Hooked and chewed

Although Velociraptor's claw is primarily a stabbing weapon, it can also be used to attach the dinosaur to its prey. With smaller prey, a Velociraptor claw can puncture an artery or windpipe. With larger dinosaurs, it's a bit trickier. The Velociraptor team must jump on their victim and cling on with their long claws while they chew with their teeth and scratch with their hands, until the unfortunate prey collapses and dies.
