Velociraptor
Meaning: Speedy Thief


Velociraptor was a fast-running, two-legged dinosaur. This meat-eater had about 80 very sharp, curved teeth in a long, flat snout. Some of the teeth were over an inch (2.5 cm.) long. This predator had an S-shaped neck, arms with three-fingered clawed hands, long thin legs, and four-toed clawed feet. Velociraptor's head was about 7 inches (18 cm.) long.
Velociraptor may have been able to run up to roughly 40 mph- 60 hr for short bursts.
Velociraptor was a carnivore, a meat eater. It probably ate just about anything it could slash and tear apart. It may have hunted in packs. It ate Protoseratops. One was found fossilized with Velociraptor in a battle to the death. This dinosaur probably ate many other plant-eaters, like Hadrosaur the duck-billed dinosaur.
