Velociraptor was a carnivorous Theropod that lived around 85 to 80 million years ago during the mid Cretaceous period. Like other raptors Velociraptor had a large 9cm long retractable sickle claw on the second toe of each foot. Velociraptor's brain was big for its body suggesting that it was probably about as intelligent as a modern bird. It's possible that Velociraptor hunted in packs.

Velociraptor fossils have been found in Mongolia, Russia, and China. Velociraptor was named in 1924 by H. F. Osborn. Velociraptor means "speedy thief".
