Torvosaurus at Thanksgiving Point 1 Prev Next "savage lizard" Late Jurassic Period (about 150 million years ago) A large meat-eater, Torvosaurus is not as well known as Allosaurus but lived during the same time and was just as deadly. It closely resembles certain dinosaurs from Europe, such as Megalosaurus. Torvosaurus is found in a layer of rock called the Morrison Formation in Colorado and Wyoming.
Spinosaurus: Pending further discoveries, Spinosaurus is the current record-holder in the "world's largest carnivorous dinosaur" category: full-grown adults outweighed Tyrannosaurus Rex by about a ton and Giganotosaurus by about half a ton. Since so few Spinosaurus fossils are extant, it's possible that other individuals were even larger!
The Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center houses dinosaurs, marine reptiles, flying reptiles and fish of North America's Late Cretaceous period. They have the world's largest Daspletosaurus on display, the world's only Pachycephalosaurus, and the world's first 3-D giant Xiphactinus. #Colorado #Dinosaurs
