"Try to imagine yourself in the Cretaceous Period. You get your first look at this six-foot turkey as you enter a clearing. He moves like a bird, lightly, bobbing his head... You stare at him, and he just stares right back. And that's when the attack comes.

Not from the front, but from the side, from the other two 'raptors you didn't even know were there. Because Velociraptor's a pack hunter, you see; he uses coordinated attack patterns and he is out in force today. And he slashes at you with this - a six-inch retractable claw, like a razor, on the middle toe.

He doesn't bother to bite your jugular like a lion, oh no... He slashes at you here, or here... Or maybe across the belly, spilling your intestines. The point is, you are alive when they start to eat you. So, you know, try to show a little respect."
- Alan Grant, Jurassic Park

The term velociraptor means "swift seizer." It was native to Asia, while the larger deinonychus flourished in North America. It is known for its large claw, which it may have used as a weapon in the way the cassowary does today.

The velociraptor was first discovered in 1923. In 2007, a specimen was unearthed with quill knobs - protrusions to which feathers are anchored - on its forearm. This means that the velociraptor definitely wore at least some feathers.

Did you know? The velociraptors in the Jurassic Park films were much larger than fossil evidence suggests. Rather than being 6-foot-tall monsters that could look a grown man in the eye, raptors were actually about the size of a turkey.

The dinosaurs in the film were based on the velociraptor's larger cousin, deinonychus.
