Top 10 Deadliest Carnivorous DinosaursThe Top 10 Deadliest Carnivorous Dinosaurs, in my opinion in scientific research and/or the web. I've been enjoying dinosaurs for almost ten years, and after comparing the statistics of the carnivorous dinosaurs, here's what I think of as the perfect Deadly Carnivore Dino list (sorry I'm not putting Tyrant King at first). By the way this is only for carnivores. No herbivores included. Sorry my herbivore fans.- RaptorOnFire1206, Creator of the List.
you just can't beat t-rex. One of the smartest dinosaurs ever to live. The third biggest carnivore ever on land (behind giga and spino), strongest bite force by far (only being surpassed by Megalodon and deinosuchus). this thing takes down dangerous herbivores like triceratops and even the ankylosaurus. Its called the king for a reason. its both a predator and a scavenger (mainly predator, only scavenges when its preagnet, injured or other reasons)
I can spit out random facts about the tyrannosaurus rex that you probably never heard before. I love the T-rex. I loved it when it showed the Tyrannosaurus in Jurassic Park as it got loose from it's enclosure and it was walking around the vehicles because the kids were inside one of them
Tyrannosaurus Rex! The Official King of Dinos! So why number 2? Most lists support T-Rex as number 1 because of his dino "royalty", made famous in Jurassic Park. Well, here is why: Also known as "T-Rex", Tyranno is not as big as earlier giants such as Spinosaurus, Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus, Saurophaganax, Tyrannotitan, or Mapusaurus. So to bring it, T-Rex is NOT the largest dino in history (sorry to ruin your childhood). BUT the Tyrant King also HAS many objectives in his favor. Some facts that bring him in to be number 2 is that he has binocular vision, an above-average brain, bone-crushing jaws, and infecting teeth. You probably haven't heard of the last one, eh? Well, newer research has proven that T-Rex has dead meat stuck in his teeth. The meat, rotting in his teeth, will transfer into a victim's bloodline as T-Rex crunches into their body and the bacteria-filled saliva flows into the veins. The bacteria from the rotting meat will start to weaken the victim, so even if ...more
Why is every single spinosaurus voter saying spinosaurus would win because its bigger. that is really the only thing they say. Let me tell you that that SIZE DOESN'T MATTER. Even the greatest jedi of all time said "judge me by my size, Do you? " and actually, spino being big is a disadvantage. With big size comes great clumsiness. Its true.
Try to imagine a 52 to 59 foot tall land predator with a body full of weapons that included massively-long arms with huge slashing claws, a powerful whip like tail, a humongous sail on its back, and a massive crocodile-like snout full of teeth that are about 18 meters in length. This wasn't like any creature today on earth, and it probably wouldn't be a particularly graceful animal. This was clearly an animal that was built for power. In fact, Spinosaurus, as far as the eye can see, must have been a truly homicidal dinosaur to encounter.
The look of Spinosaurus is EXTREMELY deceiving. It looks like it could be strong as T rex, but it might have been less aggressive and more of some giant goose. I would think it would be aggressive during mating season, but most of the time if you sat beside a Spinosaurus, it wouldn't care at all to eat a person.
As a spinosaurus fan, I know for a fact that spinosaurus was quite weak. It had small legs, arms too weak to bear weight and a paddle shaped tail. Though this image seems to be somewhat of a design from planet dinosaur, and planet dinosaur spinosaurus is portrayed stronger. Thus I voted for this
Spinosaurus was in fact bigger than tyrannosaurus. A good deal bigger. It was a piscivore, meaning that it ate fish, but was also an opportunistic hunter, meaning that if it had the chance to go for other prey, it would go for it. I lived in a different place and time than t-rex, but it did live with another colossus; Carcharodontosaurus. Spinosaurus' titanic claws and large, crocodile-like jaws made it a formidable to other dinosaur that dare to go anywhere near it's kill or try to make a meal out of it. It was also very unique, being quadrupedal, unlike most dinosaurs, and it even had a sail on its back, most likely used to regulate body temperature, or even as a mating display. One last thing, I'm suprised that oxylania wasn't on this list! It was in fact only a trifle smaller that spinosaurus, and was just as vicious.
