Living the Life of a Velociraptor
by: Jaimee H., Grade: 6+


I woke early in the morning while my fellow Velociraptors slept. In the distance I heard the T.Rex growling. She has built her nest close to our pack. We might have to move because she is edging closer to our territory,she might chase us away. The rest of the pack is awake now and ready to patrol our area. Slasher our leader and my mate called everyone to patrol. While we were patroling the rex caught sight of us near her territory. She got angry and chased us. Slasher tried to fight but ended up with a sprained wrist. The rex chased us out of our territory now we had to travel to find a new home. We traveled for two days until we found an empty valley with a small lake where a heard of Parasaurolophus lived. We were very hungry after marking our territory. Slasher couldn't hunt because of his wrist so I took his place in the hunting group. We took down an old Parasaurolophus and brought it back to the pack. We all ate well and when the sun went down I curled up with Slasher under a tree and tended to his wounded wrist,I knew it would get better soon. Then we fell into a sound sleep under the stars dreaming of tomorrow.
