“An Albertosaurus has just been successfully incubated. That’s great work on your part. And for now, let’s hope it isn’t too hungry.”
– Claire Dearing
Allosaurus, an imposing dinosaur, ranks among the most formidable creatures to have traversed the Earth. Weighing up to two and a half tons and measuring approximately 12 meters in length, it dominated as the apex predator during the Late Jurassic period. With its massive skull, Allosaurus boasts rows of large, serrated teeth designed for tearing flesh, while its long and powerful tail aids in maintaining balance.
The initial official discovery of Allosaurus fossils occurred in 1877 when Othniel Charles Marsh stumbled upon fragments of an unknown dinosaur in Colorado. The unearthed fossils differed so significantly from any previously identified dinosaur remains that Marsh named the creature Allosaurus, signifying a “different lizard.” Two years later, additional fossils were found by H. F. Hubbell. However, it wasn’t until 1908, after Cope’s passing, that the near-complete skeleton’s exceptional quality was fully recognized. Over the years, thousands of Allosaurus fossils have been unearthed, making them among the most frequently discovered dinosaur remains.
Around 150 million years ago, Allosaurus inhabited the forests and floodplains of the western United States, particularly in regions such as Utah and Colorado. It coexisted with numerous other dinosaur species and primarily fed on large herbivores like Stegosaurus and Apatosaurus.
