  1. Velociraptor was a mid-sized dromaeosaurid, with adults measuring up to 2.07 m (6.8 ft) long, 0.5 m (1.6 ft) high at the hip, and weighing up to 15 kg (33 lb), though there is a higher estimate of 19.7 kg (43 lb).

  2. Correct! I’m pretty sure the Raptors you see in the movies were inspired by the Achillobator or the Utahraptor.
