2. A Meat Eater

Looking at the teeth, paleontologists who study fossils are confident that the velociraptor was a meat eater. It is important to understand that without a time machine, everything scientists say about dinosaurs like the velociraptors is a theory. We have not found a fossil of a velociraptor eating another animal, so instead, we have to look at the evidence available. The teeth of velociraptors were long, sharp and had jagged edges like a serrated knife. Modern animals like lions have similar teeth, so scientists are confident that the velociraptor was a carnivore.
