About the Velociraptor
Velociraptor (/vÉ¨ËˆlÉ’sÉ¨rÃ¦ptÉ™r/; meaning "swift seizer") is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.Two species are currently recognized, although others have been assigned in the past. The type species is V. mongoliensis; fossils of this species have been discovered in Mongolia. A second species, V. osmolskae, was named in 2008 for skull material from Inner Mongolia, China.
Smaller than other dromaeosaurids like Deinonychus and Achillobator, Velociraptor nevertheless shared many of the same anatomical features. It was a bipedal, feathered carnivore with a long tail and an enlarged sickle-shaped claw on each hindfoot, which is thought to have been used to tackle prey. Velociraptor can be distinguished from other dromaeosaurids by its long and low skull, with an upturned snout.
Velociraptor (commonly shortened to "raptor") is one of the dinosaur genera most familiar to the general public due to its prominent role in the Jurassic Park motion picture series. In the films it was shown with anatomical inaccuracies, including being much larger than it was in reality and without feathers. Some of these inaccuracies, along with the head's larger dome in the movies may suggest that the dinosaurs in the movies were actually modeled on Deinonychus. Velociraptor is also well known to paleontologists, with over a dozen described fossil skeletons, the most of any dromaeosaurid. One particularly famous specimen preserves a Velociraptor locked in combat with a Protoceratops.
All our dinosaurs are brand new and manufactured by ourselves here in the UK. All they need is a new home and a name!
The pictured model is a 3mm brushed mild steel, it will rust/tarnish outdoors for that added dinosaur look and possibly indoors over time giving a great garden ornament colouring and style.
All our dinosaurs are packaged in air tight postage bags with silica gel, so will arrive still nice and bright. If you want to maintain that look then there are a lot of clear lacquerers and finishes you can apply to the steal to achieve that.
We can also supply this dinosaur in Stainless steel at either 1.5mm or 3.0mm, materials and construction costs are higher with these versions however. They won't rust though.
We also stock many other models, and kits, if you can't find what you want please just drop us a message and we will almost certainly be able to supply it for you in the material and size of your choice within 4-5 days.