Giganotosaurus: The second largest dinosaur next to Spinosaurus, Giga had a stronger bite force then Spinosaurus. Though his bite force is not yet as strong as T-Rex's, Giganotosaurus's size beats almost every factor in Tyrannosaurus. Plus, Giganotosaurus has longer arms then the puny... Um, stumps, of T-Rex. At the same time, Giga is proven to have a lighter build then T-Rex, which means Giganotosaurus can run faster (studies have shown that while Rex runs up to 15 mph, Giganotosaurus can be as speedy as 20 mph or more). Giganotosaurus is also known to hunt in packs, since many Giganotosaurus skeletons are found together, probably so they could bring down large sauropods such as Argentinosaurus. After all, Giga deserves to be number one in my opinion. - RaptorOnFire1206
I am the biggest dinosaur nerd ever. I could name over 5000 different dinosaurs when I was three and was stumping experts with questions when I was 5, and I have to say that gigantosaurus is the most deadly because it has a stronger bite force than spinosaurus, is way larger than the t rex, and has powerful arms, unlike the puny stumps that the t rex has. the name says it all
Until I see otherwise, I do think that Giganotosaurus is the largest predatory dinosaur and most likely was the deadliest. This South American behemoth lived along side massive titanosaurs such as Argentinosaurus and Saltasaurus, so it's safe to presume it would have had to have been a great hunter in order to at least hunt down a juvenile.
A male giga would slaughter any Carcharodontosaurus simply because males are way way more territorial and smarter than females possibly even faster and maybe a bit bigger bite force then females!
The third-largest land predator after Spinosaurus and Giganotosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus is basically an oversized version of the famous Allosaurus. Studies have shown that Carcharodontosaurus has the same brain function and size as an Allosaurus, and have the same attacking strategies. The only thing that sets Carchar apart from Allosaurus is that Carcharodontosaurus is about 45 feet long, longer than a 41 foot long T-Rex, and much longer than a 39 foot long Allosaurus. But there is still another similarity between Carchar and Allo: They WEREN'T, yes WEREN'T, the top predator of their time. They were both 2nd to the top: Carcharodontosaurus was ruled by Spinosaurus, and Allosaurus was under the mighty reign of Saurophaganax (though Sauro is thought to be a new specimen of Allosaurus by some scientists). Still, Carcharodontosaurus is a formidable predator, and is very experienced at fighting after all these years sharing the homeland of Spino. - RaptorOnFire1206
This creature had almost as strong a bite as t-rex, plus was faster and could take more of a beating than t-rex or giganotosaurus as well as do more bleed. Carcharodontosaurus was smarter and had steroscopic vision as well as it hunted in packs. Carcharodontosaurus fought spinosaurus and the spino's only chance of survival was run or battle in water.
Should be higher than Giga. Has larger and thicker teeth, and a slightly thicker skull. Had similar built and they both had short arms. While Giga was more fast and smart.
How is this creature not higher on the list? Certainly is deserves at least a top 5. Although I can't really say there is much evidence to support just how deadly it was.
Rajasaurus is a large Indian predator that ruled the Late Cretaceous India alongside Indosaurus. Rajasaurus often battled Indosaurus for meat, usually Indosaurus killing a herbivore with his speed and wits, and Rajasaurus, scaring Indosaurus off with his size. Even though 9 feet longer (Rajasaurus = 29 feet, Indosaurus =20 feet), Rajasaurus doesn't have the speed and wit to hunt like Indosaurus. So the Rajasaurus always had to rely on the smaller but more deadly Indosaurus for food. - RaptorOnFire1206
Large Rajasaurus were up to 40 ft and heavily armored with a good bight force and relatively fast it is at least as Deadly as T-Rex, though I Barely Favor T-Rex because of its Intelligence advantage.
