Velociraptor is most known for its appearance in the Jurassic Park movies, where it is depicted as being a big predatory dinosaur. In reality velociraptor was about the size of a turkey, and has feathers on its body and arms. They lived in the area that today is Mongolia and China at the end of the cretaceous period, about 75-71 million years ago.
Scientists believe that velociraptor was an intelligent and skilled hunter, and that they hunted in packs. One of the most spectacular fossils found of velociraptor shows it fighting with a protoceratops.
