Description:

You've probably seen Velociraptors in the movies. If so, you might have seen them do things like open doors, communicate to each other in complex bird-like calls, and outsmart some unlucky humans. You might even be thinking twice about including Velociraptors in your dinosaur zoo. After all, you'd like to remain as the one in charge, right?

Fortunately, Velociraptors were quite smart, but only in comparison to other dinosaurs of the time. In modern terms, their intelligence has been compared to that of an ostrich or a chicken. That doesn't mean you'll be serving Raptor Nuggets at your food stands any time soon though. These dinosaurs run up to 40 miles per hour in short bursts, can make impressive leaps, have 80 teeth up to an inch long, and possess a four-inch retractable claw on each foot of their powerful hind legs. These armaments are powerful tools for ripping and tearing at the throats and abdomens of their prey.

Velociraptors first lived during the late Cretaceous period around 80 million years ago. Today they thrive in forests of Dawn Redwoods. Rocks or underbrush in the vicinity of a watering hole make a perfect spot for Velociraptor to lie in ambush of prey.

A typical Velociraptor was around 6 feet long from nose to tail, weighed anywhere from 20-35 pounds, and stood at about three feet high. The much bigger dinosaurs depicted in movies are actually closer to the dimensions of a cousin to Velociraptor named Deinonhychus. Velociraptors walk on their two hind legs, and use their smaller front legs for grasping.

Although Velociraptors are not the giants of their environment, their tactics of hunting together in pairs or small packs allows them to bring down much larger prey than they could manage as individuals. Make sure you don't have too many Velociraptors in too small of an area, however, as there is evidence they may turn to cannibalism. Velociraptors' high birth rate as egg-layers means you'll have to keep on top of things.