This beast was the most dangerous predator to walk the earth. Imagine that one. Fraction of the size of t-rex, but deadly, twice the intelligence, and able to crush a raptor in those jaws. A living weapon unlike anything we've ever seen!
My name is Raja so does that mean this dinosaur is my spirit animals? That is so cool. On the plus side, its scientifically stronger than t-rex.
The largest living raptor the world has known, this 20 foot long Utahraptor is Mr. Titan among these hook-clawed thieves. Velociraptor, the most famous raptor (because of Jurassic Park), is an average sized raptor at about 6 feet long and 3 feet tall. Deinonychus, a bit larger, is around 10 feet long and 5 feet tall (J.P. potrayed Velociraptor's size to be the size of Deinonchyus). But the true monster, Utahraptor, is averaged at 19 feet long and 8 feet tall. Utahraptor wasn't as speedy as the 35 mph Dromaeosaurus (a member of the raptors aka. Dromaeosaurs), but Utahraptor already tops the speed at 30 mph max., far outrunning other bigger predators such as T-Rex and Giganotosaurus. But what really sets Utahraptor apart from most big killers is he has the brain of the raptors: Smart, tactical, way above average. They say Utahraptor has a brain the size of an Eagle's! So think of this: Who Utahraptor really is: A really intelligent and super agile and fast Ceratosaurus with hooked ...more
The Utahraptor lived in packs and could hunt down even the deadliest of dinosaurs, in a pack, it could take down a Spinosaurus or Tyrannosaurus, and was on top of the food chain at its time. Not only that, it was one of the fastest dinosaurs ever.
This should be at least #5 if not higher. Deadly carnivore with a huge sickle claw and razor sharp teeth.
In packs, this raptor could take out anything but a sauropod. Nobody messes with the sauropod. Not even a Rex or a Spino.
Tarbosaurus is T-Rex's distant cousin of China and Mongolia. Tarbosaurus is just as powerful as T-Rex but lacking a few of Rex's most deadly features. First, Tarbo is quite smaller, at around 36-38 feet long (although some scientists believe that Tarbosaurus is over 40 feet long). Second, Tarbosaurus lacks T-Rex's binocular vision, and third, Tarbo lacks T-Rex's poisonous saliva. But Tarbosaurus does have his American cousin's bone-crushing jaws, though. And they say Tarbo might be a little faster too. Tarbo also has his cousin's above-average sized brain capacity. - RaptorOnFire1206
I saw it looked big and dangerous, and that instantly sparked my interest and love for dinosaurs
Cool! Deadly, but cool!
Is my favorite dino
Needs to be Higher on the list. But you are right. they weren't "6 foot Turkeys", like Jurassic park said. They would have been extremely dangerous, they were indeed pack hunters. They had the retracting claw on their feet. They looked nothing like Jurassic park said. They most likely had feathers, were short, and had a very long, upward-pointed tail.
Velociraptor was made famous from Jurassic Park, portrayed to be man-sized, able to turn doorknobs, and outwit a human. None of that is true. The size of Velociraptor in J.P. is based on Deinoychus, who is 5.5 feet tall and 10 feet long. Well, what about the Velo? Velociraptor is only the size of a full-grown Turkey, at about 7 feet long and 3 feet tall. And any dino, even the two smartest dinosaurs Utahraptor and Troodon could not turn doorknobs neither outwit a human. Still, Velociraptor is quite an intelligent dino, and is one of the fastest dinosaurs too. Velociraptor hunted Protoceratops in Mongolia, being second top predaator next to the tyrannosaur, Tarbosaurus. - RaptorOnFire1206
The best dinosaur in Jurassic Park, it may not have looked like that... but you did not want to cross them. A T-rex, or any of the big dinos would have killed you in one or two chomps... this is not the case with a Velociraptor. They are seen fighting to the death in many fossils with a protoceratops.
Velociraptor lived 85 mya he died in a fight to the death with the ceratopsian dinosaur protoceratops and is Rilly cool they were also fossilized together, oh I forgotten to mention the Velociraptor had feathers.
