|Velociraptor (vel-o-si-rap-tor) meaning
"Swift Robber," lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 85 to 75
million years ago. This fast running two-legged dinosaur was about 2 ½ to 3 feet tall and
5 to 6 feet long, yet only weighed approximately 15 to 30 pounds. At approximately the
size of a large dog, the Velociraptor was much smaller than it was portrayed in the
Jurassic Park films. Velociraptor is a member of the dromaeosaurids, one of
the most intelligent of all the dinosaurs. Hunting in packs, and with a mouth full of
razor sharp teeth, Velociraptor was a ferocious predator. But most frightening was
its 3 ½-inch long sickle-like retractable claw on each foot, capable of slicing into its
prey with long deadly gashes. Found in Mongolia, Russia, and China.
