How big was the velociraptor egg?

Velociraptors were dromaeosaurids, from asia, that were considerably smaller animals than the somewhat similar raptor dinosaurs like utaraptor or deinonychus from the American continent. There are different sized species among these relatively small raptors, and their eggs are very rare. Their eggs were elongate, as are the eggs of the somewhat closely related oviraptors; however, since velociraptors were mostly considerably smaller than oviraptors, their eggs were smaller. Velociraptor eggs would be from around 3 inches to 6 inches in length. Oviraptor eggs can be purchased in online bidding sites (like eBay)... and some being offered may even be eggs of velociraptors misidentified. Raptor and oviraptor eggs are going up in price... as imports from China (where many of them come from) have been terminated by the Chinese government.

What is the code for a velociraptor mount on World of Warcraft?

Currently there are 12 mounts in World of Warcraft that have Raptor in the title.

Some of them are no longer in the game as they were replaced by newer ones.

Some are bought at the troll mount vendor in Sen'Jin village in Durotar (for the horde only, must be exalted with trolls unless you are a troll).

The Swift Razzashi Raptor Drops off of Bloodlord Mandkir in Zul'Gurub.

The Venomhide Ravasaur (well, it looks like a raptor anyway) is a horde only quest that starts in Un'Goro near the entrance to the zone from Tanaris. It will take you a long time to get (minimum 20 days, no way around that) and requires a bit of gold (80), some cloth and leather and a short little quest chain.

What did velociraptors eat?

Actually velociraptors did not eat everything. It ate anything from small lizards to medium sized hadrosaurids (duckbills). Velociraptors would have had to avoid Tarbosaurus. Velociraptors also had great hunting ability, one of their great tactics was speed. They were fast movers because they didn't have to breath out. Their breath seeped in through their body and went into small pours in the bones which seeped out of the skin allowing Velociraptor to run at 40 mph. Velociraptors also had a 3 1/2 in long claw that was extended to 5 in with it's sheath. This claw may have been used for piercing the throat, rather than for disemboweling. This would be a much more lethal approach than any of today's raptors practice.

Another perspective:

Scientists believe that velociraptors were carnivores(meat eaters). They probably fed on: carrion (dead animals), kills that they could take away from other animals, and anything else that they could run down and kill.

Their diet must have consisted of a wide variety of animals because they really were very fast on their feet, had teeth that would have been very handy for holding and tearing, and they had a comparatively large, exaggerated claw (approximately 13cm), on each of their middle toes. These claws might have been used in piercing or ripping their prey and in self defense. There is also speculation that they may have hunted in packs, using cooperative techniques. If this is true, they could probably have preyed on animals significantly larger than themselves.

With some adjustments made for the differences in size and lack of flight ability, a comparison of the diets of owls and eagles (modern raptors), might inspire visions of what velociraptors ate. They may well have eaten mostly mammals (all very small then), reptiles, amphibians, and other dinosaurs, smaller and/or slower than themselves.

It should also be noted that: the actual animals, while they could still have ruined your day, were less imposing than what was depicted in the Movie, Jurassic Park. Further, the movie animals were not velociraptors at all, but of a totally different genus, probably modeled from Deinonychus. The real velociraptors (Velociraptor mongoliensis) sported feathers and were smaller and lighter (turkey size) than those depicted in the movie.
