The Eight Deadliest Dinosaurs

The Jurassic World‘s primary villain is the genetically engineered Indomitus rex. This is one of the most terrifying dinosaurs. These eight dinosaurs are scarier because they actually did exist.



Spinosaurus Aegyptiacus

Recent research shows Spinosaurus is the largest carnivorous dinosaur species, with a length of over 50 feet. You wouldn’t be safe even in the water, Spinosaurus one of few known dinosaurs that can swim.



Velociraptor mongoliensis

Jurassic Park made Velociraptors famous, although they were smaller and slower than the movie, but still had a sharp, hook-like claw on the second finger. Modern research shows that this claw was used to prevent their victims from fleeing.



Tyrannosaurus rex

The “king of the Tyrant Lizards” will be remembered as one of the most dangerous and deadly dinosaurs. It has a bite force that is three times greater than a great white shark, making it the strongest land animal to ever have been bit.



Mapusaurus roseae

The enormous carnivorous dinosaur reached a length of more than 30 feet. Paleontologists found evidence that the predator hunted in groups.



Ankylosaurus magniventris

Although this dinosaur may not have been considered dangerous because it was a plant-eater and was therefore unlikely to be considered deadly, its armored tail could have been used as a defense mechanism. It could crush bones if it swings around its long tail.



Coelophysis buri

Don’t let size fool you. Coeplophysis weighed in at 44 pounds. However, fossil evidence suggests that they hunted in groups. They were agile and had blade-like cutting teeth.



Majungasaurus crenatissimus

Majungasaus is one of few known canibal dinosaurs. Their skull was unique among other theropods. They were able to kill their prey with a short, strong snout. This was similar to modern big cats.



Allosaurus

Allosaurus, one of the most dangerous dinosaurs in the Jurassic was a fearsome predator. Paleontologists discovered fossils of many other dinosaur species, including Stegosaurus.
