Leaellynasaura amicagraphica by CamusAltamirano
Leaellynasaura amicagraphica
Name: "Leaellyn lizard"
Length: 2 m
Height: 1 m
Weight: 250 kg.
Diet: Herbivore
Time: Early Cretacic
Location: Australia


Leaellynasaura amicagraphica was a tiny ornithopod from the Early Cretaceous of Victoria (perhaps a juvenile because of its small size). During the Early Cretaceous southeast Victoria lay south of the palaeo-Antarctic Circle, and Leaellynasaura may have had special adaptations to thrive at such high latitudes. Once thought to be a hypsilophodontid, the position of Leaellynasaura within Ornithopoda is currently unresolved.

Allosaurus fragilis by CamusAltamirano
Allosaurus fragilis
Name: “different lizard”
Length: 8.5-12.5 m
Height: 5 m
Weight: 2.5 tons
Diet: carnivore
Time: Jurassic (155-145 MYA)
Location: North America


Allosaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived 155 to 145 million years ago, in the late Jurassic period. The name Allosaurus means “different lizard” and is derived from the Greek allos (“different, strange”) and sauros (“lizard”). The first remains that can definitely be ascribed to this genus were described in 1877 by Othniel Charles Marsh. As one of the first well-known theropod dinosaurs, it has long attracted attention outside of paleontological circles, and has been a lead dinosaur in several films and documentaries.

Allosaurus was a large bipedal predator with a large skull, equipped with dozens of large, sharp teeth. It averaged 8.5 meters (30 ft) in length, though fragmentary remains suggest it could have reached over 12 meters (39 ft). Relative to the large and powerful hindlimbs, its three-fingered forelimbs were small, and the body was balanced by a long, heavy tail. It is classified as an allosaurid, a type of carnosaurian theropod dinosaur. The genus has a complicated taxonomy, and includes an uncertain number of valid species, the best known of which is A. fragilis. The bulk of Allosaurus remains have come from North America’s Morrison Formation, with material also from Portugal and possibly Tanzania. It was known for over half of the 20th century as Antrodemus, but study of the copious remains from the Cleveland Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry brought the name Allosaurus back to prominence, and established it as one of the best-known dinosaurs.

Zupaysaurus rougieri by CamusAltamirano
Zupaysaurus rougieri
Name: "devil lizard"
Length: 3.5 m
Height: 1.7 m
Weight: 250 kg.
Diet: Carnivore
Time: Early Jurassic
Location: Argentina

Zupaysaurus was a medium-sized theropod. An adult skull measured approximately 450 mm (18 in) in length, suggesting a body length of approximately 4 m (13 ft) from its snout to the tip of its tail. Other estimates suggest that Zupaysaurus was at best 5.5 m (18 ft) long and weighed 200 kg (441 lb) at most. Like all theropods, Zupaysaurus walked only on its hindlegs, leaving its forelimbs free to grasp its prey. The length of the neck bones recovered suggests that this genus has a rather long neck. Like the coelophysoids Zupaysaurus has a kink in its snout. It is estimated that Zupaysaurus had 24 teeth and an intermandibular hinge is present in the lower jaw. Only one specimen of Zupaysaurus is known to science. The holotype specimen was designated PULR-076, which consists of a nearly complete skull which was very well preserved, the right shoulder girdle, the lower right leg and ankle, and twelve vertebrae from the neck, back, and hips. Additional material of a smaller individual found at the same site may or may not belong to Zupaysaurus.

Brachiosaurus altithorax by CamusAltamirano
Brachiosaurus altithorax
Name: “arm lizard”
Length: 26 m
Height: 8 m
Weight: 15-75 tons
Diet: herbivore
Time: Jurassic (160-140 MYA)
Location: North America

Brachiosaurus was a large plant eater. This herbivore fed on conifers, ginkgos and cycads. It was believed to have been between 80 and 85 feet long and weighed between 33 and 88 tons! Brachiosaurus was 23 feet tall, at the hips and stood between 40 and 50 feet tall at the head. The dinosaur lived during the late Jurassic period, about 156 million years ago. The fossilized remains of the Brachiosaurus have been discovered in Colorado, USA, Tanzania and Portugal.
