Dinosaurs world

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!

Bambiraptor Bambiraptor
It was a child that found the first skeleton of a Bambiraptor and he named it Bambi, after the cartoon!
The Bambiraptor is one of the smallest dinosaurs and could run very quickly to catch its prey.
Brachiosaurus Brachiosaurus
Brachiosaurus means "lizard with arms" because its two front legs are much bigger than its two hind legs.
The Brachiosaurus is as tall as a 5-storey building.
Carnotaurus Carnotaurus
Carnotaurus means "meat-eating bull" because it has two small horns on its head.
The Carnotaurus has such small front legs that it probably did not use them.
Citipati Citipati
Citipati means "funeral pyre lord" in Mongol.
It is not yet known whether the Citipati was a bird or a dinosaur.
Corythosaurus Corythosaurus
Corythosaurus means "helmet lizard".
The Corythosaurus used to live in herds and used to escape by running away on its hind legs.
Dimetrodon Dimetrodon
Dimetrodon means "two measures of teeth".
The Dimetrodon is a reptile which lived before the dinosaurs and which was very ferocious.
Elasmosaurus Elasmosaurus
Elasmosaurus means "lizard with thin plates".
The Elasmosaurus had a very long neck with a very small head and fed on fish.
Euoplocephalus Euoplocephalus
Euoplocephalus means "well-armoured head".
In order to defend itself, the Euoplocephalus used to swing its tail like a hammer among its attackers' legs.
Gallimimus Gallimimus
Gallimimus means "chicken or rooster mimic".
The Gallimimus is also called the "ostrich dinosaur" because of its long legs which made it the fastest dinosaur.
Iguanodon Iguanodon
Iguanodon means "iguana's tooth".
With its large beak, the Iguanodon could cut the plants it fed on.
Lesothosaurus Lesothosaurus
Lesothosaurus means "lizard from Lesotho", the name of the African country where it was found.
The Lesothosaurus used to walk upright and could run very quickly to escape its predators.
Microraptor Microraptor
Microraptor means "little flyer".
The Microraptor is the smallest known dinosaur and the only one able to fly.
Pachycephalosaurus Pachycephalosaurus
Pachycephalosaurus means "thick-headed lizard".
With its thick skull, the Pachycephalosaurus used to fight in the same way as rams, by pushing with its head.
Parasaurolophus Parasaurolophus
Parasaurolophus means "near-crested lizard".
The long tube on the head of the Parasaurolophus allowed it to make a sound similar to that of a trombone.
Plateosaurus Plateosaurus
Plateosaurus means "flat lizard".
The Plateosaurus used to walk on four feet, but could stand upright to eat the leaves on the highest branches.
Protoceratops Protoceratops
Protoceratops means "first horned face".
The size of a sheep, the Protoceratops lived in herds and had a very powerful beak for cutting its food.
Pteranodon Pteranodon
Pteranodon means "toothless wing".
Despite its huge size, the Pteranodon did not weigh much more than a child because its bones were hollow.
Sauropelta Sauropelta
Sauropelta means "lizard shield".
Very large, the Sauropelta was unable to run: when in danger, it must have lain down on its stomach,
since its back was protected with its thick hide and long spikes.
Spinosaurus Spinosaurus
Spinosaurus means "spine lizard" because its back comprised a huge crest of spines.
The mouth of the Spinosaurus was similar to that of a crocodile and it probably ate mainly fish.
Stegosaurus Stegosaurus
Stegosaurus means "roof lizard" because, originally, it was thought that the plates on its back were horizontal and formed a sort of roof.
The long spikes at the tip of its tail allowed it to defend itself.
Styracosaurus Styracosaurus
Styracosaurus means "spiked lizard".
The very long horn on the Styracosaurus's nose and the spikes around its neck allowed it to defend itself.

Triceratops means "face with 3 horns".
Even the Tyrranosaurus did not dare to attack the Triceratops and its huge horns face on.

Tyrannosaurus Tyrannosaurus
Tyrannosaurus means "tyrant lizard" because it was the fiercest predator at that time.
The Tyrannosaurus is also called T-Rex, namely "the king of the tyrants".
Velociraptor Velociraptor
