A pack of four Sharpteeth (Velociraptors) appear in The Land Before Time III: The Time of the Great Giving, as the main antagonists.
The pack appears during the climax, not long after Hyp is rescued from a tar pit in The Mysterious Beyond, and is reprimanded by his father for getting into danger. They come down from the hills to prey upon the group of dinosaurs, though one individual is knocked out and possibly killed by a falling stone not long into the brawl. The leaf eater children are guided away from the battle by Hyp's father, while the other adults attempt to fend off the marauding dromaeosaurs, which chase the escaping party not long afterwards. The children comes across a large, rock wall, where the raptors await them. A standoff between the sharpteeth and the adults begins, though only shortly, as the cliff collapses not long afterwards.
A good deal of the adults are knocked unconscious by the sudden collapse of the rock wall, though the sharpteeth very quickly recover, and close in on the herbivores. Hyp's father attempts to stop the carnivores from making a meal out of the other grownups, and Hyp distracts them away. The other adults regain consciousness, and attack the Velociraptors. The children, attempting to aid the adults, manage to push a large boulder onto the dromaeosaurs, though they very quickly recover. With the collapse of yet another rock wall, however, water begins to flood the narrow valley in which the characters are located. The herbivorous dinosaurs manage to escape the rush of water, though the raptors are ultimately washed away, they become relocated to a different area of the Mysterious Beyond.
- Though there are intially four raptors involved in the fight, one is knocked out by a falling rock early on. Even if he managed to survive, he likely would have drowned in the surge of water in the climax of the fight.
- They are the first major Fast Biters to appear in the franchise.
- Unrealistically, they suffered no injuries and kept coming back during the fight; a common trait associated in most of the Sharpteeth in the Land Before Time franchise.
- ↑ Petrie refers to an individual as a 'he'.
