The Velociraptor may have been able to run up to roughly 40 mph (60 km/hr) for short bursts. This predator may have hunted in packs. It roamed the Earth about 85.8 million to 70.6 million years ago during the end of the Cretaceous Period. It had 13 to 15 teeth in its upper jaw and 14 to 15 teeth in its lower jaw. These teeth were widely spaced and serrated, though more strongly on the back edge than the front. It was a carnivore that hunted and scavenged for food. It spent the vast majority of the time eating small things which likely included reptiles, amphibians, insects, small dinosaurs, mammals and more like this. Velociraptor fossils have been found in the Gobi Desert, which covers southern Mongolia and parts of northern China.
