Dinosaur of the Day #72 - Majungasaurus



Majungasaurus is a dinosaur which lived approximately 70 million years ago during the Cretaceous Period. It was first discovered in 1896 by a French army officer along the Betsiboka River in Madagascar. It was then named Majungasaurus, a name which means “Majungha Lizard.”

This dinosaur was approximately 20 feet long and weighed around a ton. It was a bipedal predator that had small hands and a short snout with thickened bone on it. It also had a single small horn on top of its skull. It is known that this dinosaur was a carnivore and may have hunted many different types of dinosaurs at the same. It may have even hunted its own kind as has been shown by the fossil record. Fossils of this dinosaur have been found bearing the teeth of other Majungasaurus dinosaurs. This is the only direct evidence of cannibalism that has ever been attributed with direct evidence to a dinosaur species. Although to be fair, it may just have scavenged the already dead remains of other Majungasaurus.

An interesting fact about this dinosaur is that due to the pro ponderous of skeletal material, this dinosaur is currently one of the most studied dinosaurs of all time. It is believed to have been the apex predator of its ecosystem.

So, thoughts on this dinosaur? Is it worth including on a team? Tactics and suggestions? What changes would you make and anything else you can think of?


I relied on him when I first started the game. I mean 0-750 trophies he was my champion. As far as counter dinos go, he actually outclasses a lot of the rares in damage output. I remember having megalosaurus, majungasaurus, carnotaurus, tupandactylus, and lythronax and preferring majunga over all of them because of his swap in ability.

With all of that being said, he spawns like a weed in my local and sucks compared to dinos above rare tier. and I’m waiting for him to get a buff or better hybrid so I can use the 20k dna I have stored up. I want him to be good, but he’s an early game dino for now.


You forgot the fact that majungasaurus is cannibal

No, he got it right here.

OK, I just passed quick through the article, that’s probably why I didn’t saw that
