Top Ten Best Dinosaurs


The Top Ten

1 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur.

Why is that stick-nose overrated bastard number one? Tyrannosaurus is not only stronger than it, he is also hunter while Spinosaurus eats fish. A lot of scientists now agree with the fact that T-Rex was a hunter. Come on people, get T-Rex back at number one!

I believe with all the facts of science that the Tyrannosaurus Rex is what most people think of when someone says ultimate predator. The Tyrannosaurus has all the reasons for it to be a predator. First, the size infers that it is a hunter. Why would it need its huge size to be a scavenger? To scare off other scavengers? I think not. Why? Because it is the only meat eater this big to be able to fight the prey that is living in the same region. Why would Triceratops need its horns? Why did Ankylosaurus need its tail club? Because another mystery super predator that hasn't been discovered yet might be there? Probably not. Why? Because first, a Tyrannosaur's jaws aren't designed that way. Also, there is evidence of a Tyrannosaurus hunting a Triceratops. All of that determines the Rex the staple of the dinosaurs, and the best, in my opinion. Happy Reading!

This is definitely the best dinosaur there is. It had a strong bite force, it had a lot of muscles, and it had some pretty good eyesight. It could also take down some big dinosaurs. Tyrannosaurus deserves to be number 1!

Duh! He definitely has to be number one!

2 Spinosaurus Spinosaurus Spinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what now is North Africa, during the lower Albian to lower Cenomanian stages of the Cretaceous period, about 112 to 97 million years ago.

Spinosaurus was the largest land carnivore that ever lived! He is also very rare and hard to find, there are not many fossils found of the Spinosaurus so he holds many secrets. Spinosaurus also was much like a crocodile living on land and hunting in water. He was an extreme predator!

It has sail like thing in its back

Has some wicked looking teeth!

3 Velociraptor Velociraptor Velociraptor is a genus of dromaeosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived approximately 75 to 71 million years ago during the later part of the Cretaceous Period.

I realize that the Jurassic Park movies display this dinosaur inaccurately. I don't care. They're cool in the books and they're cool in the movies, if they are unrealistic. Besides, real-life velociraptor probably evolved into or from birds, which is pretty interesting.

Due to contrary belief, the Velociraptor was not a sleek door-opening dude. Nope, he was feathery, agile, and quick. However- the Jurassic Park version of Velociraptor is fake. Let's face it, Hollywood stretches the truth. Trust me, Jurassic Park is one of my favorite movies, but it's not a Velociraptor, it's a Deinonychus. No dinosaur ever had the intelligence or a primate, either. Even the smartest dino, Troodon, was as smart as a newborn kitten. The so-called "Clever Girl" is still one of the most amazing dinosaurs. Speedy and vicious, Velociraptors were ferocious and could scare the daylights out of most people.

It's not really a big Dino like in Jurassic Park. It was really only like 3 feet long and had feathers. So it was really just like an over sized bird, but I have to give it to him he was deadly! He did not look that cool though. I want to like this guy but I can't.

I'm not only voting for the display it done in the movie juarassic park, but the actual intelligence of it in the actual period of the dinosaurs.

4 Triceratops Triceratops Triceratops is a genus of herbivorous ceratopsid dinosaur that first appeared during the late Maastrichtian stage of the late Cretaceous period, about 68 million years ago in what is now North America.

it has its horns to protect itself from predetors

I want a puppy sized Triceratops. No jokes. If anyone can some how create a tame tiny trice, I will pay you a lot of money for one...

You know that triceratops was said you be fake the guy who discover it lied it he just put random bones to make it

The thing has three super-sharp keratin tipped horns! Scientists agree that they were probably for display, but if I had three foot long horns, I would not stop to think "Wait, my horns are for display purposes only", rather, I would gut whatever giant carnivore. was trying to get at my insides.

This is my favorite type of dinosor

5 Parasaurolophus Parasaurolophus Parasaurolophus is a genus of ornithopod dinosaur that lived in what is now North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 76.5–74.5 million years ago.

It was always my favorite when I was a kid and it is still my favorite now. I've always loved herbivorous dinosaurs that had a unique quality and the parasaurolophus was no exception. If their awesome horn is filled with water they can make a loud noise to warn the herd that a predator is coming. That to me is pretty amazing.

I have loved Parasaurolophus ever since I was able to say its name at the age of 6 and I have loved it ever since. It is just such an amazing dinosaur. Its crest is amazing and it just looks so cool. That's why Parasaurolophus is my favorite.

