Size Comparison
•The Velociraptor was a combat dinosaur. It attacked its prey with sharp teeth and long claws quickly when they died. There is evidence to suggest it was a pack hunter and therefore nested in packs. Velociraptor was probably warm blooded and hunted with extreme similarity to modern birds. It would have had to be constantly fighting but during mating season male velociraptors would call to females and battle with other males. Their lifestyle was harsh.
Velociraptor mean "swift thief"
•Velociraptors were carnivores (meat eaters). They were scavengers and often fed on dead animals and kills they could take from other dinosaurs.They ate anything else they could run down and kill. Because of their extreme speed and teeth they had a varied diet. Nothing has been scientifically proven yet as to whether they were pack or solo hunters
Name & Diet
•Velociraptors lived 71 to 75 million years ago during the later Cretaceous Period.
There are many theories around dinosaurs extinction such as asteroid, disease, climate change and ice age theory. My theory is that dinosaurs became extinct by major volcanic activity. A huge increase in volcanic activity around 65 millions years ago may have pumped so much ash into the air that it blocked out the sun killing the dinosaurs and its ancient environment.

Time & Extinction
Velociraptors lived in a desert environment that had some rivers, trees, and shrubs. Velociraptor fossils have been found in the Gobi Desert which covers Southern Mongolia and some of Northern China. However archeologists believe they were found all over the world.
