DINO-A-DAY #43: Allosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Allosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: AL-uh-SAWR-us
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Jurassic
DISCOVERED: Colorado, 1869
FUN FACT: One theory of Allosaurus’ predation habits is that it snuck up behind potential prey and used its upper jaw like a hatchet. Ouch.
