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!

I know what you're thinking, isn't T-Rex overrated?

Yes... for a good reason

I know there are other cool carnivores like Spinosaurus and Carnotaurus, T-Rex had the strongest bite of them all. And it's one we grew up with!

Long live da king!

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!

The spinosaurus is a lot larger than the rex and can easily break bones with its claws.

3 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.

Is so cute and my favorite dinosaur.

4 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.

yeah bro

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

There's also a possibility that parasaurolophus breathed fire...

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

Shark-face dinosaur. Need I say more?

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.

This dinosaur is slightly like the t-Rex to me some reason, people think that the t-Rex is like so fascinating I agree, but this dinosaur just caught me up.

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

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

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

A couple of people have left negative comments on this dinosaur, but it is cool and the best of the stegosaurs.

V 21 Comments
8 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!

V 17 Comments
9 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus

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

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

The Brachiosaurus was among the tallest dinos out there and could take on a spino pretty easily they also walked in a pack with the children in the middle so they had to be able to take some hits from larger predictors like the spino.

10 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

Most coolest dinosaur in the world

The Newcomers

? Achelousaurus

The Contenders

11 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!

Why is Allosaurus in 11 th place because it is my favorite dinosaur 😥

12 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

In the game ARK the giganotosaurus its one of the best land dinos in the whole game.

13 Corythosaurus Corythosaurus

This is a zebea dinosaur. It is pure awesomeness!

fat

It’s a zebra!

14 Carnotaurus Carnotaurus Carnotaurus, meaning "Meat eating Bull" in Ancient Greek, is a genus of abelisauridae theropod dinosaur that lived in what is now South America about 70 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period.

I find this guy to look cool and he's a great hunter. He was great in the movie 'Dinosaur' from 2000. Something I don't like about Jurassic Park is that they don't have a variety of dinosaurs. Mainly just Tyrannosaurus and Spinosaurus.

Come on get Carnotaurus higher! It was a extremely successful hunter! - Morasuka

Guys carnotaurus was like the prehistoric cheetah

How fast is Carnotaurus in miles per hour

15 Ankylosaurus Ankylosaurus Ankylosaurus is a genus of armored dinosaur. Fossils of Ankylosaurus have been found in geological formations dating to the very end of the Cretaceous Period, between about 68–66 million years ago, in western North America, making it among the last of the non-avian dinosaurs.

This is the best Dino, no one could mess with this bad boy. This is definitely a Dino you would want to have a beer with.

These dinosaurs has many cool features like covered in spikes except for it belly

It's so cool. It has a spiked back and a rock on his tail.

The cutest, didn�'t necessary want to get into trouble but if they did they were well protected. Love them.

18 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?

The best dino

19 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

20 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

This dinosaur weighed 200,000 thousand pounds it was one fat dinosaur but, it's still my favourite dino9 of all time.

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

They're the best thing ever

21 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. ...read 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.

Very good comment. I was gonna vote for this guy, but I quickly realized as you did, he was not a Dinosaur, and this, doesn't qualify for this list. Too bad really. Someone should make a list for greatest sharks, if they haven't already. - Ned964

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.

I love megalodon

22 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

23 Pachycephalosaurus Pachycephalosaurus

They couldn't bang their skulls together, because they had nothing to release the pressure, so that myth is busted.

Anything that would release the pressure would be decayed over time it probably had a spongy like tissue around its brain to protect it from hard blows much like a woodpecker has this tissue to prevent injury from pecking wood. Also why else would they have such a thick skull? - Katekat123

Should be in top 10 from there heads and shear strength

This low!

24 Dakotaraptor Dakotaraptor Dakotaraptor is a genus of large carnivorous theropod dromaeosaurid dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous of North America.

Pretty much the JP Raptors - Darth_Tyrant

Kinda overshadowed by utahraptor...

