Jump to: navigation, search

He is one of the most known dinosaurs. He became the famous Jurassic meat eater. His arms were muscular and he had serrated teeth, ripped flesh faster than a chainsaw. They were build for speed.

Feeding the family[edit | edit source]

As a baby, it ate lizards, mammals and insects. As a kid, it ate other baby dinosaurs. As a teenager, it ate anything smaller than itself. As an adult, it ate everything.

Hunting[edit | edit source]

They used to hunt in the Northern America about 150 million years ago. It hunted mostly small plant eaters, for example Camptosaurus ; sometimes giant Sauropods like the famous Diplodocus. They often hunted in group but sometime hunted on their own.

Anatomy[edit | edit source]

The Allosaurus was good for hunting. Strong, grasping claws on its front legs, razor-sharp teeth, and flexible jaw made him a really good predator.

He had flexible jaws to enlarge his mouth for a deadlier bite. And he had sharp claws with three fingers ended like hooks, and maybe they used their hooks like grappling hooks.
