Top 10 Deadliest Carnivorous Dinosaurs

The 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.

21 Yangchuanosaurus Shangyouensis Yangchuanosaurus Shangyouensis

At 35 feet long

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. - RaptorOnFire1206

22 Dilophosaurus Wetherilli

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.

23 Megalosaurus Bucklandii Megalosaurus Bucklandii

Megalosaurus! Prominently the first dinosaur ever discovered, Megalosaurus was a primitive mid-Jurassic 30 foot long monster that hunted down small mid-Jurassic sauropods. The first dinosaur ever to be discovered, Megalosaurus was named "Big lizard" because that was what the scientists thought of Megalosaurus at the time (the 1700's). Megalosaurus was big, but wasn't the most brightest of dinosaurs. Since this dino was a primitive reptile, Megalosaurus had a relatively small, unfocused brain. But this monster made up for his size, being one of the biggest theropods of his time (160 mya, 10 million years before Allosaurus). - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

Its first name was scrotum humanun and that's funny

24 Gorgosaurus Libratus Gorgosaurus Libratus

Gorgosaurus was 26-30 feet long

At 30 feet long

Gorgosaurus lived at the same time (75 mya) and same place (Alberta) as Albertosaurus, that some scientists classify Gorgosaurus as a specimen of Albertosaurus, Sharing similar traits with his twin, Gorgo is only identified as a separate species because Gorgosaurus has different shaped teeth, more for slicing meat than crunching bone. So the main difference is that instead of head-on breaking the bones of the dinos (like Albertosaurus/T-Rex), Gorgosaurus runs up, slices their flesh with his teeth, runs away, and waits for the victim to bleed to death, having a similar strategy to Jurassic monsters such as Allosaurus and Torvosaurus. The only reason why Gorgo is classified as "tyrannosauridae" is because of his short, two-fingered, puny "arms". - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

25 Indosaurus Matleyl Indosaurus Matleyl

Indosaurus as an abelisauridae, a group four-fingered dinosaurs. This small but lethal 20 foot long predator is built to kill. Indosaurus is not the sharpest knife in the drawer, but he is very fast. One of the most deadly predators found in India (hence the name Indosaurus: "Indian lizard"), Indosaurus is most likely the top predator. Indosaurus is not built for size, but for speed. Most likely, Indosaurus is to chase down quick and nimble but small herbivores, not large sauropods. Indosaurus can run up to an amazing 28 mph. But Indosaurus had to share his land with Rajasaurus, and since Raja was larger, he had to share some of his food with Raja. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

26 Daspletosaurus Torosus Daspletosaurus Torosus

30-35 feet long

Daspletosaurus Torosus as a smaller genus of tyrannosauridae, only reaching the lengths of about 30-32 feet long. Daspletosaurus is an earlier resemblance of his big bro T-Rex, with the same above-average brain, bone-crunching jaws, but sadly lacking T-Rex and Tarbo's size, lacking Rex's binocular vision, and his bacterial saliva. Daspletosaurus shared his territory with an even smaller, nimbler tyrannosauridae named Gorgosaurus. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

27 Zhuchengtyrannus Magnus Zhuchengtyrannus Magnus

This 33 foot long tyrannosauridae is a new find, found in 2013. It lived in China during the Late Cretaceous Period, which means he shared a territory with Tarbosaurus. Scientists suspect Zhuchengtyrannus as a juvenile Tarbosaurus or maybe just a smaller specimen of Tarbosaurus. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

28 Australovenator Wintonensis Australovenator Wintonensis

Australovenator is a very vicious hunter, armed with razor-sharp claws and teeth. It can also run very fast at 30 mph or more. It is also smart. It's a very fearsome dinosaur.

A herbivore's nightmare!

Australovenator is a 20 foot long allosauridae that hunted in Late Cretaceous Australia (hence its name "Australian Hunter"). Australovenator is a close relative of Megaraptor, and is also known as a megaraptoridae. Australovenator hunted the sauropod Diamantinasaurus. Austra may have been the top predator of his place and time. (Sorry guys, I'm ending the list here. The list will only stretch to 40. You can check out my other lists, though! ) -RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

29 Albertosaurus Sarcophagus Albertosaurus Sarcophagus

Albertosaurus is another smaller version of T-Rex. Faster, quicker, more agile, with a slightly larger brain, Albertosaurus ruled... You guessed it! Albertosaurus was in control of Alberta, Canada, where this dinosaur was first discovered. 25 feet long and 9 feet tall, this speedy but small tyrannosauridae could sprint up to speeds of over 25-30 mph, almost besting the speedy little raptors. The reason Albertosaurus could run so fast is because of thick, strong muscles in his legs. Still equipped with intelligence, speed, and bone-crushing jaws, Albertosaurus deserves to be in the Top 20. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

At 30-33 feet long

30 Majungasaurus Crenatissimus Majungasaurus Crenatissimus

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 - RaptorOnFire1206

How did Majunga get back here? - knightAlex2004

31 Allosaurus Europaeus Allosaurus Europaeus

This Allosauridae is a smaller specimen of Allosaurus, found in Portugal, hence "Europaeus", which basically means, "from Europe". Allosaurus E. Was ruled by the stupid but big Torvosaurus, who drove Allosaurus to hunt smaller dinos such as the thief Ornitholestes and the flying pterosaurs. This smaller sized Allosaurus was only 25 feet long max. And about 7 feet tall. But, Allosaurus could easily outsmart Torvosaurus, as shown in Dinosaur Revolution: A Good Neighbor. This specimen of Allosaurus was also smaller than Allosaurus Fragilis, the big American older brother that could stamp Torvo like an ant. But, poor Europaeus is 15 feet shorter than Allosaurus Fragilis, so he has to deal with being bullied by Torvosaurus Tanneri. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