Mapusaurus is a close cousin of Giganotosaurus, if not a juvenile of Giga. But studies prove that Mapusaurus is a slightly different dinosaur, with a smaller, lighter build, weaker jaws, more of a pack hunter, and a slightly larger brain. Mapusaurus is about the size of T-Rex and Allosaurus, at around 40-42 feet long. Evidence suggests that Mapusaurus traveled in family groups, since bones showed baby, juvenile, and adult Mapusaurus bones scattered near each other. Mapusaurus probably hunted in packs so they could bring down the large Argentinosaurus of his time. Even though a formidable predator, Mapusaurus is not king of his land. That throne is for Giganotosaurus! - RaptorOnFire1206
This dino is very fierce
Was 40 feet long
Similar to Carcharodontosaurus, Saurophaganax is a basic oversized Allo. This dinosaur in 43 feet long, almost the same length as Carcharodontosaurus (45 feet) and Tyrannotitan (42 feet). Sauro is much bigger than his close relative, Allosaurus (39 feet), though. Saurophaganax and Allo are so closely related, and lived at the same time and place as Allosaurus did, many scientists wonder if Saurophaganax was a new Allosaurus specimen. - RaptorOnFire1206
Saurophaganax could Kill you in minutes. You can outrun creatures like Tarbosaurus and Tyrannosaurus. This thing was THE killing machine. T. Rex is no match for S. Maximus!
Can actually kill a T. Rex and its name means King of the Lizard Killers
He can kill T. Rex
Probably the most famous theropod dinosaur next to T-Rex, Velociraptor, and Spinosaurus, made famous by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's the Lost World: A Novel, Allosaurus was one of the most wide-distributed dinosaurs of his era, and being 2nd top predator next to Saurophaganax (though recent studies showed that Saurophaganax was probably just a larger specimen of Allosaurus). Allosaurus killed prey with his regular carnosaur features: Claws, teeth, and, of course, size. It also had two bony knobs on its head, but is most possibly used to scare prey or for attracting mates, but is probably not strong enough for defense of attack. Allosaurus was also probably a swift predator, reaching up to speeds of 24-25 mph. They also say that Allosaurus was a pack hunter, since once they found about 40 Allosaurus skeletons all together in one spot, probably because they found a herbivore stuck in the mud and every five allosauruses or so try to get to the herbivore at a time, but get stuck in the mud ...more
The Allosaurus is an very aggressive predator able to easily take down a carnotaurus 1 on 1 and maybe even 1 on 2 plus it likely traveled in packs meaning it could even take down large herbivores like the camarasaurus, it also had it's fatal hatchet strike thanks to it's strong neck.
I like that it's tall. I knew that it was big and dangerous.
Pure size has been over-rated for the top of this list. Allosaurus's are faster then any of the massive theropods, were hyper aggressive, and had a pack mentality. easily as deadly as anything else.
As far as dinosaurs go, Troodon was the rocket scientist of all dinosaurs. This five foot long genius dino was a dromaeosauridae, or, more commonly known as "raptor". Some scientists say Utahraptor was the most intelligent of dinosaurs, but more scientists today observe that Troodon was probably the smartest of all dinosaurs. With the IQ of a crow, Troodon was a small, intelligent raptor that usually hunted during the night. They say Troodon could see in the night, and that was when Troodon usually hunted, so he wouldn't have to confront bigger dinos of the time such as Tyrannosaurus Rex. This 2 foot tall reptile would spot prey in even the darkest of nights. And as far as dinos go, Troodon was the Albert Einstein of the dinosaurs (while we can say Utahraptor, coming in with an IQ of an eagle and coming in second place, would be the dinosaurs' Thomas Edison). - RaptorOnFire1206
Troodon is the smartest dinosaur OF ITS TIME. Today we know birds are also dinosaurs. Troodon was also smart as an ostrich.
