The Raptor Dinosaur was a Theropod Dinosaur that was extremely fast, agile and was built like a bird. They were part of the Dromaeosauridae Family meaning “running lizards”. Their size was medium to small and it ranged from a few feet to 20 feet (6M) long.
They were from the Cretaceous Period about 110-66 Million Years ago and lived on most continents.
Many Raptor teeth come from the Kem Kem Basin, in Morocco, in North Africa. These predatory teeth are serrated on both edges of the tooth.
These dinosaur predators had forward looking eyes for hunting, three long fingers on each of their large hands, and a sickle-like claw on the second toe of its foot.
They may have hunted in packs, running down other dinosaurs several times larger than themselves. Their rigid tails balanced out their weight and gave them the ability to change direction rapidly. These prehistoric animals could have reached speeds of 40 mph (60m/h) in short distances.
They have made their fame known through the movie Jurassic Park, were Velociraptor was one of the many stars.
