Stegosaurus can defend it's self from Allosaurus but if Allosaurus evolves to Tyrannosaurus Rex but most people call them T-Rex for short. When T-Rex fights Stegosaurus, the battle is to the death and who wins the battle gets the turf. Stegosaurus has 17 bone plates and 4 spikes on its tail. The three places where its bone plates are its neck, back, and tail. Stegosaurus likes to eat plants like all the other plant-eaters.

Small and Deadly Raptors

Utahraptor is the second largest raptor in the world and he was about 21 feet long. It had one toe that was extremely sharp that was 1' and 3" long. This toe made it easier for them to kill their prey because it would run after its prey then jump on it and stab it with its' 2 sharp toes. They only travel in packs when their babies hatch.

Deinonychus hunts in packs and is 10 feet long. Since they hunt in packs, it makes it easier for them to kill dinosaurs like the Tenontosaurus. With its razor sharp teeth and claws, it makes it easier for them to bite through other dinosaurs' flesh. It has feathers on itself. It has chicken like legs and hands. The Deinonychus has a long tail for balance in the air.

Microraptor is very unique because it has 2 sets of wings, its front (its arms) and its back (the legs). It loves to eat bugs, small reptiles and small mammals. It has small sharp claws and small sharp teeth they used it tear its prey apart.

Spinosaurus has a long sail on its back that was 6 feet and 6 inches tall. It has a long mouth, long arms, curvy claws, sharp teeth, and long tail. It has the ability to swim and the only thing you see when it swims is its sail. Its favorite thing to eat is fish and other times it eats other dinosaurs. Spinosaurus is 49 feet tall which makes it 9 feet taller than T-Rex!

Saber Cats

Saber-Tooth Tigers also known as Saber Cats, hunted Toxodon; an early antelope. They had 2 seven inch saber teeth they used to bite into their victims neck. If the Saber Cats left any food behind, the Terror Bird would eat its left overs. A another Saber-Tooth Cat scared the Terror Bird away and ate the rest of the corps. The Saber-Tooth Cats are the relatives of the Big Cats of today.

Woolly Rhino

Unlike rhinos today, the Woolly Rhino had a long tusk and long shaggy hair. Their hair was covered with fat. It also had a hump and was able to gallop like a horse because of its long legs. It runs with its head down, horn pointing at its victim then tosses it up in the air. Once they think their predator is no longer a threat, the Woolly Rhino just walks away and eats.

Why Dinos and Ice Age Animals???

The reason why I like dinosaurs and Ice Age animals and why I want to share them with you is because they are magnificent creatures. For me I enjoy the fact that I can always learn something new and I really like talking about dinosaurs and Ice Age animals. Dinosaurs are not just some boring bones in the ground, they teach how life was back then. Same goes for Ice Age animals. They taught me how the history was back then and how they kept themselves warm in the freezing cold. Things were very different back then and I will take you on the journey with me to discovering how dinos and Ice Age animals ruled the earth.

Mammoths are relatives of the elephants of today. They were alive in the Cenozoic Era-Age of Mammals. Woolly Mammoths have long trunks and very long hair. What you probably didn't know even though Woolly Mammoths are huge they have small ears and were herbivores. Mammoths used their trunks to hold things like their babies. Some people might think they look a little odd but I think they were cool. From the hump on their head to their extremely long tusks to their fur that was covered in fat, these magnificent creatures of the Ice Age were a once in a lifetime creation.

Dinosaur room and facts about t-rex

Hello my name is Dewy. People call me Dew, Dewy, Dalton. I have a lot of nicknames. I'm a new blogger. I'm blogging about dinosaur's on my blog. When I grow up I want to be a Paleontologist. I love Dinosaurs and Ice Age animals too.

T-Rex is the baddest Dinosaur ever on earth. The Tyrannosaurus Rex also known as the T-Rex had 60 teeth. The length of his teeth were 9 inches about the size of a banana. The length of his mouth was four feet. They had strong muscles in their jaws that made their bite more powerful then a lion's bite. How cool is that. He lived 65 to 68 million years ago in the Mesozoic Era. Even though they weighed seven tons they could still run faster then a rabbit at speeds of 25 mph according to Paleontologist. T-Rex is tall as five buses. They are 40 feet long/height and their hips height was 20 feet tall. T-Rex name means "Tyrant Lizard King" because T-Rex is the king of the predators                                                                                                                                                                          

I will be back to talk about more Dino's later. Please tell me what your favorite Dinosaurs are and why.
