Jurassic Park's Jurassic World Films: Every Dinosaur ...

You''re staring down the mouth of a 6-ton dinosaur. Should you play dead? Can you outrun it? Can''t you just feed it a large fern frond?

You''d better know, because "Jurassic World Dominion" officially opens on June 10, and dinosaurs are on the rise this time.

Dominion may be the grand finale of a new series, depending on who you talk to, the sixth film of the Jurassic Park franchise and the third in the Jurassic World trilogy.

Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, and Sam Neill, actors from the franchise veteran in the new film starring Colin Trevorrow, are joined by Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard. The story begins shortly after Isla Nublar was destroyed in Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.

Dinosaurs are naturally sick and gloomy, leaving them in thetropics and deserts, swimming in frozen lakes, and hunting in the narrow streets of charming European towns. Humans today share the planet with history''s most fearsome creatures, but everybody''s hair still looks really good.

Youd better understand your Allosaurus from your Apatosaurus, your Stegasaurus from your Suchomimus, and your therapods from your sauropods. Do you know your herbivores from your carnivores, your fictional cloned animals from your real-world specimens?

Dino-enthusiasts: We do know that flying dinosaurs are not even dinosaurs. They are, more accurately, flying reptiles and possiblypterosaurs. While most Jurassic fans don''t worry about that too much, you''re welcome to check out Britannica''s full explanation.

According to sources, Jurassic World Dominion will introduce several animals we haven''t seen yet in the fictional series, and few favorites will return. So here''s a few insights into the Jurassic Park series'' vast lizards, amphibious animals, cloned carnivores, and benign behemoths, and what to look for in the new film. Don''t worry, no spoilers.


Allosaurus was a massive bipedal predator with dozens of sharp, serrated teeth. It was around 28 feet long. At the top of the food chain, allosaurus likely preyed on large herbivorous dinosaurs, and maybe even other predators.

In the Jurassic World Dominion, the Allosaurus is laying through a city.

This armored herbivore is protected from carnivores by thick plates on its back, two rows of spikes, big horns, and a powerful club tail. It was over 5 feet tall, up to 35 feet long, and weighs 6.5 tons. They were last seen in "Fallen Kingdom."

Universal Pictures

According to Fandom, an Apatosaurus is the very first group of dinosaurs seen on the island in Michael Crichton''s first novel. At some point in the "Dominion," an Apatosaurus is seen wandering in a snow-covered lumber yard.

This herbivore weighed 15 to 36 tons, measuring up to 15 feet high.

Baryonyx is referred to as a "heavy claw" and is referring to the animal''s big claw on the first finger. It was 25 to 33 feet long and measured between 1.2 and 1.7 tons.Baryonyx was discovered in 1983 in England.

Scientists believe the Baryonyx might have been bowed and eaten fish.


This enormous herbivore stood up to 70 feet high and weighed up to 56 tons. This Brachiosaurus is its protection. From the first film, this is the "veggie-saurus." Fossils were first discovered in Colorado in 1903.

In some editions of the first novel, this sauropod replaces the Apatosaurus.

Fossiles were discovered in Colorado and Utah as an herbivore, which was the most common of the huge sauropods in North America. Camarasaurus was roughly 49 feet long, with the largest species, C. supremus, which was nearly 75 feet long and weighing 51.8 tons.


A pair of these carnivores attack Richard Levine and kill his guide, Diego, at the beginning of "The Lost World." In a documentary, they are capable of changing skin color as a chameleon. Carnotaurus was about 9 feet high and 29 feet long. Look for it in Dominion.

Carnotaurus is a distinguished species found in a single well-preserved skeleton in Argentina. Its title means "meat-eating bull," an allusion to the animal''s bull-like horns.


In the second film in 1997, these small dinosaurs appeared briefly. A pack of several Compsognathus killed Dieter Stark.

Two well-preserved fossils of these little guys have been discovered by paleontologists, one in Germany in the 1850s and the other in France more than a century later. They are thought to have weighted between 1.8 and 7.7 pounds, about the size of a Chihuahua.


Specimens of this 27-foot-long herbivore have been discovered in Canada. Corythosaurus may have encountered a storm in the surrounding wood area, but one specimen was discovered with its last meal in its chest cavity, including conifer needles, seeds, twigs, and fruits.


Dilophosaurus was a size similar to a brown bear when he was young. In 1940, three skeletons were discovered in northern Arizona. The largest specimen measured around 880 pounds and was 23 feet long.

Scientists claim that the creature''s crest was intended for visual display, whether for attracting a mate or for temperature regulation. Dilophosaurusmay is not seen since the original film, but makes an appearance in Dominion.


Dimorphodon is the first proponent of the disease.

The 4-pound 3-foot-long Dimorphodons caught fire in "Jurassic World," where they were freed from the aviary by the Indominus rex and soon wreak havoc on the tourists along the Pteranodon.

It had a wingspan of around 5 feet, but scientists believe the animal was a rather bleak flyer. Dimorphodon was probably capable of flying for long periods and only landing on the air as a last resort. It probably ate insects or other small predators.