32 Chilantaisaurus Tashuikouensis Chilantaisaurus Tashuikouensis

This large Chinese predator ruled China while Carcharodontosaurus and Spinosaurus ruled Africa, Giganotosaurus ruled South America, and Acrocanthosaurus ruled North America (all at 92 mya). Chilantaisaurus seems closely related to Allosaurus and Yangchuanosaurus, all three of them being part of the allosauridae. But, Chilantaisaurus was probably more closely related to Yangchuanosaurus, since both of them were from China, and that both of them were heavy allosaurs that were only in the 30 foot long area (Chilantaisaurus is 36-38 feet long, Yang is 32-34 feet long, but Allosaurus, the biggest of them all, is 39-41 feet long). Some scientists suspect that Yang had learned to survive through the Jurassic and somehow came into the Cretaceous, evolving into the slightly larger and heavier Chilantaisaurus that, 70 million years after Yangchunosaurus supposedly went extinct, came back into China with a bigger and stronger (some scientists say a little smarter) body of Chilantaisaurus ...more - RaptorOnFire1206

33 Megaraptor Namunhuaiquil Megaraptor Namunhuaiquil

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 - RaptorOnFire1206

34 Abelisaurus Comahuensis Abelisaurus Comahuensis

This large predator, at 30 feet long, is the apex predator of his time in the Late Cretaceous in South America, 75 mya, sharing the land alongside Carnotaurus. Abelisaurus has one of the strongest jaws ever in dinosaur history, being able to kill a dinosaur with one bite. But, Abelisaurus is quite slow in speed, a very primitive, slow thinker, and has tiny, four-fingered unreachable arms. Still, at 30 feet long and 10 feet tall, this dinosaur is a monster from fiction. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

35 Neovenator Salerii Neovenator Salerii

This British hunter from England is a smaller sized allosaur, able to rip through many layers of flesh with his great claws and large skull. Though, not the biggest of allosaurs (only 25 feet long), Neovenator is a terrorizing killer with a sharp mind a speedy build (able to run up to speeds of 30 mph). Neovenator was the top predator of his time and place (125 mya, Early Cretaceous, England), sharing the land with the fish-eater Baryonyx. Neovenator probably hunted Iguanadon for a tasty meal. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

36 Ceratosaurus Nasicornis Ceratosaurus Nasicornis

Ceratosaurus is a small Late Jurassic theropod that hunted smaller iguanodonts such as Camptosaurus. Ruled by Allosaurus and Saurophaganax, Ceratosaurus is known for his distinctive horn on the end of his snout. That is the main reason of his name, which means "horned lizard". Ceratosaurus is a 20-25 foot long slender carnivore, easily outsized by the 38 foot long Allosaurus and the 45 foot long Saurophaganax. Scientists also say that Ceratosaurus was also outsmarted, since Ceratosaurus was a primitive dinosaur with a dull, non-calculating brain. But still, Ceratosaurus is a fearsome sight in battle! - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

Was 20-25 feet (6.1-7.6 meters) long.

Weighs 1,700-2,900 lbs

May have hunted young saurpods and speedy prey such as camptosaurus and dryosaurus.

37 Dromaeosaurus Albertensis Dromaeosaurus Albertensis

Even though the Fastest Dinosaur Crown goes to Gallimimus, the "chicken mimic", who can race up to speeds of 45-50 mph, almost as fast as today's cheetah, Dromaeosaurus is the race car of the carnivores. Dromaeosaurus is not a big dino, at only about 6 feet long and 2.5 feet tall. But Dromaeosaurus is a natural runner, being the fastest of all carnivores, racing at the top speed of 40 mph. Small but fast, Dromaeosaurus makes his move at number 29. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

38 Eustreptospondylus Oxoniensis Eustreptospondylus Oxoniensis

Eu (lets call him Eu... Eustreptospondylus is just TOO much of a mouthful) was an allosauridae, also classified in the more primitive group, the megalosauridae. Eustreptospondylus was a medium-sized mid-Jurassic British predator, stretching up to 25 feet long and 7 feet tall. Eu fed near the coastal waters of England, where he would fish for washed up fish, clam, crabs, lobsters, and turtles (sometimes even small sharks) to feed on. Featured in BBC's Walking With Dinosaurs, Eu was eaten by a Liopleurodon (a 30 foot long sea monster). Eustreptospondylus had barely any predator since he was basically the only "big" predator on his stranded island (similar to Majungasaurus). England was spread out in many different small islands, and it is said that Eu is a very capable swimmer (though these times in the water makes it very likely for Eu to be preyed upon by Liopleurodon and other large sea reptiles). - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

39 Sauroniops Pachytholus Sauroniops Pachytholus

Named after the Lord of the Rings novel by J.R.R. tokien's main antagonist Lord Sauron, Sauroniops was the typical mid-Cretaceous Period theropod. Measuring up to 30 feet long, this dinosaur was the 3rd top predator after Spinosaurus (1st) and Carcharodontosaurus (2nd). Sauroniops was an allosauridae, so really his hunting style was very similar to Allosaurus's. - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206

40 Eocarcharia Dinops Eocarcharia Dinops

Eocarcharia is a new-found 25 foot long species of allosauridae that hunted in the mid-Cretaceous Africa, scoring 4th top predator after Spinosaurus (1st), Carcharodontosaurus (2nd), and Sauroniops (3rd). As an allosauridae, this 20 foot long predator probably stole prey from other predators because of Eo's speed (25 mph). - RaptorOnFire1206 - RaptorOnFire1206
