If "Jurassic Park" taught me anything, it's that Velociraptors are terrifyingly awesome. So hearing Sam Neil give that classic speech brings me right back to that fascination. And the terror. Don't forget the terror. [This Is Colossal]
Well the reality is that velociraptors weren't 6 foot turkeys, they were just turkeys. Feathers and (primitive, non-flight) wings and everything, as well as the size of them. Oh, and they might not have used those claws for much clawing, but possibly for climbing trees as they might have been mostly tree-dwelling creatures. But I'm guessing most people know by now that the JP raptors were closer to deinonychus than velociraptor.
