One of my son's favorite dinosaurs!
Our Plastic Velociraptor
Remember the scary (and fast!) velociraptors in Steven Spielberg's "Jurassic Park"? Bring a slice of the movie home to your own house, school, or dinosaur collection. Made of hard plastic, this fierce-looking velociraptor will add color and flash to your diorama, school project, or collection. This dinosaur is part of Safari, Ltd's famous museum-quality "Carnegie Collection" of prehistoric life. Its details are great for teaching youngsters about extinct animals or just for your own enjoyment. Priced affordably, the velociraptor can also be used as a toy, novelty, party or theme decor, etc. It measures 7 1/4 inches from teeth to tail.
About the Velociraptors
The velociraptor, or "speedy raider," lived in the Cretaceous period in what is now Mongolia. It was a two-legged, feathered carnivore with a long, stiffened tail and an enlarged sickle-shaped claw on each hindfoot, which is thought to have been used to kill its prey. The velociraptor was popularized in the movie Jurassic Park, but it was made much larger and without feathers. The velociraptor was really only the size of a turkey, but nontheless ferocious.
