Ensure you do not spit your coffee out onto the blob. It will absorb it, and with it the saliva from your mouth - and once it has a taste of human being, there is no stopping it.

It will devour all...

Not one but TWO sickle-claws on feet, and two oversized hand-claws.

Clearly, the most shock-and-awe parachutist/dive-bomber from among the maniraptorans.

I am also deeply enamoured with the recent theory that maniraptorans & proto-birds developed winglets not for flight, but as stabilizers for parkouring up near-vertical to vertical inclines
(e.g. tree trunks, cliff-faces) to escape predation and/or find a safe perch/ high-hide. Then, they could leap down, parachute-suit style, at their prey. Or run prey down.

Like a mesozoic skua, prolly chomped smaller maniraptorans, nestling pterosaurs, hatchling archelons, mesozoic popcorn (i.e. mini-mammals) fish, squid, egg-laying horseshoe crabs, whatever was small enough for these rock-drakes to tackle truculently.