25 Lambeosaurus Lambeosaurus
26 Hypacrosaurus Hypacrosaurus
27 Deinonychus Deinonychus

If your favorite dinosaur is the Velociraptor from Jurassic Park, then vote for Deinonychus! Real raptors were small, feathered, probably hunted alone, and were not intelligent. They appear that way in the books and movies due to a misclassification of the Deinonychus as a subspecies of Velociraptor. The Deinonychus is what you saw in Jurassic Park. They still weren't the smartest dinosaurs (that's the Troodon), but they were smart enough to hunt together.

Basically a mini Utahraptor its claws are nearly as big also they hunt in packs so this dinosaur was cool.

They were the velociraptor from Jurassic park, and they are bigger and cooler than real velociraptor.

Terrible claw!

28 Sarcosuchus

I love crocodiles but this guy is 3 times the size he should be in the top 10 AT LEAST

so come on people VOTE FOR THIS GUY!

29 Pterodactyl

Contrary to popular belief pterosaurs are not dinosaurs although they are still pretty cool.

They are possibly the most famous flying dinosaur it should be in the top 10

Come on really? Just put him in number one immediately. HE CAN FLY.

I mean ok sure trex is always number one for some reason but I at least expected him to be in the top 10. Instead he is 31

Very MLG because they can fly and most of the other dinosaurs who rely on brute strength can't.

Largest sea monster ever!

Water big monster is big teeth, green body and dangerous dinosaur's and very speed fighter

Tell that to shonisaurus.

34 Suchomimus Suchomimus

It's not my favorite, but I like suchomimus. I know lots about dinosaurs, but this is one of the only Dino's I only know one or 2 things about. I know it's part of the spino family.

The third biggest in the spinosauridae family (beside oxalaia and spinosaurus)

Spino is overrated. Like a prehistoric crocodile. I bipedal, roaring, giant one. In a fight, Sucho could beat Rex like a boss. Like a boss of dinosaurs.Long love Suchomimus! Long live the dino king! please get this to #1.

35 Tarbosaurus Tarbosaurus

A cousin of the well known tyrannosaurus rex.

2nd best tyrannosaur after Tyrannosaurus Rex

Tarbosaurus was the king of Asia

36 Therizinosaurus Therizinosaurus

This is my favorite dinosaur. I don't care if it isn't a carnivore, this thing is awesome! It's armed with claws that can easily rip other dinosaurs open, and it is much bigger than your fan favorite Tyrannosaurus rex. So yeah, that's why I love this thing.

The Therizinosaurus's amazing claws and bone structure are enough to move this guy up on the list!

In my opinion, they are the scariest land herbivores I've seen.

Look at those claws man I swipe and your mince meat

37 Baryonyx Baryonyx

The baryonyx is a cousin of the well known spinosaurus. But the bad news is spinosaurus is getting more and more overrated. Soon it will probably be more overrated than the tyranosarus rex.

Its just awesome!

My favourite, Baryonyx used to be a very underrated dinosaur but I guess it is moving up on the popularity list.

This is one of the most best carnivores found in Britain a close relative to the spino that mostly eaten fish it was like the British spino

44 Gigantosaurus

This dinosaur is already on the list

We saw him in top ten

Some would say the T-Rex is, despite being smaller, stronger then this giant beast but no, it is in fact stronger and bigger then the T-Rex, on a list (and when I say this I mean accurate list, not some fake one made my fans) the top 3 would be 1. The Titanosaur despite being a herbivore it's actually one of the strongest and biggest dinosaur in history 2. Is the dreaded Gigantosaurus, it is confused to be weaker then the Rex but is infact much stronger, on a 1v1 fight the Giga is a sure fire winner 3. The T-Rex often confused with being stronger then the Giga (number 2) sure it's strong but there's some Dino's even this bad boy can't take on 4. would be the Spino, it is just as ferocious as the Rex but Isn't as powerful despite getting off topic I'm not sure what number 5 is, I know the Allosaurus is strong but the Thylacoleo is stronger and isn't in the top 5 now anyone who went to 8th grade would know the Giga is stronger then the Rex

45 Seismosaurus
