About Velociraptor
Velociraptor is probably one of the most famous dinosaurs that has ever lived. It achieved this fame because of a movie in the early 1990s titled "Jurassic Park." In this movie, Velociraptor's size was increased to make it seem more scary. At the time, Velociraptor's larger cousin, Utahraptor, had not yet been discovered. Utahraptor is much larger than Velociraptor.

Velociraptor's tail was made of hard, fused bones that made it very inflexible. While not useful as a weapon, Velociraptor's tail was very important in keeping the animal balanced as it hunted, ran and jumped.

Many scientists believe that Velociraptor may have balanced on its powerful tail as it swung its hind feet forward to slice into the sides of larger plant-eating animals.
