Any dinosaur fans out there are definitely familiar with the Velociraptor, one of the meanest prehistoric carnivores around. We also all remember those nail biting Jurassic Park scenes in which the Velociraptor made an appearance. Well, recently discovered in Mongolia is eerie proof of their existence: a 71-75 million-year-old Velociraptor Claw from the Cretaceous Period.

Velociraptors were a mid-sized dinosaur, with adults measuring up to 7 feet in length by about 2 feet high. Their distinctive claws were used as a slashing weapon, used to catch and kill prey. The Velociraptor is also said to have been nocturnal, hunting its prey under the cover of darkness. These were raw and ruthless creatures, often consuming captured prey while it was still alive. They roamed across what is now Mongolia during the last segment of the Mesozoic Era eventually meeting their demise from the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. As for getting your hands on this piece of Jurassic history, it’s priced at $12,500 but has already been reserved by a collector. [Purchase]
