After reading some facts on these 'raptors' as they are commonly known, that video is misleading about the size and appearance of Velociraptor's. They are much smaller than depicted in the youtube video. (I still think the performace is awesome though). These guys were also in Jurassic Park where their size/appearance was also depicted incorrectly. Velociraptor's are feathered dinosaurs.

Velociraptor facts:
Existed approximately 75 to 71 million years ago
from the genus of 'dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur'
Velociraptor was bipedal
Velociraptor was a feathered carnivore
'raptor' is short for Velociraptor
length: adults measuring up to 2.07 m (6.8 ft)
height: adults 0.5 m (1.6 ft) high at the hip
skulls size: upto 25 cm (9.8 in) long
