Top 10 Best Dinosaurs

The Top Ten
1 Tyrannosaurus Rex Tyrannosaurus, meaning "tyrant lizard", from the Ancient Greek tyrannos, "tyrant", and sauros, "lizard" is a genus of coelurosaurian theropod dinosaur. It also had a tremendous bite force, the strongest of any Dinosaur and living terrestrial animal. Its bite force reached up to 12,800 pounds (roughly 5805 Kilograms).

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!

I am sick of all the Spino fanboys saying that the Spinosaurus would beat the Tyrannosaurus based on two facts. Its size and its claws. Those two "facts" are enough to send me beserks. Also the facts about INSULTING a Tyrannosaur's arms and saying that it is overrated. In my opinion, all dinosaurs are equal. We shouldn't think about Tyrannosaurus vs. Spinosaurus, we should be worrying about our OWN business. The T. Rex had no idea what in the world a Spinosaurus was because it lived millions of years ago! The Rex isn't built to fight Spinosaurus, it was built to hunt the prey, its natural prey. Life is a system built so every species has its fair share of time to thrive. Life chose the dinosaurs to die. Jurassic Park is a terrible idea. Creating species that are extinct is destroying the system that has worked perfectly for billions of years. Humans are a failure. And just as soon, life may choose us for extinction. We had our chance, and we threw that out the window. If every species ...more

This Dinosaur is awesome. It was strong enough to take on anything it wanted and had little to fear. A very smart, caring predator that would have hunted in packs. Their scent of smell is about as strong as 100 bloodhounds duct taped together in the same direction. Very good Eyesight, puny yet very strong arms that are as long as a human child. A creature that would like to have. Unless you are me and you get your para killed by Rex mega packs on "The Isle."

Tyrannosaurus Rex wasn't the longest or the tallest predatory dinosaur, but it was the heaviest. Spinosaurus's estimated weight of around 20 tons doesn't seem to be right. Spinosaurus 's bones weren't as strong or thick as the thick bones of Tyrannosaurus. I think Spinosaurus was only around 7600 kg and 13,400 kg max. T.rex's bones are strong and it's tail alone weighed over a ton.I think T.rex weighed anywhere from 8400-16,000 kg.Spinosaurus wasn't a good hunter compared to Tyrannosaurus, it just probably caught fish and stole meals from Carcharodontosaurus, a t rex-sized hunter.T rexes worked in groups to hunt. Their prey ranged from the unique parasaurolophus, to the armoured ankylosaurus.

2 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.

Simply the best Dinosaur to ever walk the planet. What more amazing features can you ask out of a Dinosaur, the Spinosaurus was the largest land predator to walk the earth, it had strong arms and a huge and powerful mouth, heck! The spinosaurus could even swim! Sadly, the Spinosaurus is very underrated, many people choose T-rex or Velociraptor since the movies make them way to powerful. I hope the Spinosaurus will become more popular and more used in films.

The Spinosaurus is the largest carnivorous dinosaur and had an evolutionary advantage of being able to swim, the Spinosaurus has a massive tail measuring about 2 metres tall. The Spinosaurus could also defeat pretty much any carnivore you throw at it, even Tyrannosaurus Rex, Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus. It may not of had a bite force like Tyrannosaurus Rex but Spinosaurus could definitely defeat one.

The funny thing about this list is that almost all of the people who vote tyrannosaurus rex are uneducated about it. Tyrannosaurus Rex has extremely stubby arms, unlike the fairly long ones of the spinosaurus. An even more interesting fact about the spinosaurus is that if its bones weren't destroyed in a museum during a ww2 bombing, it would be the most popular.

This dinosaur was the last and largest of the meat and fish eating dinosaurs (even above T REX). This dinosaur is actually fast despite its size. Its teeth are not made for tearing chunks off of his prey (the dirty work is for the claws). The dinosaurs skull shows a crazy resemblelance to the skull of a crocodile (and/or) alligator it even has pressure sensors to hunt for fish without seeing the fish.

