Director Colin Trevorrow has been teasing “Jurassic World” fans with news of a new prehistoric beast. The internet is buzzing today with multiple reports suggesting that the first picture of the rumored Velociraptor has been revealed. Twitter user Garret Watzig posted a photo of the creature claiming that the photo is taken on set of the actual Velociraptor from “Jurassic World”. Watzig is friends with Cameron Ziegler, the son of Douglas D. Ziegler, who serves as the “special effects foreman” on the movie. Douglas D. Ziegler apparently gave his son the permission to post the picture he took of the Velociraptor.

Garret tweeted the pic with the following caption:

“This is an actual Velociraptor for the upcoming film Jurassic World! #jurassicworld #dinosaur #universalstudios #StevenSpielberg #Velociraptor #HYPE,”

Check out the pic!

The friendly folks over at jurassicworld.org confirmed with multiple sources that the photo is in fact real! Cameron and Garret also teased eager “Jurassic World” fans that more photos and a video will be sent soon.

They tweeted the following:
