We all loved Jurassic Park, the Sci-Fi, and adventure movie. The most awaited Jurassic World is finally releasing next week. The 4th sequel of Jurassic Park is all set to make you excited, thrilled and of course entertain you the fullest. Exactly 22 years after the Jurassic Park, you will get to see the scary dinosaurs rolling around the screen.
Dinosaurs were first appeared 231.4 million years ago and the major groups extinct approximately 66 million years ago. Our life would never be alive if the dinosaurs would be living till now. We love to see them on screens only. While talking about them, you might be interested in knowing their breeds.
Majungasaurus existed in Madagascar around 70 million years ago. This medium-sized theropod was around 7 meters long and weighed 1 ton. The scary skull, jaw, and teeth make it a vicious killer. Although it is hard to quote their actual details, the studies show that Majungasaurus had very short forelimbs while the hindlimbs were long and stocky.
Giganotosaurus or the giant southern lizard existed approximately some 99 million years ago. It's slender and an elongated skull is large, estimated 5 feet in length. Though some authors claimed the length to be up to 5.9 feet. It weighs 8 to 10 ton. It is one of the biggest known carnivores ever on earth and the most dangerous dinosaur as well.
Utahraptors had down-coated green skin. They were approximately 6 to 7 feet high and 8 feet long. They had large curved claws on the second toes which make them a dangerous hunter. Jim Jensen found the first specimens of Utahraptor in east-central Utah in 1975.
One of the most dangerous dinosaur to walk or swim on the earth. Spinosaurus existed about 112 to 97 million years ago in North Africa. A narrow skull full of conical teeth is the most threatening part of Spinosaurus. They are the first identified swimming dinosaurs which spent most of the time in and around rivers. They were among the largest carnivorous dinosaur breeds.
They are also known as the king of the dinosaurs. T. Rex dinosaurs are one of the largest land carnivores ever. They were 40 feet high and had 5 to 8-ton bulky head and long heavy tail. They thrived in western North America, around 68 to 66 million years ago. Till now, more than 50 specimens of T. Rex are identified.
These are called 'Lizard of Kronos' which were named after the Greek leader Cronus. They are actually Mesozoic marine reptiles but are included under the category of the dinosaur. They belong to the family of Pliosauridae which are 13 meters long having an elongated head, short neck and flipped body. They had 3 meters lengthy jaws and teeth up to 6 inches long and could grab victims so fast. The fossils of Kronosaurus were discovered in Australia.
Carnivorous Ankylosaurus (meaning fused lizard) lived in western North America during Cretaceous Period. Their body measured 9 meters and weighed over 6 tons. They are considered having a highly armored body and enormous bony tail. They had a perfect defense and attack.
Acrocanthosaurus (also called high-spined lizard) existed in North American land its fossils are found in Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming. It was a bipedal predator which had only a single species. These dinosaurs are known for the high neural spine and are known as largest theropods ever. The giant body of around 38 feet and weight 7 tons make them the dangerous creature existed on earth.
Albertosaurus lived around 70 million years ago in western North America. It is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur. They were comparatively smaller than other dinosaurs but had dozens of big sharp teeth with a giant head. These fearsome predators were ridiculously the scariest hunter.
The deadly serration makes them the most dangerous animal. Carcharodontosaurus lived about 100 million years ago. They are listed in the most longest and heaviest dinosaur breeds. They were more than 40 feet long and weighed around 15 metric tons.