3 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.

Velociraptor is the Dino who's image changed more often than others. It was depicted as scaly but now we know it had feathers and that's significant because we thought all dinosaurs were scaly like reptiles but it turns out some of them have feathers like birds. That's why velociraptor should get 2nd place and Triceratops in 3rd.

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.

Despite its small size the velociraptor was pretty deadly it had a razor sharp claw and could kill a coyote in one bite! (Coyotes werent around back then I know) but you get what I mean

Velociraptors are the best! I have not only watched Jurassic Park / World but I have also done extensive research on it for assignments but also out of interest. I will never know as much about them as I want to, I also want to make clear that I am in no way and expert. But that does enter stop me loving them for being extremely smart and unique.

4 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.

Triceratops is a dinosaur that gets upstaged by Spinosaurus. It's been around the same time as T. rex and is one of few dinosaurs that might kill it. Triceratops also connected with audiences when one of them got sick. I think Triceratops should at least get 2nd place and Spinosaurus 5th because Spinosaurus lived most of it's time in water.

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.

Even if fake is really beautiful and powerful. The drill up the top is also said to be for display, but who knows what they might have used it for? Also, this terrific trice can also use its horns to cut down any vegetation that it might fancy. I give this Dino a 10/10!

It's three horns on it's top would not only protect it but also it can harm any other dinosaur. He deserves to be on top. Not on first because of T-Rex, not on second because the huge spinosaurus. But it needs to be at least third

5 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.

Ankylosaurus is a living tank. With armour plates harder than bone, the only way it could be killed is if it was struck on the leg and rolled over so it's underbelly is showing (it's only weak spot). Plus it's got a tail that could literally break a T-Rex's leg, by far the most balanced defensive and offensive dinosaur EVER! Super cool and dope

This dinosaur is armored like a tank and had a massive tail club and no predator could kill it when it was fully grown. Not even T. Rex or other ankylosaurs could kill it.

This guy is really tough. He has armor on his eyelids. He can go face to face with T-Rex maybe even spinosaurus. When he swings his club he can break t-Rex's leg bone. How his he number 29

The Ankylosaurus is the mullet of dinosaurs. It's cute and cuddly in the front but a mean, wrecking ball-swinging machine in the back.

6 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 think Stegosaurus should be in the top 3 because just because it had a small brain doesn't mean it was stupid. You shouldn't mess with it because of the thagomizer. The plates also helped showed carnivores who's boss so I would suggest putting stegosaurus in 3rd and Velociraptor in 4th.

Ow damn, ma boi steggy over here. He was my favorite since I was a kid. Those spikes on his back and tail are just so badass in my opinion. Together with the styracosaurus on a well-deserved second place, these are probably my favorite herbivores ever.

Stegasaurus has the smallest brain and known to have the smallest brain it has two brains. It is also the biggest show off, and had some of the most impressive structure ever found on an animal's body.

Not my favorite dino, but I had to vote because I do love this one! Clumsy and slow yet cute with those plates, what not to like?!

7 Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus is a genus of sauropod dinosaur that lived in North America during the Late Jurassic, about 154–153 million years ago.

If I would have a pet dinosaur this is it. Yes we know you would rather have Raptor or Triceratops but I'm going Brachio cause I can ride on his neck and will get an awesome view

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

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

Brachiosaurus had to eat up to 400 pounds of plants every day.

8 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've always loved this dinosaur! It was always my favorite and it is still my favorite now all because of that awesome horn. If it fills the horn with water it can let out a loud yell to warn its herd that a predator is coming. Also, after rewatching Jurassic Park III, I was reminded that parasaurolophuses are a lot bigger than they're made out to be and excellent at herding.

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.

I loved its horn and that's how it became my favorite. I loved their noises too. They also look cool.

9 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.

