Velociraptor Chasing Small Mammal


Badge Awards


In 1971, fossils of a velociraptor and a protoceratops were found locked in combat. Aside from that though there is no direct evidence as to what velociraptors ate. Jurassic Park gets it wrong and depicts them way too big. It is not unreasonable to assume, though, that this turkey-sized dinosaur snacked on rat sized mammals of the day. Whether they did or not, it makes for a fun bit of paleoart.

The usual disclaimer about my paleoart: When it comes to paleoart, the images I create favor 'art' more than 'paleo'. While I try my best to depict animals as accurately as possible, I'm make no claim that they 100% scientifically accurate. The same goes for the environment I depict them in. I am primarily interested in creating aesthetically pleasing images. Scientific accuracy comes second.