Sinraptor really isn't a raptor, but a closer relative to Allosaurus and Yangchuanosaurus. I have NO idea why Sinraptor is named a "raptor", but... Well, sue the namers. This dino is a quite small Allosauridae, only reaching up to about 25 feet long and about 7 feet tall. So, really, how did this tiny allosaur reach the list? Smaller than the already puny Yangchuanosaurus, Sinraptor is known for his cunning, a little bit smarter than the not-as-bright allosaurs later in the day. Which brings us to... Yeah, Sinraptor is from the early-mid Jurassic Period, unlike Allosaurus, whom comes from the Late Jurassic period, and unlike Yang, who came into play during the mid-late Jurassic. But, like Yang but unlike Allo, Sinraptor is from China. Sinraptor uses his speed to hunt down speedy dinos such as the feathered little dino Epidexipteryx and sometimes a little bit larger herbivores such as the sauropod Shunosaurus. Which brings us to the subject of Sinraptor's speed, which can overpower ...more
Wait a minute, how did this get into number 5? It used to be number 13...
This ought to be on the list. Acro is probably one of the largest predators on land, tied with T-Rex at 40-41 feet long. Acrocanthosaurus ruled the Early Cretaceous, hunting down sauropods and even armored anklyosaurs. Acrocanthosaurus is huge, I gotta take that, but he is only down here because he A. Isn't a very bright dino, and B. This guy is pretty slow. Sometimes even being big won't bring you into the Top 10! -RaptorOnFire1206
NEEDS TO BE IN TOP 10! This could take down any of the ones above and was bigger than most of them
I looked at facts on this dinosaur, and instantly knew I wanted to learn more about it
This dinosaur didn't actually exist though so it doesn't actually classify as a real dinosaur.
I know this is from this dinosaur is from a movie, but it is still a carnivorous dinosaur!
That's a hybrid from Jurassic world dinosaurs couldn't bunch together as one Dino!
I don't think that this should belong. It isn't a real dinosaur, never existed.
Carnotaurus, featured in Disney: Dinosaur, is a large theropod capable of taking down large sauropods with his great jaws in the Late Cretaceous South America, feeding alongside the larger and probably more deadly Abelisaurus. This 30 foot long dinosaur has spikes running down his whole body, probably for protection. A heavyweight, this dinosaur probably took down slower dinosaurs such as sauropods instead of faster iguanodonts, as shown in the movie Disney: Dinosaur. Carnotaurus's name means "meat-eating bull" because 1. Carnotaurus is a carnivore and 2. Carnotaurus has two large horns on the top of his eyes. Carnotaurus probably used his horns to cause wounds in victims, or maybe just for display and attracting mates. Anyhow, this 30 foot long dinosaur is a terror to behold. - RaptorOnFire1206
I personally think the Carnotaurus should be above the deinonychus because the Carnotaurus could bite then well, it's dead. The Carnotaurus has a bite as powerful as two alligators
Carnotaurus is more deadly than t.rex because you may have not known about true killer machine that can run on land, 35 miles per hour!
Carnotaurus is the best
"Size isn't everything! " - Some Random Guy said. Well, that Random Guy is correct. Deinonychus Antirrhopus isn't a real big dino. Actually, he is pretty small, since he's a dromeosaurid like Utahraptor and Velociraptor. Well, Utahraptor may be 19 feet long and 8 feet tall, but for such a deadly dinosaur like Deinonychus, 10 feet long and 5 feet tall is way more than enough. Why? Well, first of all, Deinonychus, like most raptors, hunted in packs. Usually in groups of 7 or 8 (unlike Utahraptor's groups of 3 thru 5), Deinonychus could bring down dinosaurs several times his size, such as its favorite prey, Tenotosaurus, a 30-foot-long iguanodont. Another reason about why Deinonychus is so deadly is because of his cunning. Like all raptors, Deinonychus's brain is WAY above average, with the brain almost the size of a crow's. Deinonychus also, like all raptors, have huge, hook-clawed feet. The second toe acts like a kitchen knife: It sliced through flesh in seconds. Last of all, ...more
Yeah, this dinosaur to me is WAY more deadly than T. Rex...
