There isn’t too much I love more than random celebrations. National Cookie Day, National Pie Day, National Pet Day, National Wear Pajamas Day. Whatever it is, I'll take it.

It’s particularly relevant because Jurassic Park 3D was released earlier this month and a fourth film will come out sometime next year. Here are a few reasons why Velociraptors are so awesome* (mixed with some Jurassic Park gifs since that's where I get all my information from) to raise our awareness of the majorly under-appreciated dinosaurs!
