The "Jurassic Park" Raptors Have A Little Secret

They're HUMAN.

This is more or less what made it into some of the movie's most iconic scenes:

According to the Stan Winston's School's site, the first scene filmed with the suit was one of the most memorable in the film: the kitchen.

“That was my first big scene," said [raptor suit operator] Rosengrant, "and as I was getting ready to do it, it occurred to me that it was a big deal. I didn’t have stage fright, really, because I had rehearsed that moment over and over again. I’d practiced so much, I could have done it in my sleep.

Anyway, now you know. It's definitely worth reading the whole blog post about the creation of the suit. There's a nice long video, too.
