History

Velociraptor was discovered in 1923, and is particularly well known for the large, curved claw on each of its feet, a feature it shared with other dromaeosaurs like Microraptor. It was once believed that this claw was used for slashing at prey, though recent studies indicate it may have been more useful for gripping and holding onto its intended victims.