This dinosaurs should be safe while they are standing near water as water predators attack it

cool as

6 Carcharodontosaurus Carcharodontosaurus Carcharodontosaurus is a genus of carnivorous carcharodontosaurid dinosaurs that existed between 100 and 94 million years ago, during the Cenomanian stages of the mid-Cretaceous Period.

I like this guy very sharp than the t-rex can easily with the T Rex and when it but it's too small then material or it can also win but the t-rex Milk easily find a florist you can kill the dinosaur

Carcharodontosaurus was the first dinosaur that only I knew about.i was the only kid who knew what a Carcharodontosaurus would have eaten how tall it was hoe much it weighed everything. And even know I love Carcharodontosaurus oh and I use to always complaining that it wasn't in any JP films. And even now I still complaining how the indominus Rex isn't part Carcharodontosaurus.

Shark-face dinosaur. Need I say more?

Those teeth...

7 Stegosaurus Stegosaurus Stegosaurus is a type of armored dinosaur. Their fossil bones have been found in rocks dated to the Late Jurassic period, between 155 and 150 million years ago, in the western United States and Portugal.

I love the spiked tail

This dinosaur is my favorite with the spikey tail and the plates on its back just a cool dinosaur

Sorry because the person who wrote stegosaurus Can Run 4 miles per hour is not a fact it is the slowest dinosaur ever it is worst and not useful for anything I don't like this dinosaur

When I first looked at this list I was like huh? I mean yes I agree t rex is first but ol spinoshould be like five or six. triceratops should be second stegosaurus third and velociraptor fourth. come on people stego wasnt that dumb it just didn't need to be that smart. stego is instantly recgonizable like trike. come on lets get stego up higher!

8 Dilophosaurus Dilophosaurus Dilophosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur. It contains a single known species, Dilophosaurus wetherilli, known from fossil remains found in the Kayenta formation of Arizona.

Awesome dinosaur, even if it doesn't have a frill or poison.

If you have seen Jurassic Park, It has mistaken you. It was 20 feet, not 5 feet. It also wasn't poisonous, but it was deadly.

I think Dilophosaurus was an excellent dinosaur because it is my all time favourite dinosaur

It has no frill acutly and dos spit poeson

9 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus

I was amazed by this creature when I watched Jurassic Park.

This this dinosaur is a vegetarian and have a long neck but it can't defeat.

I think this dinosaur is worst even though it is big it can't beat a T Rex as it is a vegetarian and don't have attacking teeth

So rad

10 Allosaurus Allosaurus Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 150 million years ago during the late Jurassic period.

Smarter, faster and hunted in packs. Killed and eat dinosaurs way bigger than it self

Allosaurus have a big Mom we eat anything it's nice to eat huge Dinosaurs but Boy has a huge mouth it can't Beat It lyrics T Rex is the number one day No ever

Allosaurus deserves to be number one!

The allosaurus is a faster type t rex it was known to be the mini t rex

The Contenders

11 Giganotosaurus Giganotosaurus Giganotosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in what is now Argentina, during the early Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 99.6 to 97 million years ago.

I'll give you an order of my favorite dinosaurs:

Five: pterosaurs. They are not dinosaurs but are quite underrated. They were flying reptiles, not dinosaurs.

Four: Utahraptor. All though the velociraptor gets all the fame, this one is larger, and more deadly.

Three: Giganotosarus: larger than t rex, and is not overrated, but not underrated. It could take down a huge sauropod.

Two: tyrannosaurus rex: I saw on a list of the strongest meat-eating dinosaurs and Giganotosarus was number five. Tyrannosaurus rex was number two. So I guess tyrannosaurus rex was smaller, but stronger than Giganotosarus.

One: spinosaurus. This was a very unique creature. It had a crocodile snout. And ate mostly fish. It has a huge spine. But the pictures I look at, some looked liked an elephant seal, not a dinosaur. But the new look, has the unique snout, walked on all fours, but still has the awesome look.

Ever since I saw the Walking with Dinosaurs special "Land of Giants", I have loved Giganotosaurus (this is when I was in Kindergarten, AKA 12 years ago). He is big. He is mean. He hunted the largest dinosaur of all time (as far as we know). Plus, if he wasn't cool enough already, it is believed that they hunted in PACKS. Picture Jurassic Park with a T. Rex that is slightly bigger, slightly less bulky, and then add in anywhere from 2-5 more of them. THAT would be a hell of a movie. (Get on it JW2... You have 3 years, you can do that in that amount of time.)

