Top 10 Scariest Dinosaurs


The Top Ten

1 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.

When you really think about it this thing is SCARY! It's the tallest carnivore known to walk planet earth. It can grow to 30 ft in height and about 60 ft in length! Yes, maybe Spinosaurus isn't the strongest dinosaur and maybe he doesn't have the bite force like the Tyrannosaurus rex does, but I do know that the spinosaurus is fast and has long SHARP claws that could snatch you, unlike the T rex. The T rex can't swipe you and snatch you because he has tiny arms. So, the spinosaurus has sharp claws, long arms, can run fast, and can swim. That's a lot of good things, because of those good things I think that the spinosaurus is the scariest dinosaur. Now I should be thankful that this ABSOLUTELY SCARY creature doesn't roam the earth anymore.

I DO not know why this African dinosaur died out even though the climate stayed almost the same in Africa after the extinction.

A definite fan-favorite and I like it too for being truly unique, but not exactly that scary for first place. - CrimsonShark

I love spinosaurus

2 Tyrannosaurus Rex 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 more.

This list is a joke, considering that T. rex is only at 6th. The King definitely deserves first place (Or second to Utahraptor at least) because let's be honest, Tyrannosaurus has the most powerful bite of any land animal that ever lived.

And that's not all. Tyrannosaurus had a phenomenal sense of smell and it's eyesight is 13 times greater than a human's (In turn, it's higher than a hawk). Not to mention Tyrannosaurus was surprisingly fast for its size and it's bad ass, terrifying appearance. And lastly, it may have hunted in packs... - CrimsonShark

To those who say spinosaurus it's only biggest because of their sails it only hunts in water has a weak bite and cannot fight some things placed lower without getting eaten in the first 10 minutes

So scary t rex opening its jaws in front of you and you try not to move. even though there's no evidence of t rexes vision based on movement STILL SUSPENSE!

3 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 would be scared if this dinosaur was charging at me, even though its arms were even tinier than T-rex's - SharkLover12

Bro carnotaurus had small arms which were smaller then the t.rexes arms but still my favorite dino

At the dinosaur ride in Disney animal kingdom this thing was huge. For one thing it means meat eating bull and it has long arm to snatch you. A the horns it’s like a devil dinosaur definitely SCARY.

4 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. V 1 Comment
5 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.

Utahraptor wasn't that scary, it only jumped and kicked with its claws!

Utahraptor was deadly.its claws were huge,12 inches long,and it hinted in packs

6 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.

Creepy one... - UnderTaler

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

Much smarter and faster than T. rex

8 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.
9 Sarcosuchus
10 Troodon 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.

The Contenders

11 Ceratosaurus Ceratosaurus

Ceratosaurus was a medium sized dinosaur that grew up to about 25 feet. Ceratosaurus had a small horn on it's nose, most likely to show dominance. It was a slow carnivorous dinosaur that hunted anything from lizards to small saurapods.

12 Nyctosaurus Nyctosaurus Nyctosaurus is a genus of pterodactyloid pterosaur, the remains of which have been found in the Niobrara Formation of the mid-western United States, which, during the late Cretaceous Period, was covered in an extensive shallow sea.
13 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.
14 Metriacanthosaurus

Metriacanthosaurus means "Moderately- spined lizard". It lived around the upper Oxford Clay of England, and lived in the mid Jurassic Period (about 160 million to tears ago). This Therapod grew up to 26 feet long and 6 feet tall, making it a medium sized carnivore weighing at 2,000. pounds.

15 Baryonyx Baryonyx


16 Deinonychus Deinonychus

This is one of the scariest animals that ever lived! It lived in the Cretaceous period and it hunted in packs, which means a pack of Deinonychus' could eat a whole grown Argentinosaurs!

17 Pterodactyl
18 Suchomimus Suchomimus Suchomimus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur with a crocodile-like skull that lived between 125–112 million years ago, during the Aptian to early Albian stage of the Cretaceous period in Niger, Africa.

Suchomimus lived in North Africa and mainly ate fish but could adapt to land as well. Suchomimus' main weapons were the deadly claws. Its teeth were designed to grip and once it grabs on, there's no escape...
