Completing the Velociraptor in City Folk
"...Hoo my goodness! The velociraptor is assembled! Simply magnificent! Velociraptors first began to appear in the last days of the dinosaurs. Their bodies were small, but they could run fast and were smart enough to use teamwork... In some respects, they were the best hunters in the dinosaur world!"
In Real Life
Velociraptor was a small theropod dinosaur that lived in modern-day Mongolia during the Late Cretaceous, 75 to 71 million years ago. It is a member of the family Dromaeosauridae, all of which were feathered and bipedal, as well as one of the closest relatives of living birds. While they were popularized by the Jurassic Park series, the dinosaurs in the film were actually based off the much larger Deinonychus. In real life, Velociraptor was about the size of a turkey, weighing 15 kg and reaching a length of about 2 meters (half of which is its tail) and a height of 0.5m at the hip. Recent studies suggest that it hunted like modern birds of prey: it would pin down its prey with its sickle claws — possibly flapping its wings to keep stable — and then eat the captured animal alive.
