Publication History


Velociraptor was a small, slender dinosaur that stood just three feet tall and weighed as much as an average dog. However, it had lethal claws and one of the highest brain-to-body weight ratios of any dinosaur. These and other features of its skeletal remains show it was an agile and aggressive predator.
