Our Velociraptor Skeleton Model
This realistic-looking velociraptor skeleton model is made of strong plastic and is sturdy when assembled. It is 9 1/2 inches long and 6 1/2 inches tall. There are about 10 separate pieces, some large, with easy to follow assembly instructions and a diagram. The bones look weathered and connect with one another through pegs or joint sockets. Although most pieces hold together well, it may help to use a little super glue. This miniature velociraptor skeleton replica makes a nice display, a gift, or toy for children or adults and could work well for school show-and-tell or as a school science project.

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.
