoraptortheir bite force is probably stronger than a wolf but not more than a hyena, as they don't specialize in scavenging. they are however fully capable of supporting their entire body weight on their jaws alone.If an adult fights and kills the Grip leader, does the Grip name remain the same or does it change to that of the new leader?Yes, the name gets changed.Do Psyraps name themselves? or do mothers/fathers/other familly members/Grip members?They do not name themselves. They are usually named by the gripleader OR a sentient apex being (a human, for example.)Can they have any coat, facial and tail markings? Are tongues patterned?Basically the same "rules" apply to fan made psyraps, as do for "wolf" characters. They could technically be any marking or pattern, but only some could truly exist in the "real" world.Can I get more help/details on naming my psyrap?Psyrap names tend to be unrelated to their selfs, unlike other animals. Their name tends to be a "word salad," which is basically a somewhat random name that sounds like it's rational, but in fact have no real logic behind them. For example, "Escape Horizon", "Limited Rocks", and "Presses Sideways", OR a word where some of the letters have been switched around, such as "StopGopper" (Gobstopper), "Runsise" (Sunrise), and "Fantarm" (Antfarm).What are the height averages (to the sholders) of a average psy-rap?When on all fours, I would say their shoulders go up to about the average human hip area. Smaller ones about the thigh area and larger ones to the waist area. This would be for natural psyraps that appear in my novels. OC, personal psyraps can be of any height.In anthromorphic form, do psyraps still use their feral voice box, or can they talk like humans?I would say that is completely up to the individual character's owner, since everybody has a different view of what anthropomorphic truely is. What are psyrap tongues like and why?They are flat when relaxed but when stretched out beyond the mouth they gain a more conical shape near the tip, and they are very prehensile. Their is an inner tube that acts like a straw to aid in drinking liquid and feeding tiny offspring mouths. The purpose for these traits is because currently they use their tongues to help them camouflage with their surroundings when trying to ambush prey, since some of the fauna from their planet display "tongue like" adornments, or tendrils.Why the name?The term psychoraptor is actually their species nickname, not scientific name, which stuck after they where initially mislabeled as a raptor species (such as aardwolves or koala bears). "Psycho" comes from the sounds they make. The name also persisted since "psychoraptor" can be loosely translated to "mind thief," which matches not only the manner in which they hunt, but also the fact that they seem to fight over the brain matter of their prey.(Feel free to ask me any questions about psychoraptors that havent been answered in the reference!
