Family Dromeosauridae Species V. mongoliensis V. osmolskae Time period 80 million years ago Located in Gobi Desert Diet meat
is a genus of dromaeosaurid that lived approximately 75-71 million years ago, in the Campanion-Maastrichtian stages of the Late Cretaceous period. It appeared as a major species in Velociraptor . In the documentary, it is incorrectly shown as living 80 million years ago.
In the show there are a total of 8
Velociraptors: , White Tip , Blue Brow , 2 Female raptors, and 3 raptor chicks.
Velociraptors were living five million years earlier than they actually did. Evidence of
Velociraptors being a pack-hunter is extremely limited.
Velociraptor couldn't have had its hands facing downwards without painfully breaking them. Velociraptor weighed 33 pounds, not 100 pounds as stated.
The genus was given a tad of sexual dimorphism: females made white, males made grey and blue.
Velociraptor from Jurassic Park had a cameo in the first episode, before morphing into one shown in this series. Today it is believed
Velociraptor was nocturnal or crepuscular, which is common in desert-animals. The sounds used for the calls of the
Velociraptor chicks are squeaks and calls of Guinea Pigs. The sounds for the Velociraptor are re-used Dromaeosaur sound effects from When Dinosaurs Roamed America.
