Scraptors are bipedal creatures that stand on two treaded feet and have an elongated head with grooved jaws, glowing eyes and a long torso with two extendable grabbing claws. Like some Dinotrux, their color depends on the individual, with it being shown that one Scraptor is all-black with blue eyes, while another is desert-tan with yellow eyes.
Scraptors, much like the flying Scrapadactyls and the smaller Scraptools, are used to collecting and in their and the former's case, even feeding on scrap metal from other Dinotrux, making them cannibals or predators of sorts. Though this is their main food supply, they will also eat ore and Tools. They live in hives, which they build nests made out of scrap in, and they are diurnal, meaning that they don't search for scrap when the sun goes down. According to George, the reason for their diurnal behavior is that they are "afraid of the dark". Scraptors will also protect their eggs and hatchlings from harm, and if a single Scraptor is separated from its pack, then it will call out to any others of its kind in the vicinity.
