Let’s list the top 10 coolest dinosaurs, of course, that’s in my opinion
1. Tyrannosaurus Rex
Because of the release of “Jurassic Park”, Tyrannosaurus Rex has become a familiar dinosaur. Tyrannosaurus Rex is the largest type of Tyrannosaurus rex, with a body length of 11.5-14.7 meters, a height of 4-6 meters, and the heaviest weight of 14.85 tons. Tyrannosaurus rex was at the top of the food chain in the late Cretaceous period, when all kinds of dinosaurs in North America were basically available for its prey, and they sometimes attacked long-necked herbivorous dinosaurs like Alamosaurus.
Velociraptor was a fast-running, two-legged (bipedal) dinosaur. Velociraptors may have been able to run up to roughly 40 mph (60 km/hr) for short bursts. Velociraptor was about 5 to 6 feet long (1.5-2 m), and 3 feet tall (1 m). It may have weighed about 15 to 33 pounds (7 to 15 kg). It had a stiff tail that worked as a counterbalance and let it make very quick turns.
Stegosaurus is a huge herbivorous dinosaur. It was a herbivorous animal that lived in the late Jurassic period. It had a row of huge bony plates on its back and a dangerous tail with four spikes for defense. Attack of predators, about 7-9 meters long, 2.35 meters to 3.5 meters high, 2 to 4 tons in weight.
The triceratops is one of the most famous dinosaurs and a very popular dinosaur in popular culture. The triceratops is a medium-sized quadruped dinosaur with a total length of 7-9 meters, a height of 2.4-2.8 meters, and a weight of 5-10 meters. Ton. They had very large head shields, and three horns, reminiscent of modern rhinos. The most distinctive features of Triceratops are their horns and neck shields. Their head shields can grow to over 1.5 meters. Triceratops had a horn above the nostrils on the snout; and a pair of horns above the eyes, over 80 cm. Behind the skull is a relatively short bony shield. Triceratops had short limbs, with five short toes on the front feet and four short toes on the back feet. Although Triceratops were definitely quadrupeds, their posture has long been debated. Triceratops’ forelimbs were originally thought to stretch out from the chest to the sides to help carry the weight of the head.
Spinosaurus, meaning “thorny lizard”, is a large theropod carnivore, of which the subspecies Spinosaurus is the largest known carnivorous dinosaur, with a body length of 12 to 20.7 meters and a hip height of 2.7 to 4 m., weighing 4 to 26 tons, and lived in North Africa in the middle of the Cretaceous period. The skull of Spinosaurus is 1.75 meters long, similar in shape to pliosaurs, and Spinosaurus is considered a semi-aquatic animal. A study of the oxygen isotopic composition of Spinosaurus teeth revealed that Spinosaurus was the only known swimming carnivorous dinosaur.
The hard armor behind Ankylosaurus is actually hardened skin, which has strong defense ability, but it is far from the turtle shell formed by bones and has limited effect on Tyrannosaurus with a bite force of more than ten metric tons. Other ankylosaurids also have their characteristics, such as heavily armored bodies and giant tail hammers. Its tail is very fragile, and the junction is only five centimeters wide. The upper body of the Ankylosaurus was covered with thick scales, with two rows of spines on its back and a pair of horns on top of its head. Ankylosaurus had a tail like a golf club. Its four legs are short, its neck is short, and its head is broad.
Brachiosaurus was one of the largest animals that ever lived on land, and one of the most famous dinosaurs of all. A huge herbivorous dinosaur of the late Jurassic period, whose name originally means “lizard with a head like a wrist”. A 25-meter-long adult Brachiosaurus can lift its head to 13 meters above the ground, which is equivalent to the height of a 4-story building. Not only the neck, but the whole body of the Brachiosaurus seems to be pursuing height. From the tail, hips, and shoulders to the neck, Brachiosaurus’ body is like a gradually rising slope, with its head hanging high in the air, looking down at the ground beneath its feet. Due to the relatively short hind limbs and tail, Brachiosaurus could not stand with hind limbs like Diplodocus – in fact, they did not need to. With their high head and neck, as long as their four legs stood firmly on the ground, they could eat high plants.
Dilophosaurus is a dinosaur that lived in the early Jurassic period, with a body length of about 6-7 meters and a slender body. Their heads have two irregularly shaped crowns that are approximately semi-elliptical or tomahawk-shaped, hence the name Dilophosaurus. Dilophosaurus has many small and sharp teeth; short forelimbs, long and stout hind limbs, walking with hind limbs, agile movements; long and powerful tail, which can keep the body balance when walking. Dilophosaurus’s body is relatively sturdy, with a tall skull, well-developed jawbone, a large mouth, and a mouth full of teeth like sharp small knives. to the prey, and then swallow the large pieces of meat into the belly. In addition, there are holes in the skull behind the eyes of the Dilophosaurus. These holes are used to better attach the muscles that affect the jawbone, so the force of the Dilophosaurus’s bite must be very powerful. Scientists speculate that Dilophosaurus may have been the most brutal and ferocious carnivore in the early Jurassic ecosystem.
Allosaurus is a medium-sized bipedal, predatory dinosaur with a body length of 8.5 meters, a maximum of 9.7 meters, a weight of 1.5 to 3 tons, and a maximum weight of 3.6 tons. It’s a familiar dinosaur that has become the carnivore that defined the Jurassic period, and a model for the carnivorous dinosaurs, the large theropods. Allosaurus was the most common large predator in the Morrison Formation of North America during this period and was at the top of the food chain. They probably fed on other large herbivorous dinosaurs, such as Ornithopods, Stegosaurids, and Sauropods.
Carnotaurus is a high-speed predator that is good at running. It is the fastest large dinosaur known to run at speeds of up to 60 kilometers per hour. In addition, the calf is thin, the head is high, the tail is thin, and the legs are extremely long. It is also known as the cheetah of the Cretaceous period. According to the only complete skeleton found, the carnotaurus was 8 meters long, weighed 7.5 tons, had a hip height of 3 meters, and weighed 2,300 kilograms. Carnotaurus has very long legs and is one of the carnivorous dinosaurs with the longest leg ratio. Among all carnivores, Carnotaurus may be only a little shorter than the dwarf tyrannosaurus of the same length.
These 10 kinds of dinosaurs are relatively well-known dinosaurs. Although large dinosaurs have become extinct, dinosaur-themed museums, parks, restaurants, amusement parks, etc. have a strong appeal to people.
