Velociraptors: Everything You Thought You Knew Is Wrong

You probably bought into the conventional wisdom that Velociraptors liked to lurk in the underbrush so they could leap out and disembowel you with their razor sharp sickle-shaped claws while hopping on one leg.

Wrong! Scientists now believe that Velociraptors used those claws like organic crampons to climb trees and leap on their victims from above.

Stay tuned for later updates, when scientists will reveal that they now think that Velociraptors used their mad tree-climbing skillz only to sneak up on Pterodactyl, Pterosaur and Pteranodon nests to devour their young.
