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.
