Deinonycanis is part of the Chaos Effect toy line from Kenner. It is a mixture of Deinonychus and Canis dirus (better known as the Dire Wolf). Although never released as a toy, the animal's Bio on its box would have probably said it lived as well as hunted in packs(which would show that it followed the behaviors of both animals it had DNA from, the Deinonychus and the Dire Wolf.) it probably would have high intelligence, resulting from a mixing of Wolf and dromeosaur intellectual abilities. The photo is of the Deinocanis the sketch is of Deinonycanis even though the figure is actually unnamed.
The idea behind Deinocanis was to breed a hybrid that could be controlled by humans with ease but like all other experimental dinosaur hybrids deinocanis used it enhanced sense of smell and hearing to track down and hunt its creators instead of obeying them, at last 7 of the packhunters was created. Deinocanis are fast, smart and very dangerous.
- If translated literally, "Deinonycanis" translates to "Terrible Dog".
- It can be noted that Deinonycanis looks similar to the Troodon seen in Jurassic Park: The Game.
