Velociraptor, meaning 'swift seizer' in Latin, is a genus of Dromaeosauridae, a dinosaur that lived approximately 71 to 75 million years ago, during the latter part of the Cretaceous Period. It is known for its distinctive feet, each armed with one over-sized, hooked claw.
Note the prominent blood groove along the sides, these grooves aided this powerful theropod to more quickly and easily rip apart its prey. Based on the latest paleontological research, many Velociraptors had feathers, giving them the appearance of a vicious, primordial turkey.