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 super underrated. To any of the people saying Carcharodontosaurus is overrated (how), this dinosaur hasn't been in a jp movie and hasn't been a main protagonist or antagonist, it hasn't been getting as much attention as T. rex, spino, velociraptor, and triceratops. This dinosaur needs more love. Definitely underrated

Carnotaurus and this guy were my two favorite dinosaurs as a kid. While I have grown into liking more dinosaurs, I still love Carcharodontosaurus being a badass animal, seriously, this animal is an asskicking machine.

Carcharodontosaurus a big relative to allosaurus. Carcharodontosaurus might be the 2nd biggest carnivore (it shows carcharodontosaurus fossil were bigger then giganotosaurus

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

Like how when you first learn about this one as a kid, you're just like "Oh this one has three fingers." And that's the only difference.

The apex threat of the Jurassic and a noble combatant for most dangerous big carnivorous dinosaurs fighting food competition like torvosaurus and ceratosaurus and prey like the stegosaurus. It also is incredibly fast! Compared to us at least. Ok bye

Actually, the allosaurus and the velociraptor are not the correct candidates for best hunter, the troodon is. The troodon was the actual velociraptor in Jurassic park. They are the ones who fight in packs and, are as smart as us

A cool dinosaur and a childhood dino to most especially when people watched walking with dinosaurs. It definitely deserved to be in jurassic world fallen kingdom.

The Contenders
11 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.

This is totally my opinion, but Utahraptor is the Serial Killer of dinosaurs. I mean, imagine you see a Velociraptor. That's scary enough. Okay, now... 5 or 6 Velociraptors? You are ready to either grab your shotgun, call the police, or run. But then, you see the Velociraptors magically growing... 3,4,5 times. At the end, the 6 foot long raptors turn into 30 foot long monsters. Bye-bye!
Utahraptor is the BEAST! My favorite dino ever

The most deadliest design ever made by mother nature... I would like to face a big carnivore like tyrannosaurus or giganotosaurus any day before facing this animal... Teeth+Arm+Foot Claw+ Speed+Brain+Feathers+Size... Ultimate combination...

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.

Basically what Jurassic Park thought was a Velociraptor, except a little bigger and covered in feathers. A pack of these could take down anything but a large sauropod.

12 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.

A Giganotosaurus... everybody mostly likes it because of the Indominus Rex. If you didn't know, I. Rex was mixed with more than just Velociraptor and T. Rex, it was also mixed with a Giganotosaurus ( explains how big the I. Rex was ), Majungasaurus, Carnotaurus, Rugops, and Therizinosaurus. It was also mixed with some non-dinosaurs. Like the Pit-Viper ( how it can sense heat ) * Everybody stares at me while I explain stuff -.- * Cuttlefish ( for camouflage ) Tree Frog ( added layer of stealth and camo ). That's all I'm going to say. * Everybody is asleep *

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.)

Actually, Tyrannosaurus rex, my favorite dinosaur, had a stronger bite force than giganotasaurus, and was almost twice as smart, even though both of these Dino's weren't that bright. The Tyrannosaurus rex is cooler, faster, smarter, and has a stronger bite than this Dino, which is probably why it's above it L.

13 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.

Like Carcharodontosaurus, this dinosaur was one of my favorites growing up. While it is my 5th favorite instead of number two before behind Carcharodontosaurus, I still love this dinosaur. Carnotaurus reminds me of myself, super fast, one of the fastest in my class and school.

Just like Carcharodontosaurus, it was one of my Favorite childhood dinosaurs Behind Carcharodontosaurus. Although it's not in my top 5 favorite dinosaurs anymore due to my aging, I still love this dinosaur.

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.

Best dinosaur ever since I first saw it in the Dinosaur animated film from 2000. Imagine a T-Rex with a rounded skull, bull horns over its eyes, spikes, scutes or osteoderms and even tinier arms!

14 Pachycephalosaurus

I don't really care if they used their domes for display or if they butted heads or flanks, still a really interesting animal.

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

I wish I was one of them so I cold knock anything down, plus, I wouldn't have gotten a concussion in the first place.

Great dino, should be in too ten.

15 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.

