Robot raptor

Bill Oddie and Dr Phil Manning of the Museum of Manchester test the functions and abilities of a working mechanical model of a Velociraptor's leg and claw. The model has been built by special effects experts Dave Payne and John Pennicott. The claw proves able to cut skin, but not to penetrate muscle. Thus Velociraptor's reputation for disembowelling prey is disproved.