Mini search the judge and Thesaurus is the biggest Dinosaur and it can eat anything at any time it is very cunning and it is bigger than that period I like this very much and it is very good I know

Superb Dino

14 Utahraptor Utahraptor Utahraptor is a genus of theropod dinosaurs. It contains a single species, Utahraptor ostrommaysorum, which is the largest known member of the family Dromaeosauridae.

There can't be a best dinosaur because everybody has there own opinion however my favourite dinosaur is Utahraptor because it had speed agility size strength claws teeth intelligence.

Utah raptor is the most deadliest dinosaurs of all times it speed agility and its toe claw the biggest of the raptor family that's my opinion

Serrated teeth slashing claws and speed.

Similar look like the Velociraptor, but way bigger!

15 Charonosaurus

Amazing out-outstanding

He is very bold and very attractive

Very bad dinosaur not a dinosaur

It's just an Asian Parasaurolophus. Nothing special.

16 Troodon Troodon

No I can't believe it how the world's intelligent dinosaur troodon can be at this place this is not true it is the intelligence dinosaur ever won the Valli character it can even kill a designer Service reps should be in the first place the biggest Diana where is not this but it's the smallest by No ever and should be at the first place because of a cunning net

The smartest dinosaur. Forget the Velociraptor. They weren't really "smarter than dolphins or whales." Troodons were the smartest. They weren't geniuses or anything, but they could have evolved had they not gone extinct.

These dinosaurs also scare the crap out of me, who's with me on this one?

My new favourite dinosaur due to its intelligence, adaptability and they may have evolved to become as smart as humans had they not gone extinct.
This list is dominated by too many large theropods while the awesome troodon is at 17th.

17 Diplodocus Diplodocus

Diplodocus grew up to 180 feet long and could whip its tail at 250 miles an hour!

I have heard this Dinosaurs name before and it should be one of the powerful dinosaur in the world

Diplomacy is awesome! His tail had spikes like an iguana! He used it like a whip to cut enemies!

I want dinosaur image I have forgot it but I like this dinosaur very much being the first Dinosaurs I have seen but I think it's not a dinosaur but its Rakesh

18 Argentinosaurus Argentinosaurus

The biggest Dinosaur ever it's a vegetarian and its neck was very long and it is bigger than blue whales! Today blue whale is the biggest animals ever but many years ago argentinosaurus was the biggest animal ever

They use to be the biggest dinosaur until more sauropod was discovered (including amphicoelias) that was more bigger then argentinosaurus

Argentinasaurus was actually the largest dinosaur of all time. It really deserves to be on this list! Ad it now.

They're the best thing ever

19 Brontosaurus / Apatosaurus

The Land Before Time- Littlefoot

I liked these dinos but recently in 2015, brontosaurus was now officially made valid again thanks to an extensive research in April 2015 after the people who did the research found differences between it and apatosaurus in the original bones. But despite the reseach and the differences found in the bones which is the neck, shoulder blade and of course the ankles, some people doesn't agree with the research and still decided to keep brontosaurus as a synonym of apatosaurus.

These guys were cool, but it's just Apatosaurus, because the bones of "brontosaurus" were proven to be the bones of Apatosaurus, which had been named and discovered first.

I have seen worse

20 Megalodon Megalodon The megalodon is an extinct species of shark which was about 59 feet (18 meters) long and hunted in the seas until about 1.5 million years ago. It was similar to today's great white shark-but three times longer and 20 times heavier. more.

Megalodon is not a dinosaur it's a shark...

Megalodon is not a dinosaur. It is a shark. Unlike a dinosaur, it had no bones, just cartilage, which is why only its teeth have been found. It only lived around 16-3 million years ago, while the dinosaurs went extinct 66. Third, Megalodon is a shark, which is a fish, while dinosaurs were related to birds and crocodillians. Lastly, just because something's extinct doesn't mean it's a dinosaur. Otherwise all hominids would be dinosaurs. Even creatures that did live with the dinosaurs, like Pteranodon and Mosasaurus were not dinosaurs. This should not be on this list.

The Megalodon is a shark species and doesn't belong on this page. I do agree it is the greatest of the Sharks and deserves number one on the SHARK page.

It isn't a dinosaur but I still voted for it
