Velociraptor

Part of Hall of Saurischian Dinosaurs.

The long relatively flat fossil skull of a velociraptor shown from its left side. Its closed jaw shows upper and lower rows of sharp teeth.

Velociraptor was a fierce predator, as evidenced by the sharp teeth of this specimen.

With hollow bones and long legs, Velociraptor skimmed across the dunes chasing prey with sickle-shaped claws on its hands and feet and a mouth full of razor-sharp teeth. A large brain and eyes may have provided advanced sensory capabilities.
