Velociraptor (Raptor)

The Velociraptor (or sometimes called Raptor) is known as one of the fastest dinosaurs. They are bipedal feathered carnivores that stand around 7 feet high. They have a long tail and an enlarged sickle-shaped claw on their hindfoot, which is presumed to have been used to tackle down its prey.

The Velociraptor has a large hand with three strongly curved claws with the second digit as the longest and has typically been depicted to be used as a slashing weapon.

Fossils of Velociraptor have been discovered in Mongolia and they are believed to have existed roughly around 71 to 75 million years ago during the latter part of the Cretaceous Period.
