Dinosaurs world 3
This is the list of all dinosaurs (and spoken facts) kids will have to discover in this iPad / iPhone game.
Special thanks to Raul Lunia (Dinoraul) for his great 3D dinosaurs models!
Allosaurus means "different lizard" because its skeleton is different from that of other dinosaurs from the same era.
The Allosaurus can grab prey with its big arms and three clawed fingers.
Archaeopteryx means "ancient wing" because we think this was one of the first birds to have existed.
The Archaeopteryx is a small, feathered dinosaur which has to climb trees and throw itself from the branches to take flight.
Centrosaurus means "pointed lizard" because they have a small row of little horns all along their frills.
The Centrosaurus is a herbivore and lives in a herd several dozen strong.
Compsognathus means "dainty jaw". This dinosaur feeds on lizards and insects.
The Compsognathus is a very small dinosaur and runs very fast.
Dilong means "Emperor dragon" in Chinese.
The Dilong is very small but is one of the ancestors of the enormous Tyrannosaurus!
Dilophosaurus means "two-crested lizard".
The Dilophosaurus has very thin teeth and prefers to use its claws to kill prey.
Diplodocus means "double beam" because of the shape of some of the bones in its tail.
The Diplodocus uses this long tail like a whip to defend itself!
Estemmenosuchus means "crowned crocodile" because the horns on its head look like a crown!
The Estemmenosuchus is the size of a bull and is thought to eat mainly grass. It lived before the dinosaurs.
Giganotosaurus means "giant southern lizard".
The Giganotosaurus is bigger than the Tyrannosaurus and its head is twice as big as that of an Allosaurus!
Gigantspinosaurus means "giant-spined lizard" because it has enormous spines on its shoulders.
The Gigantspinosaurus is the size of a man and eats plants.
Lambeosaurus means "Lambe's lizard"; Lambe is the name of the person who discovered it.
The Lambeosaurus is enormous and can move around on two or four legs.
Maiasaura means "caring mother lizard" because it looks after its young so well.
Maiasaura live in big herds and stick together to defend nests from predators.
Majungasaurus means "Mahajanga lizard" after the name of the region of Madagascar where it lived.
Majungasaurus are cannibals; sometimes they even try to eat each other!
Mononykus means "one claw" because it has just one claw at the end of its arm!
The Mononykus is a small dinosaur that runs very fast and feeds off small animals.
Ouranosaurus means "brave lizard".
The Ouranosaurus has a large "sail" on its back which it uses to regulate its temperature.
Pachyrhinosaurus means "thick-nosed lizard".
The Pachyrhinosaurus is enormous and instead of horns on its skulls it has a huge, hard boss.
Prestosuchus means "fast crocodile" and it lived before the dinosaurs.
Thanks to its big paws, the prestosuchus could cover ground fast to chase other animals.
Psittacosaurus means "parrot lizard" because it has a beak like a parrot's.
The Psittacosaurus is a little dinosaur but it is part of the same family as the mighty Triceratops!
The name "Quetzalcoatlus" is a reference to an Aztec feathered serpent god.
The Quetzalcoatlus is more than 15 metres long; it is the biggest animal to have ever flown on Earth!
Rhamphorhynchus means "beak snout".
The Rhamphorhynchus catches fish with its long jaw by skimming the water's surface.
Stegoceras means "horned roof" because the top of its head is rounded.
The stegoceras looks like a mini pachycephalosaurus; it is no more than a metre high.
Suchomimus means "crocodile mimic" because its mouth looks strangely like that of a crocodile and it eats fish.
The Suchomimus looks a lot like its cousin, the Spinosaurus, but does not have spines along its back.
Torosaurus means "perforated lizard" because it has large holes in its frill.
The Torosaurus, like its close cousin the Triceratops, can cut through any vegetation with its powerful beak.
