Hello, id like to make my own dino of the day series, tho i may be unable to post everyday. So let us begin!
Our first dinosaur today is Utahraptor. Utah Raptors are the largest of the raptor group, and their name means Utah Thief. Utah Raptor hunted in groups, and fed on dinosaurs like hadrosaurs (or mainly medium sized hervibores). The Utah Raptor was 4.9 feet tall, and weighed as much as a polar bear. Thats all for today, i hope you enjoyed. Please tell me if any of this is wrong
There is very little evidence to no evidence saying that utahraptor actually hunted in packs
That is true, the only evidence i know is a dead hardosaur (that supposedly got weakened by a utahraptor pack, then killed by a bigger dino after the Raptors gave up
Note: if youre wondering why the last dino day was also today, its becauss my dino day series was supposed to start yesterday so im posting 2 in 1. Anyways, Today’s dino Is Spinosaurus. Spinosaurus lived in early-mid cretaceous. It mainly ate fish, but it may have hunted some other dinosaurs if it had to. The rival of this giant beast was the Charcharadontosaurus, who mainly ate land dinosaurs. In a fight, the e Charchar would probably be scared away by its size, but if not, it probably has the edge in combat… Even if it won, the deep cuts and blood loss will probably finish it off. Smaller predators may have ate the spinos food while it was distracted, but the spino would immediately kill on sight. Spino is also the biggest meat-eating being to exist so far… Thats all, please tell me if anything is Innacurate
Spinosaurus is no longer the largest carnivore, that award goes to Tyrannosaurus.
And um you forgot to mention it’s quadrupedal
A Carcharodontosaurus would have easily scared Spinosaurus
Even something like Kryptops would bully it
Why would these two animals be rivals? They filled different niches and lived different lifestyles so it’s unlikely they’d get into fight.
Spino is, I believe, the longest large theropod discovered. Not the biggest. That title goes to T. Rex, like @Jacelin_the_apato just mentioned.
Yeah, it’s likely that it’s a tar pit that several utahraptors got attracted to like the La Brea tar pits
Spino isn’t quadrupedal anymore unless if I missed something
Spino is the largest if you go off of length but in overall mass tyrannosaurus rex was larger
That’s a topic that’s still highly debated
Holy Guacamole i am so far off, i havent checked my spino facts in a long time, but thank you everyone for correcting me
There is a theory that spinosaurus may have hunted herbivores during drouts, thus them meeting up. I only got this information from other scientists so my apologies
It changes all the time between debunked and proofen like sigilmassasaurus changes from distinct to synonymous
Really? I’m pretty sure that Spinoaurus was updated to look like this nowadays; bipedal, but with short hind limbs.
