Velociraptors lived during the Late Cretaceous period, about 80 - 85 million years ago. This was only 15 million years before the dinosaurs became extinct.

Fun Fact:Velociraptor is one of the most bird-like dinosaurs ever discovered. It was small and fast, and the sickle-shaped claw on the second toe of each foot made it a formidable predator. A special bone in its wrist allowed it to swivel its wrist sideways in a flapping motion and to fold its arm against its body like a bird. This motion allowed it to snap its arms forward to grab fleeing prey and is an important part of the flight stroke in modern birds.

Velociraptor was also a scavenger, because of bite marks from it found on a Protoceratops skeleton.

Velociraptor lived in Asia. Fossils have been found in Russia, China and Mongolia. They lived in a place that was hot and covered by sand dunes. There were streams of water close to where some fossils have been found.

As pack hunters, the Velociraptor may have had some social structure within their pack similar to other animal species that hunt in packs.

Like all dinosaurs, baby Velociraptors hatched from eggs. The babies were fed and looked after by the adults for some period after hatching. Based on other deinonychosaurs,Velociraptor was probably precocial, meaning that, even if it had parental care, it was capable of moving around and finding it's own food very early on it's lifetime.
