Velociraptor mongoliensis surveys its desert habitat from atop some rocky outcroppings under a blazing sun.
I've always loved how Velociraptor's name rolls off the tongue so beautifully, but honestly it's disappointing as far as dinosaurs go. Feathered or not, it never did resemble the pack-hunting man-sized monsters my generation knew from movies and other media during our childhoods. On the other hand, we have caught it in the middle of a fossilized fight with a Protoceratops, so it might have still been quite fierce for its dog-like size.
