Growing up saurous

When I grow up I am going to be a velociraptor.

I will huff and puff and shed these keratinous plates, refolding reptilian origami forms into which I will curl myself and sleep.

I will retract all these legs and burst from my chrysalis with a mighty claw, fast and sleek and deadly!

When I wake, I will be a velociraptor.
