Velociraptor is a carnivorous dinosaur that lived 75 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period. The name Velociraptor is combined the Latin word "Velox", which means swift and the Latin word "Raptor" which means robber.
It is a smart hunting dinosaur, although it was comparable in size to a contemporary turkey and had feathers. It was weighed approximately 30 pounds and stood a little bit over 3 feet tall. It is believed that the Velociraptor hunted and scavenged for small animals. Its diet most likely consisted of reptiles, small mammals, insects, and smaller dinosaurs. Although it is usually depicted as being an aggressive hunter in the movies, more than likely it was more of a scavenger than a hunter.
The Velociraptor is thought to have killed its prey with sickle-shaped claws on its rear feet. In film media, it has usually depicted as larger than the actual Velociraptor; something more akin to the size of Deinonychus or Utahraptor, which are related but larger species of Theropod. And weren't the man-sized reptilian dinosaurs they were depicted in the film.
