Velociraptor

Velociraptors were small but fierce predators that roamed the Earth during the Late Cretaceous period. These creatures were about the size of a modern-day turkey, but had razor-sharp teeth, strong jaws and grasping hands that made them effective hunters. Despite being a popular subject in movies and pop culture, the real-life velociraptor was far from the monstrous creatures depicted on screen. However, their unique physical and behavioural characteristics make them an interesting and important part of the Earth’s fossil record.
