a small but mighty dinosaur
When you think about the Velociraptor you have probably got a good picture in your mind as to what a Velociraptor looks like…right? Unless you have been sleeping under a rock for the last 10-15 Years, we have all seen how the Velociraptor is portrayed in the Jurassic Park films. A lean, mean killing machine hunting in packs taking out anything that moves. Well, we are sorry to be the bearer of bad news, Velociraptor did not actually look like they did in the movies… sorry.
The Velociraptor you have seen on the big screen is based on the lesser famous Deinonychus. If you would like to read more about Deinonychus that inspired the terrifying look of the Velociraptor you can here.
Let’s dive in and go into a little more detail about Velociraptor, probably one of the most popular (but greatly misrepresented) dinosaurs.
