The Swift Killer's Head by Qilong The Swift Killer's Head by Qilong
Here is the full depiction of my stippled skull for Velociraptor mongoliensis. This skull is not based on any particular skull, but a large array of them, and thus represents a complex rather than a particular morphology.

So what can we tell, in simple English, about the Swift Killer by looking at a complete skull of it?

It looked like a sleek monitor lizard head. Also, very narrow.

Any indication of senses?  Diet?

You have to look deeper into the skull than the surface here for that. The size of the olfactory bulbs, optic bulb and size of the optic forament through which cranial nerve II (optic) passes, and the size of the flocculus and length of the inner ear canal are all good indicators but for Velociraptor no good data exists. Similar, related animals, suggest these are pretty normal for a terrestrial hunter.
