Dinosaurs

Velociraptor

Velociraptor

Velociraptor pronounced Vell-oss-ee-rap-tore

Means:  Swift seizer

Period:  Late Cretaceous - 75 million years ago

Where:  Mongolia

The velociraptor played a large role in the Jurassic Park movies but was often shown inaccurately. Rather than being a larger, human sized dinosaur, the velociraptor was around the size of a turkey.

Velociraptors had feathers but could not fly! It is thought that all of today’s birds are descendants of dinosaurs.

The cassowary from Australia is often called the “modern-day velociraptor”.
