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.
Now for our video! Walking with Dinosaurs thanks to WWDinosaursLive.
Found in South America, the Carnotaurus had a rather intimidating visage. The flesh eating bull had dangerous horns on its head and a yen for meat. Found in the Cretaceous period, this carnivore had near useless front arms and hands but powerful legs. Though there HAS been some debate as to what it DID eat… with both carnivore and herbivore teeth.
We found this dinosaur in our book
But, onto the videos… and we have an ADORABLE one that we had to watch TWICE! You will have to go TO youTube to see this animated short HERE. Our second video was much shorter…
There was also an interesting RADIO piece about our carnivore with CBC.ca (back to my roots)… Quirks and Quarks… a show I used to listen to with my dad as a child! You can listen in HERE.
Woo this is a long sitting still post. I figure I might as well post these up!!! So while I recoup from a weekend of packing a friend to move, Memorial Day family time and other random over scheduling enjoy some dinosaur information that we did up way too too long ago with our dino fiend!
Emanuel has moved his interest to the oceans with marine reptiles and their unique visages. The Schonisaurus is a rather interesting looking carnivore. Found in the Triassic period it has an amazing number of fossils laying around. With razor sharp teeth and an elongated face this massive creature would have dominated the oceans though potentially was NOT a fast moving predator…
And now for videos… Check out The Largest Carnivorous Predator in Prehistory. Catch a glimpse of our massive marine reptile on the commercial for 3D Sea Rex.