Although it didn't have a frill, it's still an awesome dinosaur, with those crests and the fact that it didn't have binocular vision.

This guy is like a velociraptor, but a little better. His frills make him look extra intimidating and his venom can blind opponents!

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.

My favorite dinosaur! It's pretty underrated though! Everyone I know is like " dilophosaurus sucks! T-Rex is awesome! ! T-Rex is life! " But really? T-Rex is SOOO overrated #dilophosaurus4life

16 Corythosaurus

Corythosaurus is a genus of hadrosaurid "duck-billed" dinosaur from the Upper Cretaceous Period, about 77�"75.7 million years ago. It lived in what is now North America. Its name means "helmet lizard", derived from Greek

17 Troodon Troodon is a dubious genus of relatively small, bird-like dinosaurs known definitively from the Campanian age of the Cretaceous period. It includes at least one species, Troodon formosus, known from Montana.

Troodon, just like it did 65 million years ago, lurks in the shadows...of society. But eventually there is no hiding from this killing machine. Possessing everything velociraptor was famous for taken to the extreme. Bigger, smarter, and even more deadly, these little demons were survivors. While they did go extinct(we hope) they were improvisational and clever, even feeding on fruit of plants if nothing else is available. But don't let that fool you. Troodon would still be much happier to rip off your face and snack on your heart than chew on leaves. It is only a matter of time before this crafty killer comes out of hiding and gets the credit it deserves from society.

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.

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.

Huh... It's like the Wagtail of dino world. And please don't tell me you lot don't like Wagtails! Troodons are the Wagtails of the dino world!

18 Oviraptor Oviraptor is a genus of small Mongolian theropod dinosaurs, first discovered by technician George Olsen in an expedition led by Roy Chapman Andrews, and first described by Henry Fairfield Osborn, in 1924. Its name is Latin for 'egg taker' or "egg seizer", referring to the fact that the first fossil specimen was discovered atop a pile of what were thought to be Protoceratops eggs, and the specific name philoceratops means "lover of ceratopsians", also given as a result of this find.

Babies are cute but adults would shriek at you so you would be irritated.

It is cute. One of the cutest dinosaurs I've ever seen.

19 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.

Deinonychus has a big curved claw on each toe for injure its prey, like in Jurrassic Park, velociraptor were smaller : half the size of deinonychus. Deinonychus is one of my favorite raptors

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.

20 Monolophosaurus

This is one of the most lit things ever on Earth. It looks kind of like a raptor.

It ate almost anything. It was super strong and super fast.

Mind set of a physco, Speed and body of a raptor, and epic teeth like a T-rex, this deserves more love.

An underrated awesome dinosaur.

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

I like Utahraptor and Deinonychus too, but Dakotaraptor appeals just a bit more to me. Bigger than Deinonychus, but with a more agile build than Utahraptor. Plus, it's from Hell Creek, meaning it rubbed shoulders with such dinocelebrities as Ankylosaurus, Triceratops, and T-rex! (By the way, Velociraptor is overhyped-only about the size of a coyote)

This guy competes with the more popular Utahraptor for "world's biggest raptor".

Looks like a hawk. Dinosaur variant of a hawk?

This guy is in the shadow of Utahraptor.

22 Therizinosaurus Therizinosaurus is a genus of very large therizinosaurid that lived in Asia during the Late Cretaceous period in what is now the Nemegt Formation around 70 million years ago.

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.

Well duh. They are my favorite dinosaur! Those huge claws weren't used for nothing, they were used to cut plants for food, and also to kill others. They weren't carnivores, but they were just as vicious.

The Joe Frazier of the dinosaur world. If I were a tyrannosaur, I would not want to try to kill one of these.

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

23 Microraptor

A gliding dinosaur like this makes pterodactyls look like nothing!

Why is this two times on this list?

It is a small creature

24 Lambeosaurus
25 Charonosaurus

It's just an Asian Parasaurolophus. Nothing special.

Like a fashion model or should I say Maudel Hah! Are sweet Maude doggy!

The very best Dino ever