Oxalia is a large spinosauridae, about the size of a smaller allosauridae, such as Torvosaurus or Yangchuanosaurus. Oxalia is basically a miniature Spinosaurus: But this 35 foot long spinosaur rarely hunted other dinosaurs except in rare conditions, such as the riverbed drying up. Usually, this Late Cretaceous Brazilian hunter mostly hunted fish and sometimes smaller crocodiles in the riverbed, sharing his land with Abelisaurus and Carnotaurus. - RaptorOnFire1206
Yes, I'm going down the list now. Now would be Mr. Yangchuanosaurus, close cousin of his more famous (and stuck-up, in Yang's opinion) cousin Allosaurus Fragilis, made famous from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World: A Novel. Well, Yangchuanosaurus got pushed down the list because... Well, he was SMALLER. Allosaurus was matchable at 39 feet long, able to take down massive sauropods such as Diplodocus and Brachiosaurus. Whattaya 'bout Yang? Well, he's this 32-34 foot long PUNYsaurus (at least puny for his family branch, the allosauridae) that hunts down the much smaller sauropods such as Mamenchisaurus and the stegosaur Kentrosaurus. Also, Yang wasn't as fast as Allosaurus since he weighed about a ton more. Yangchuanosaurus was also not quite as intellegent.
Tyrannotitan is a very new dinosaur, discovered in 2005. Little information is known about Tyrannotitan since only fragments of one skeleton of a Tyrannotitan have been discovered. The bones suggest a large Allosauridae, about 40-43 feet in length (avg. At 42 feet). This early-mid Cretaceous probably competed with larger predators such as Giganotosaurus and Mapusaurus, since all three lived in the Early Cretaceous (115 mya) in Argentina. Even though not much has been known from this new theropod, he is able to shove into the list with his big size. - RaptorOnFire1206
With tyrannosaur-like teeth on a 43' long body, this theropod was deadlier than Giganotosaurus thanks to its more powerful bite force!
Why is the image used to represent this species that of a Giganotosaurus made by the paleontologists at Discovery?
One of the largest theropods of all time and closely related to mapusaurus and giganotosaurus.
Majungasaurus (formerly Majungatholus) was a large African hunter from the Late Cretaceous period, and one of the only dinosaurs discovered in Madagascar, an island near Africa. On Majungasaurus's island, food was scarce, so there are many skeletons showing that Majungasaurus was a cannibal, since there were Majungasaurus teeth marks on smaller Majungasaurus bones. Majunga was a medium sized predator, at around 30 feet long. It had a mighty bite force, and usually hunted rodents and lizards but sometimes became a cannibal. The dinosaur had a dome on the top of his head, probably for showing off to the females. The dome was the reason why Majungasaurus used to be "Majungatholus", because "tholus" was Greek for "dome". - RaptorOnFire1206
Majungasaurus could beat many of the dinosaurs higher up on this list because it had a larger brain than most of them and was also pretty big, it was also a proven cannibal telling us that it will go to extreme measures in dire situations.
Dilophosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur. It contains a single known Species. Dilophosaurus is known from fossil remains found in the Kayenta formation of Arizona USA. This rock formation has been dated to the early Jurassic period about 193 mya. Dilophosaurus was among the largest carnivores of it's time about 7 meters long and had a pair of rounded crests on it's skull.
This is NOT a dinosaur, it is a pterosaur, so it does NOT count.
This is NOT a real dinosaur, so this doesn't count, and it only exist in King Kong movies.
Megaraptor, hence his name, was NOT a raptor. Actually, Megaraptor is a small Allosauridae. This 25 foot long Late Cretaceous Argentina predator had a 10-inch sickle claw on his first finger, not toe. The claw was probably used to slice prey open. Megaraptor probably scavenged, though, on leftovers by larger predators of that time and place such as Giganotosaurus, Mapusaurus, and Tyrannotitan. - RaptorOnFire1206
