Paleontologists haven’t really found many of its remains but the snout and jaw fragments were enough to know that Oxalaia was a giant member of predatory dinosaurs known as spinosaurs. This creature was a carnivorous theropod that is believed to have lived during the Cretaceous period about 95 million years ago!!
Like most of these dinosaurs, the pronunciation is tricky but bear with me!!!
This dinosaur was once thought to have the longest skull of all the theropods, the honor which later got transferred to the Giganotosaurus.
This big guy is believed to have been a fearsome predator. It fed mostly on humongous herbivores which it would attack with its powerful jaws and talons. It is thought to have existed some 92 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period. It’s fossil remains have been found in what is now Mongolia in Asia. This little-known theropod dinosaur was also featured in a Japanese picture book series “You are Umasou.”
The name of this dinosaur means “Tyrant Titan” and it was discovered in Argentina. It is classified as part of the genus that includes the likes of other giant theropods such as the Mapu-saurus. It was believed to have lived during the primary Cretaceous period on the South American terrains.
You might be more familiar with this dinosaur than you think, especially if you live in North America. Dinosaur Valley State Park in Glen Rose, Texas has tons of fossilized tracks. Most of the footprints probably belonged to the Acrocanthosaurus.
Also known as the “lizard-eating master”, this dino lived and hunted in North America during the late Jurassic period some 150 million years ago. A few animal remains were discovered during the early 1930s in Oklahoma and New Mexico. The animal lived in the woodlands but their remains are pretty rare.
The Mapusaurus is one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs to be discovered. It is ranked at number four, still a little bit away from the spinosaurus – which still wears the crown.
It had knife-like teeth for slicing off chunks of flesh and may have even worked in groups to take down even larger prey like the Argentinosaurus. It was about 10 meters long and weighed about 3 tons!!
3. Tyrannosaurus Rex
Perhaps the most famous dinosaur on earth and featured in all of the Jurassic Park movies, this mighty beast lived in western North America some 68 million years ago.
It had short little arms and could sprint at a top speed of 25 mph. It was about 12 meters (40 feet) long and about 5 meters (20 feet) tall, give or take and weighed up to 20,000 pounds!!
This dinosaur was an absolute beast, no matter how fearsome the T-Rex might have been! The Giganotosaurus was big, strong, and fast. They lived about 98 million years ago during the late Cretaceous Period. However, there’s one thing you should remember! A Giganotosaurus should not be mistaken for a Gigantosaurus, which is a lesser known herbivore that lived in England.
All hail the mighty Spinosaurus! This was the largest carnivorous theropod to ever live on the planet. The animal haunted the swamps of the North African continent during the mid-Cretaceous period about a 112 to 97 million years ago. Two species of Spinosaurus have been reported and named after places they were discovered
