Velociraptors! Ever since the film, Jurassic Park, few dinosaurs have captured the imagination of children and adults alike as the dreaded Velociraptor. Hunting in packs and using their frightening hooked claws to take down dinosaurs larger than themselves, these wily carnivores have won a place as one of the scariest and fiercest dinosaurs.

The Velociraptor was a carnivorous dinosaur thought to be a speedy, dangerous hunter. It was the smallest member of the Dromaeosauridae family, which includes larger dinos like Deinonychus and Achillobator. It lived around 75 million years ago, during the late Cretaceous period. Its fossils have been found in Mongolia.

Interesting facts about Velociraptors:

As fun as it is to imagine Velociraptors the way they’re portrayed in Jurassic Park, the truth is they were actually very different. For example, Velociraptor fossils have never been found in North America, they were much smaller than the villainous creatures in the movie, plus many scientists think they were feathered. The Deinonychus probably looked more like the Velociraptor of Jurassic Park.

Scientists think Velociraptors could jump as high as 10 feet (3 meters)!

Its name – “swift thief” – is apt, as it is thought to have been able to run up to 40 mph (60 kph) in short bursts.
