Velociraptors are enemies in the Tomb Raider series. They are two-legged red dinosaurs and are the same size as Lara. Velociraptors often appear in groups of two or three at a time and can be overwhelming if you are not prepared for them. They appear in Tomb Raider, Tomb Raider III and Tomb Raider: Anniversary.
Raptors are really fast and can quickly cause a lot of damage by biting and tackling Lara. The ledge method is the safest way to dispose of them, but if this method isn't possible it is best to use a powerful, close-range weapon such as the Shotgun or the Desert Eagle to quickly dispatch them.
