Raptor teeth

These raptor teeth are about 1/2 inch long. They come from Morocco. Velociraptors were a kind of dinosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous Period from about 75 to 71 million years ago. Raptors were theropods that belonged to the family called dromaeosaurids. The name Velociraptor means swift seiser. This is an appropriate name for this dinosaur because they were quick and agile hunters. They were feathered carnivores. They had long stiff tails that helped them to balance when running. Raptors had a large claw on each hind foot that was probably for attacking its prey.More about Raptors
