    Learning with Wikis
    Hi there Ms Cassidy and Students,

    I really enjoyed reading your wiki about Dinosaurs and I hope that you learned a lot of information. It was good to see that students from other countries also joined in your wiki.

    I see that you had to close this wiki, but I hope that you will start another one soon. I look forward to collaborating with you in cyber space.

    bye for now

    Velociraptor
    ('swift thief', 'swift plunderer' or 'swift bird of prey')
    The velociraptor was a small dinosaur!! It ate meat. The fossils were found in Central Asia. They hunted in packs. It was 2 feet tall, 6 feet in length and 30 pounds in weight. It had more killing power than almost any other dinosaur of its weight. They were very intelligent.
    Velociraptor had approximately 80 conical, curved teeth, with long, flattened snout. Its teeth measured about 2.5 centimeter long. Its head was approximately 18 centimeters long. Its neck was S-shaped. This dinosaur had long, slender legs with four-toed clawed feet. Its arms had three clawed fingers.
    Velociraptor was known to have existed during the late cretaceous period, approximately 80 to 85 million years ago. It was believed to have inhabited warm, arid environments, almost desert-like with rivers or streams.
    The Velociraptor was between 5 to 6 feet long, and about 2.5 to 3 feet tall. It
    weighed around 15 to 40 pounds (weights of dinosaurs are very hard to estimate).
    Physical Description:
    The Velociraptor had an s-shaped neck, two arms that
    had claws with three fingers on each hand, and long thin legs with claws that
    had four toes on each foot. It's mouth had sharp, curved teeth and it had a
    really flat long mouth and nose,and a long stiff tail.

    Diplodocus
    ('double beamed')
    It has a long neck and a long tail and it has five toes on each foot. It has a long neck. Diplodocus are quadrupeds meaning they stand on all four legs. The dinosaur walked on four legs.

    Diplodocus was one of the largest dinosaurs ever discovered.

    of the bbackbone. It had slender limbs and hind legs, longer than the
    front legs; it gave him access to both low and high growing plants. It was a
    quadrupedal, it moved slowly on four column-like legs. All legs had five-toed
    (like elephant); one toe on each foot had a thumb claw, probably for
    protection.

    In 1838, William Estaugh Hopkins was digging in a marl pit when he exposed large bones. He had the bones on show at his home, Birdwood in Haddonfield, New Jersey. In 1858 these bones sparked the attention of a visitor, William Parker Foulke. The skeleton was dug out from the marl pit in 1858 by Foulke. In the same year, the species was named by paleontologist Joseph Leidy in the same year, from an approximately complete set of limbs, along with a pelvis, several parts of the feet, twenty-eight vertebrae (including eighteen from the tail), eight teeth and two small parts of the jaw. Leidy recognized that these bones were from a dinosaur by their resemblance to those of the **Iguanadon**, exposed in England some decades before, but the skeleton of Hadrosaurus was far more entire and was at the time the most complete dinosaur skeleton known. Leidy's monograph Cretaceous Reptiles of the United States, telling Hadrosaurus more completely and with illustrations, was written in 1860 but the American Civil War postponed its publication until 1865. Leidy reconstructed Hadrosaurus as a biped, in contrast to the view at the time that such dinosaurs were quadrupedal. The entire skeleton was entirely assembled in 1868 by a team including English sculptor and naturalist Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins and was put on show at Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, where it remains available for public viewing.Despite the fact that the family Hadrosauridae is named after this genus, there is no skull known. The skeleton is indistinguishable from that of other hadrosaurins.
