Ve­loci­rap­tors did hunt ‘like wolves’

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

Ve­loci­rap­tors re­ally did be­have like wolves and hunt down their prey in packs as de­picted in the movie Juras­sic Park, a top di­nosaur ex­pert has said.

In com­mon with other bird-like “rap­tor” di­nosaurs, they were highly in­tel­li­gent, ac­cord­ing to Dr Stephen Brusatte from the Univer­sity of Ed­in­burgh.

Ve­loci­rap­tors, which lived around 73 mil­lion years ago, were small, but vi­cious.

They mea­sured about seven foot long and weighed up to 15kg.
