What about taking home a Velociraptor? You must admit it would be an adventure! Then again, maybe you'd better stick with this super-detailed Schleich Dinosaur Velociraptor Collectible Figure. It measures approximately 7 1/10-inches long x 4-inches tall and is a whole lot less dangerous!
This two-legged carnivore was small for a dinosaur, measuring up to about 7-feet long x 1 1/2-feet tall at the hip. Velociraptors were probably very intelligent dinosaurs that hunted in packs. Although small, they were able to overpower significantly larger prey. These dinosaurs reached speeds of up to 65 kilometers an hour (40 miles per hour) and were capable of quick turns, thanks to their stiff tails. To consume their prey, Velociraptors had at their disposal 80 sharp, crooked teeth in their flat snout. The velociraptor is considered to have been one of the most intelligent and fastest dinosaurs, and a formidable hunter.
