Utahraptor

Yup still got these old Dino posts… enjoy the flashback to resources once used!

3 guesses where this dinosaur was found… and the first two don’t count! Yup, found in the 90’s in Utah, USA, this bipedal carnivore is thought to be one of the largest raptors. One of the dromaeosaurs, this lightweight dinosaur was potentially a warm blooded dinosaur and more like a mammal than most. I had a special sheet for us to fill in information about this carnivore from Activity Village HERE. With razor sharp teeth and massive claws this predator was quite the fearsome creature found in the Cretaceous period.

Suchomimus

Process is being made on catching up… but first… a look WAAAAY back at another dinosaur. 

 

We are enjoying the unusual dinosaurs lately. Suchomimus is another of these. This “crocodile mimic” is a carnivore and a piscivore (fish eater… a new term for us!!). This Cretaceous period predator was found in Africa. Only one incomplete skeleton has been found. It had long front arms to grab fish, a long snout and large claws… like a crocodile that could walk on two legs!!

Tylosaurus

Well shoot, no cute kid pics, but a good set of resources for an animal straight out of the cretaceous period and myself one step closer to a cleaned out draft folder!! Enjoy!

 

Dinosaurs are a staple in our homeschooling life… I think Emanuel is a life long addict to the world of the prehistoric. The Tylosaurus is a rather interesting ocean dweller. Considered to have born live babies and been an active carnivore It was far from the top of the food chain. Found in the shallow seas of what is now North America this Cretaceous period critter is quite the interesting character. This Mososaur “knob lizard” was not a dinosaur but lived along side of them.
