Velociraptors had a retractable and sickle-shaped 7.5 centimeter claw at the middle-toe of each foot.
Velociraptors were probably very intelligent predators that hunted in packs. Although they only stood 60 centimeters tall, these carnivores were able to overpower prey animals considerably larger than themselves. These dinosaurs could run up to 65 kilometers per hour and due to their stiff tail they were able to accomplish fast turns. To eat their prey, Velociraptors had eighty sharp and curved-back teeth in their snout, some of them 2.5 centimeters long. The Velociraptor is considered one of the most intelligent and fastest dinosaurs: a cunning hunter.
