Velociraptor was a small carnivorous biped. His name means "agile thief". The Velociraptor possessed powerful jaws. It measured 6 feet long for a height of 4 feet, and a weight of 35 pounds. He was armed with a very effective weapon: one of his toes had a huge claw. His tail helped him to balance himself when he stood up to stab his prey. The Velociraptor was not very big, but it was a smart and fast runner!
