Velociraptors were night hunters, fossil study finds

Jurassic Park may have been right – scientists have revealed that predators like velociraptors may have hunted at night.

A study of eye sockets in the fossil skulls of dinosaurs can reveal whether the creatures were active by day or night.

It reveals big plant-eating dinosaurs ate in the day but velociraptors and other small carnivorous dinosaurs were night hunters, according to the research by the University of California published in the journal Science.
