Deinocheirus Mirificus - Its back was topped with long spines that supported a sail-like structure whose function remains enigmatic. It had fused tail vertebrae to support tail feathers. Thriving in an river region, it was an omnivore, eating fish and plants with a beaked, toothless snout that flared out to the sides like the herbivorous duckbilled dinosaurs. It had broad feet with toes ending in squared-off hooves that may have helped it stand on wet ground.
Carcharodontosaurus Dinosaur Fossils Tooth Teeth Claws
Carcharodontosaurus: Carcharodontosaurus is a monstrous meat-eating Theropod dinosaur and considered larger than T-Rex. In fact, it is often called the African T-Rex, although there is no relation. The name means “Shark Tooth Lizard” and Carcharodon, from the Greek, is the shark genus with similar teeth. It was 36-45 feet (12M) long and about 6-8 tons in weight and it may have been nearly 17 feet tall. The skull was 6 feet in length (Morocco, Algeria, Egypt, Libya, Niger, and Tunisia).
LIOPLEURODON was the biggest plesiosaur. Liopleurodon was not a dinosaur, but a short-necked plesiosaur (a pliosaur), an extinct, swimming reptile. It lived during the late Jurassic period in Europe and Eastern Europe. It was a carnivore which ate fish,ichthyosaurs, and other plesiosaurs. 39 to 49 feet (12-15 m) long. It had a long body with a large head, a short neck, powerful jaws and teeth, and four long, wide, paddle-like flippers. The skull was 10 feet (3 m) long.
Sauropods were the true giants of the dinosaur family, some species attaining lengths of over 100 feet and weights of over 100 tons. Most sauropods were characterized by their extremely long necks and tails and thick, squat bodies; they were the dominant herbivores of the Jurassic period, though an armored branch (known as the titanosaurs) flourished during the Cretaceous. Among the most well-known sauropods were Brachiosaurus, Apatosaurus and Argentinosaurus.