This fluffy duck-billed herbivore hangs out in herds and naps on conifers and other vegetation. The Edmontosaurus was 10 feet high and 39 feet long. It was last seen alive in Jurassic World.


Gallimimus is a type of theropod dinosaur born in Mongolia during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 70 million years ago. It was a narrator that would have had feathers.

Their name is "rooster mimic," although in the last film, they were more like dinosaur ostriches that could run as cheetahs. They weigh about 950 pounds and were up to 20 feet long.


Giganotosaurus was one of the most significant knownterrestrialcarnivores, with at least the size of T. Rex, so naturally youll see it in Dominion. In 1993, Giganotosaurus was estimated to have weigh more than 6.5 tons and was 41 feet long. It was likely the apex predator in its ecosystem that fed on smaller animals.


In the 1800s, you may recognize Iguanodon as the star of the Disney animated film Dinosaur. At least 38 Iguanodon specimens were discovered at a mine in Belgium.

Iguanodon were a variety of herbivores that could hold both four legs and two legs. They were up to 26 feet long and weighing more than 3 tons. They appeared in the 5-minute prologue to Dominion, which will be released in 2021, and is believed to be in a Cretaceous flashback.

Universal Pictures

The original Indominus rex, the genetically modified hybrid mutant dinosaur and the main antagonist in the 2015 film "Jurassic World," is pure fiction. In that fictional world, the carnivore stands up to 50 feet high, can run up to 30 mph, and its roar is as loud as a 747 taking off.

Universal Pictures

Indoraptor is another fictional hybrid based on Henry Wu''s "Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom" which was created by an Indominus rex and a Velociraptor.


This dog-sized, snub-nosed burrower is what National Geographic called the most humble badass of the Triassic, because it managed to survive the worst mass extinction the world has ever experienced.

Lystrosaurus, who has been referred to as a shovel lizard, looked like a cross between a pig and a lizard, and is the first Paleozoic and Triassic (pre-Jurassic) animal to make a film appearance in the series, and look for it in Dominion.


Fossils of these herbivores were first discovered on a highway in Sichuan, China, in 1952. They are well-known for their exceptionally long necks, which covered half their total body length of up to 115 feet. They stood 45 feet high and weighed 30 tons.

In "The Lost World," a Mamenchisaurus was briefly seen in a herd.

Universal Pictures

Metriacanthosaurus, a fleet-footed carnivore, has been crowned for its distinctively spined vertebrae. It once drew on the Jurassic plains, fed on other dinosaurs. It was 6 feet tall and weighed as much as a ton. It was an embryo in the original film.

This herbivore lived in Asia''s Cretaceous period. It walked on two legs, had a short front arms, a frill, and a beak-like mouth, perfect for snapping leaves and twigs. It was approximately two feet long, almost the size of a small dog. It was reportedly cut from an earlier film, but according to Fandom, it will be seen in Dominion.

This tiny-bodied, slender-footed therapod weighed around 172 pounds and would barely reach the shoulders of the average human. It was first discovered in Utah in 2013, and is now available on the film''s website.

Moros, the Greek god''s name, is understood to be the embodiment of an imminent catastrophe.


These apex predators of the cinematic prehistoric deep can feast on all kinds of ocean life. They open wide for any predator including Plesiosaurs and great white sharks. They are not actually dinosaurs, but in fact marine reptiles. The legs and feet were altered into flippers. The largest known species reached lengths up to 56 feet.

The Mosasaurus played a role in the defeat of Indominus rex, dragging it into the lagoon. The film''s Mosasaurus was criticized for claiming to be some of the largest known species at the end of Fallen Kingdom, and makes another appearance in Dominion, but we will not spoil it for you.


Nasutoceratops was a short, thick snout, a beak-like mouth, and large cattle-like horns. This herbivore was discovered in Utah. It was about 15 feet long and at least 1.5 tons.


Nipponosaurus was discovered on Sakhalin Island in Russia, a region of Japan when the immature specimen was discovered in 1934. It was about 13 feet long and lived around 80 million years ago.


In 1900, Ornitholestes was a bipedal carnivore, known only from a single partial skeleton with a badly crushed skull discovered at the Bone Cabin Quarry near Medicine Bow, Wyoming. It was believed to have feathers. It weighed six feet and was about 27 pounds.


The Oviraptor, or "egg thief," was a relatively small dinosaur with about 5 feet long and 70-80 pounds. It was first discovered in Mongolia in 1923 a skeleton found over a nest of 15 eggs. Paleontologists initially believed the creature was eating eggs from another dinosaur, but later learned that instead of having been egg-eating animals, Oviraptors appeared to actually brood and care for their nests.

Oviraptor is believed to be in Dominion.


In Montana, South Dakota, and Wyoming, the remains of this herbivore have been discovered. It is primarily known from a single skull and a few extremely thick skull roofs, a large, bony dome atop it, which was up to 10 inches long and which safely cushioned its tiny brain.

The Pachycephalosaurus was about 15 feet long and weighs 990 pounds.

A group of poachers is attempting to capture a wide spectrum of species, including the Pachycephalosaurus, but when animals are freed from containment, the Pachycephalosaurus is found and charged against the hunters.

