Top Ten Most Bizarre and Weird Dinosaurs

The Top Ten

1 Therizinosaurus Therizinosaurus

No dinosaur will ever be as weird and bizarre as Therizinosaurus and it's kin. It's a theropod, so you'll be expecting it as a carnivore judging by it's infamous claws when in reality it's a herbivore that used it's claws as either defense or to pull branches towards it. Another amazing factor is that when it was first discovered, scientists speculated that it was a gigantic turtle. Heck, it even looks like a reptilian sloth! - hussaintalib

Who did you expect? This dinosaur is just so weird that it is actually really cool. Man, with 1-meter long claws, you'd be thinking that this is going to be one terrifying monster yet it is a herbivore despite its status as a theopod! And plus, even it's whole family tree is consisted of herbivores. Therizinosaurus still stands out as the most bizarre and weirdest dinosaur in existence. Also, don't get fooled, this beast can sure slice up a Tarbosaurus with it's awesome claws :)!

The Therizinosaurus was a truly odd beast. Even though it is only known from it's arms and legs, it's safe to assume it was an herbivore
Based on it's family tree. Scientists assume it used it's claws to slice branches off trees. Therizinosaurus deserves this spot, and it is my favorite dinosaur.

Do you know which dinosaur is cooler than one with Wolverine claws?

2 Masaikasaurus

Very poorly known, so it really deserves a spot. I mean, it's teeth are just so scary yet surprisingly cool and bizarre.

3 Sharovipteryx
4 Concavenator

The Concavenator is a weird dinosaur with a weird bone on its back! Its very weird.

5 Raptorex

I want to know if the raptorex was a raptor

6 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 is one of my favourite dinosaurs ever, probably in my top 3. And No, I'm not going for Jurassic Park III.

Partly why I love Spinosaurus is because of how unique and bizarre it looks. No dinosaur could be just as ridiculous-looking as that (Maybe except Therizinosaurus, but who cares). It's a fish-eater, despite being, well, theropod and that snout just steals people's attention. The sail itself just makes it's appearance more appealing and lastly, it's a quadrupedal animal. And that's coming from a theropod, something that always walks on two feet.

I don't think it holds a candle to the Rex, but I love Spinosaurus for being it's own. Weird, big and just amazing to look at, It's one dinosaur you wouldn't think about until actually seeing it :). - CrimsonShark

It is very bizarre. The 2014 discovery made it look like one of the most bizarre dinosaurs ever.

Is the spinosaurus was the deadliest dinosaur

This is the best dino cool like the best dino

9 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 wouldn't forget my third favorite dinosaur on this! Carnotaurus sure does look weird. A bulldog-like head, a well preserved body with bony bumps on it's back and surprisingly puny arms are just as enough to make this land on this list. Oh, and it looks demonic too :).

I always found Carnotaurus to be one my favorites, and it, well... Looks like a bull/dinosaur. It's long legs for speed make this big-headed dinosaur look very interseting while running. Or so I presume. - Brainy1130

Weird, but awesome and dangerous.

10 Amargasaurus Amargasaurus

A small sauropod with long, spiky spines on it's back formed into a double sail, now that's genius for something like Amargasaurus.

The Contenders

11 Suzhousaurus
12 Mononykus

Small, puny and very poorly known. But however, this guy has only one finger and just looks kind of weird to me as well.

13 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.

The first "King of the Dinosaurs", Dilophosaurus is now one of the most famous (Nice job Spielberg). And plus, those crests are just so cool-looking. No frill and poison, those were just imaginary.

It didn't have frills or shoot acid, it was a dangerous dinosaur though and it did have those round horns.

I want to know if this creature had a poisonous spit.

14 Ornitholestes
15 Nothronychus

17 Scansoriopteryx
18 Parksosaurus

This creature was a realitive of an storikosaurus.Maybe it could have been a meat eater

19 Microraptor

While very revolutionary in terms of evolution and paleontology, this guy gets a spot mainly due to it's wings. I mean, who would like a gliding dinosaur?!

20 Any Ceratopsian

I mean, they have so many weird frills and intricate designs, it's just so hard to choose from which one. We've got Styracosaurus, Pachyrhinosaurus, Medusaceratops and quite a lot of more! So, I just thought if I could just compile all of them into one spot. My personal favorite would have to be Diabloceratops though...

Even if styracosaurus may look weird it is
Still cool and actually a lot of people like it
Like me. Styracosaurus is so cool
And my most favorite dinosaur ever
