The Apatosaurus, whose name means "deceptive lizard" in Greek was one of the largest land
animals ever. For many years, this dinosaur was sometimes called Brontosaurus.
The Apatosaurus was one of the largest land creatures that have ever lived. They were 20-27
metres in length, 3-5 metres in height and weighed an enormous 30-35 tonnes! This is over 6 times
heavier than an elephant! They walked on four legs with a big muscular body, but a much smaller
head attached on a long neck. They held their tail up a little above the ground as they moved. The
main purpose of this tail was to make sure that the dinosaur would not fall over due to its heavy long
neck. It was also used for defence against predators. Their heads were long and narrow.


















Brachiosaurus (IPA: /ˌbɹækiəˈsɔɹəs/) meaning "Arm Lizard", from the Greek
brachion/βραχιων meaning 'arm' and sauros/σαυρος meaning 'lizard', was a genus of sauropod
dinosaur which lived during the Late Jurassic Period. It was thus named because its forelimbs were
longer than its hind limbs. One of the largest animals ever to walk the earth, it has become one of
the most famous of all dinosaurs and is widely recognised worldwide.
Brachiosaurus is often considered to be the largest dinosaur known from a relatively
complete fossilized skeleton. However, the most complete specimens, including the Brachiosaurus in
the Humboldt Museum of Berlin (excavated in Africa, the tallest mounted skeleton in the world), are
members of the species B. brancai which some scientists consider to be part of a separate genus,
Giraffatitan. The holotype material of the type species, B. altithorax. includes a sequence of seven
posterior dorsal vertebrae, sacrum, proximal caudal vertebra, coracoid, humerus, femur and ribs:
enough from which to estimate size.















Corythosaurus /kɒ'rɪ.θɒ.sʊə.rʊs/ meaning 'helmet lizard' because of the shape of its crest
(Greek korythos meaning 'helmet' and sauros meaning 'lizard') was a duck-billed dinosaur genus
from the Upper Cretaceous Period, about 80 million years ago. It lived in what is now North America.
Jurassic Park III is a 2001 American science fiction film and the third of the Jurassic Park
franchise. It is the only film in the series that is neither directed by Steven Spielberg (though
produced by his production company, Amblin Entertainment) nor based on a book by Michael
Crichton, though numerous scenes in the movie were taken from Crichton's two books, Jurassic Park
and The Lost World. The film takes place on Isla Sorna in the Central American pacific coast, the
island from the second film, after a divorced couple tricks Dr. Alan Grant into helping them find their
son.
After the success of Jurassic Park, Joe Johnston asked Steven Spielberg if he could direct the
film adaptation of The Lost World, the sequel to Jurassic Park. While Spielberg wanted to do the
project, he promised to give the helm of the second sequel to Johnston. Spielberg stayed involved
with the film by becoming the executive producer. Three years after the release of The Lost World,
production of the third film began in August 2000. Although a commercial success, the film was
released to mixed reviews.















Deinonychus (Template:IPA2) meaning 'terrible claw' (Greek δεινος meaning
'terrible' and ονυξ/ονυχος meaning 'claw') was a genus of 2-3 metre long (7-10 feet),
carnivorous dromaeosaurid dinosaur from the early Cretaceous Period (Aptian - Albian
faunal stage, 121 to 98.9 Mya). Its name refers to the unusually large, sickle-shaped talon on
the second toe of each hind foot, which was probably held retracted while the dinosaur
walked on the third and fourth toes. It was commonly thought that Deinonychus would kick
with the sickle claw to slash at its prey but recent tests on reconstructions of similar
Velociraptor talons suggest that the claw was used to stab, not slash As in other
dromaeosaurids, the tail was stiffened by a series of elongated bones and bone processes.
This might have given Deinonychus greater balance and turning ability, and lends it its
specific name, D. antirrhopus, which means 'counterbalancing'.
Paleontologist John Ostrom's study of Deinonychus in the late 1960s revolutionised
the way scientists thought about dinosaurs, igniting the debate on whether or not dinosaurs
were warm-blooded. Before this, the popular conception of dinosaurs had been one of
plodding, reptilian giants. Ostrom noted lightweight bones and stiffened tendons which
revealed an active, agile predator.
The remains of Deinonychus have been recovered from the Cloverly Formation of
Montana and Wyoming and in the Antlers Formation of Oklahoma,in North America.
Additionnally, teeth found in the Arundel Clay Facies (Aptian), of the Potomac Formation on
the Atlantic Coastal Plain of Maryland may be assigned to the genus.
In both the Cloverly and Antlers Formation, Deinonychus remains have been found closely
associated with those of the ornithopod Tenontosaurus. Teeth discovered associated with
Tenontosaurus specimens, imply it was hunted or at least scavenged upon by Deinonychus.











Edmontosaurus (ed-MON-toh-sawr-us) meaning 'Edmonton lizard' (after where it was
found, in southern Alberta in what used to be called "Lower Edmonton" in the Horseshoe Canyon
Formation, Alberta, Canada and Greek sauros meaning lizard) was a hadrosaurid dinosaur genus
from the Maastrichtian, the last stage of the Cretaceous Period, 71-65 million years ago. A fully-
grown adult could have been up to 9 metres (30 feet) long and some of the larger species reached
13 metres (43 feet). Its weight was in the region of 3.5 tonnes, making it one of the largest
hadrosaurids. It resembled Maiasaura in its shape and posture, though the size was quite different
between the two genera.