These were herbivores with strong cheek teeth to help them chew tough, fibrous plants. Pachyrhinosaurus was discovered in Alberta, Canada, in 1946. Its long-nosed lizard was called "thick-nosed lizard." Instead of horns, their skulls bore big, flattened bosses; a large boss over the nose and a smaller one over the eyes. It was approximately 26 feet long.


This 2-ton crested, duck-billed dinosaur is famous for its bizarre head adornments, which at its largest forms a long, curved tube that is reaching upward and back from the skull. It might have been intended to for visual recognition of both species and sex, acoustic resonance, and temperature regulation.

In "Fallen Kingdom," you may rememberParasaurolophusroaming the Gallimimus Valley in herds, using its elongated, tube-like crest to emit haunting cries.

According to Fandom, the sheep in Dominion are part of another herd who has an interaction with Owen.


These fish eaters have wingspans of over 20 feet. They are actually pterosaurs, rather than dinosaurs.

When Dr. Alan Grant and the others entered the bird cage, they became very touching and attacked. It makes a brief appearance in Dominion.

Have no doubt you will see Pyroraptors in the new film, although it demonstrates them as much bigger. The feathered, bird-like dinosaur was roughly 8 feet long but only knee-high, and had long curved claws 2.5 inches long and at least two known teeth (the picture uses a creative license.) Remains of Pyroraptor were discovered in southern France following a forest fire in 1992.

fossils discovered in Texas in 1971 indicate that Quetzalcoatlus had a wingspan of over 33 feet and stood 18 feet high. These creatures had unusually long, stiffened necks. Their name comes from Quetzalcoatl, the Aztec''s feathered serpent god. Look for it in "Dominion."

Universal Pictures

After the site of its discovery, the hard-headed Sinoceratops is instantly recognizable for its skull, which can be up to 10 inches wide. Its snout and skull are covered with small knobs. The name of its type species, Sinoceratops zhuchengensis, means "Chinese horned face from Zhucheng."

Sinoceratops, an herbivore, stood over 6 feet high, 19 feet long, and measured two tons. It appeared in Fallen Kingdom.


Spinosaurus, the largest of all known carnivorous dinosaurs, was about as large as or even larger than Tyrannosaurus. Its body was up to 59 feet long and weighed over 20 tons. It''s distinctive spines grew to over five feet long and likely formed a slew of fat, although some scientists believe it had been a stew of fat. It ate fish and probably hunted both terrestrial and aquatic prey, although evidence suggests that it lived both on land as

Spinosaurus was then incorporated into the franchise for the third film, which includes the main antagonist, along with the Velociraptor. It didn''t make the cut for Dominion.


The recognizable 6-ton Stegosaurus was a small-brained herbivore with 17 bony plates along its spine, and a powerful spiked tail that might be used for display or for controlling body temperature. The plates, according to fans, may also be used for display or for controlling body temperature. Stegosaurus makes an appearance in the new film. The creators used the voice of a sea lion to create the dinosaurs'' haunting cry.

Universal Pictures

Fossils have been discovered in the western United States. It is an herbivore that stands roughly 4.5 feet high. The name "Styx devil" in Latin is used. Fandom claims that Stygimoloch does appear in Dominion.


The Suchomimus likely had a diet of mostly fish. It grew up in what is now Niger, Africa. It had spines that may have held up some kind of low crest or sail of skin. It was also mentioned in a couple of films, but it was not seen, though it appeared on the Jurassic World website.


In the first film, a slow-moving, long-necked, high browser, and fossils indicate that this enormous creature was up to 33 feet long and 16 feet tall. The first remains of Therizinosaurus were discovered in 1948 in the Mongolian Gobi Desert. Look for it covered in feathers.

Universal Pictures

Triceratops was an herbivore whose head was its most imposing feature. It measured four to five feet across and was decorated with impressive horns and a head plate. It used its horns a short one above its mouth to charge predators, such as T. rex. They probably were also used in mating rituals.

Triceratops has an underlying structure like the rhinoceros and is one of the most recognizable of all dinosaurs in the first film. In the first film, Ellie Sattler and Dr. Harding took care of the film.


Tyrannosaurus was once considered one of the most famous dinosaurs in the "Jurassic Park" series, which is now western North America. Scientists are examining it now that T. rex had feathers on at least parts of its body.

Scientists believe this powerful predator might eat up to 500 pounds of meat in one bite. T. rex prey, including Triceratops and Edmontosaurus, suggests it crushed and broken bones as it ate, and broken bones have been discovered in its dung. It stood up to 20 feet high and 40 feet long, weighing as much as 9 tons.

Without T. rex, it wouldn''t be a proper "Jurassic World" film.


Velociraptor is described as seven feet high, much larger than its actual width in real life; in reality, it was roughly the size of a turkey. However, this bipedal, feathered carnivore was no turkey; it is thought to have been used to combat and disembowel prey. Fossils have been discovered in Mongolia. Its name means "swift seizer."

Velociraptor was one of the most commonly seen dinosaurs on the islands. Throughout the film series, they were shown to be the most intelligent and one of the most vicious of all the dinosaurs, often shown hunting in packs. Look for it in "Dominion."
