This dinosaur had a retractable, sickle-shaped claw on the middle toe of each foot that was as long as a golf pencil.

Velociraptors were very intelligent dinosaurs who hunted in packs. Even though they stood just two feet tall, these meat-eaters took down much larger prey. These dinosaurs could run up to forty miles per hour and make quick turns thanks to their stiff tail. To eat their prey, velociraptors had eighty sharp, curved teeth in their flat snout, some of which were about an inch long. Known as one of the smartest and fastest dinosaurs, the velociraptor was a dinosaur who got its way.
