Allosaurus lived about 156 million years ago during the Late Jurassic. This carnivorous dinosaur lived in semi-arid areas, flat alluvial plains, coniferous and tree fern forests and fern savannas. At the top of their food chain, the Allosaurus was the top predator of all, meaning that they themselves had no predators.
Allosaurus' sharp teeth made it easy to attack even other large dinosaurs. As an aggressive carnivore, it ate any dinosaur it could find, including Stegosaurus, which also lived in its time.
Allosaurus had three fingers on their arms to help them tear flesh and walked on two legs and used a long, muscular tail for balance. They are the great-great-grandparents of the T-Rex.
Now we know where T-Rex gets his attitude from.
Allosaurus comes from the Greek word "allos", which meant different, and "Saurus" which meant lizard. They weighed 2.5 to 5 tons, and 28 to 40 feet long. Allosaurus had a large head, a short neck and a pair of horns on the top of the head. They were fully grown and sexually mature by the age of 15 years.
These dinosaurs had an average lifespan of 25 to 30 years.
Allosaurus had D-shaped teeth that eventually narrowed, shortened and became more curved as they grew from the back of the mouth. They had 14-17 teeth that resembled serrations, with jagged edges and were continually shed and replaced.
The Allosaurus was able to protect itself by being the fearsome and biggest predator of its time. They are the last bullies in the environment that no one dares to fight.
Great question, colors make it easier for us to imagine an image we have never seen, but in the case of the Allosaurus, no one knows.
I hear you, it's a little disappointing, but who knows if someone out there is studying the color of the Allosaurus, let's keep waiting.
Allosaurus comes from the Greek word "allos", which meant different, and "Saurus" which meant lizard.
According to one study, the Allosaurus can run up to 21 mph, which is pretty good for catching some snacks.
The Allosaurus throne is not only on land, but also in the waters. Of course, these predators can swim in deeper waters to get some vitamin from the sea.
