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.

This dinosaur looks very
Creepy. - TerryThebestsoccerplayer

I love spinosaurus

It is very good at swimming and it is the biggest carnivore

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

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.

Poor vision was never proved

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

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

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.

If you saw Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom then you know this guy. The horns and the angerness in its eyes are what I think makes this dinosaur place in top 3

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.

Look at dem legs!

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

Much scarier than the others when you look at science. This creature didn't have a strong bite Force like a T-Rex, but instead had incredible pressure tolerance and powerful neck muscles. Therefore it used its head like an axe smashing you until you couldn't run any more and died from shock and blood loss. Definitely worse than a quick and powerful bite from a Trex

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 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.
13 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.
14 Pterodactyl Pterodactyl

This is the most dangerous dinosour people think this is the missing
thunderbird they being looking for is the real or is this extinct.

15 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.

16 Baryonyx Baryonyx Baryonyx is a genus of theropod dinosaur which lived in the Barremian stage of the early Cretaceous Period, about 130–125 million years ago.


17 Achillobator
18 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!

19 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...

20 Arthropleura Arthropleura

The most terrifying arthropod ever to live... As long as a man is tall, it is the largest arthropod to roam our earth... If you don't vote... You will find this in a dark alley, on Friday 13th...

21 Mapusaurus Mapusaurus Mapusaurus was a giant carnosaurian dinosaur from the early Late Cretaceous of what is now Argentina and possibly Chile.

My favorite dinosaur looks similar to the Giganotosaurus, and Carcharodontosaurus. If those two are up there this should as well, it has a huge skull, and hunted the biggest dinosaurs.
