Taller than an elephant and the length of about three hippos, the “lion” of the Jurassic Period was hands down, Allosaurus. Though not as large as it’s yet-to-evolve cousin, T-Rex (nor its less famous closer relative, Acrocanthosaurus), this animal was a bit quicker on its feet and may have even hunted in packs. While it’s uncertain just how many species existed, the bulk of Allosaurus fragilis has been found here in the United States. In fact, it’s the most abundant predator excavated from the Morrison Formation and had likely been a stegosaurus’ worst nightmare. Though not as famous as the Cretaceous’ Tyrannosaurus Rex, it’s still a fairly well known dinosaur with several companies having issued replicas; the best of which I’ll be discussing today.
