Top 10 Prehistoric Creatures That Make Jurassic Park Look Like A Petting Zoo


Top 10 Dinosaurs That Make Jurassic Park Look
Like A Petting Zoo 10. Titanis Many people own birds as pets. These small
creatures are usually seen as benign and an animal that in no way poses any type of threat
to homo sapien (that’s us). How can a bird endanger humankind? Welcome to Titanis. The
name alone conjures up something majestic and magnanimous. And it should, as Titanis
was a flightless land bird that roamed the plains of North America in the Pliocene and
Pleistocene ages, some 5 to 2 million years ago. And check this out-Titanis grew to heights
of eight to 10 feet tall, towering over the average man. Also, it weighed up to 300 pounds
with powerful legs which enabled the bird to run up to speeds of 40 miles per hour.
What was its diet? Meat. With a downward curved beak, heavy skull and
powerful neck, a downward strike could kill easily or in the least, rip hunks of flesh
out of you. Try to survive that, puny human. Soon you will be seeing Titanis come to a
movie screen near you, as the popular fiction novel “The Flock,” by author James Robert
Smith is currently in development as a feature film, and the premise is all about what happens
if Titanis never became extinct and came face to face with man. Lots of human death, that’s
what happens. 9. Titanoboa Are you afraid of snakes? Well if the answer
is “yes” you will not like this entry. Take a gander upon the Titanoboa. We have
here another creature with the word “titan” in its name, which shows that it means business.
The titanoboa’s natural habitat was South America. It lived approximately 60 million
years ago in the Paleocene era. Imagine this: the titanoboa grew up to a length of 43 feet
long. That’s longer than a bus and weighed an astounding 2,500 pounds. Now consider this.
The current record for the largest snake in captivity is 24 feet and 300 pounds in weight.
Enough said. Oh yeah, the titanoboa regularly ate crocodiles for dinner. And since a croc
is bigger than the average human, the titanboa will have no problems swallowing us whole. 8. Entelodon First birds and now pigs. How can a little
piggy be dangerous to the health of the human race? Enter Entelodon. This is not your normal
pig. The name of this creature is Greek for “perfect teeth.” That should tell you
something. And, its pseudonym is “The Killer Pig.” Roaming the wide terrain of Eurasia
around 27 to 30 plus million years ago, smack dab in the late Eocene and middle Oligocene
period, 30 million years after the dinosaur. This killer pig grew up to 10 feet in length,
weighed about 1,000 pounds and stood the height of an average man. It wasn’t known as “the
killer pig” and “perfect teeth” for nothing – it was a voracious meat eater.
And what are humans made of? That’s right. Meat. This beast could consume almost about anything,
from leaves to fruit to carcasses. Bones would easily be crushed by its jaws, aided by its
extremely tough and strong neck muscles. Entelodon was such a voracious eater that it would become
cannibalistic when food was short. 7. Spinosaurus Now we are moving into the realm of the big
boys. Forget the Tyrannosaurus Rex. Forget about Giganotosaurus. Spinosaurus is the largest
meat eating dinosaur ever. Here are its stats. It weighed up to 23 tons, which outweighs
both the Tyrannosaurus and the Giganotosaurus. It grew up to 59 feet in length. A dinosaur
of the Cretaceous period, it lived around 112 to 97 million years ago, terrorizing its
peers in North Africa. Spinosaurus’s distinctive feature was the row of long spines that went
down its back, like a sail, hence its name. The purpose of the sail may have been for
mating purposes or to ward off enemies, even though Spinosaurus did not have many predators
to worry about. Spinosaurus was capable of gaining speeds
of up to 15 mph, with row upon row of needle type teeth in its crocodile-like jaws. Even
though these teeth were not serrated, which means that most of its diet probably consisted
of fish and possible dead carcasses, it would still have no problems tearing into our small,
fragile bodies like the fish it feasted on. 6. Megalania You know the Komodo dragon, the feared largest
living member of the monitor lizard family? The lizard that can kill with one bite? The
lizard that is extremely hazardous to humans? Well forget it. Enter the real dragon – Megalania.
Living some 2 plus million years ago, in the Pleistocene period, this beast of a land dweller
had a skull 29 inches long, a length of 23 feet and reaching weights of between 1,320
to 1,370 pounds. Compare this to the Komodo, in which the Komodo dragon reaches an average
length of 10 feet and weight of up to 150 pounds. The Megalania completely dwarfs the
deadly Komodo. It is now known that Megalania is the largest terrestrial land lizard to
have ever lived. It is theorized that due to its immense size and body type, the diet
of the Megalania consisted of the Diprotodon, which by the way, was only the largest marsupial
to ever have lived, reaching lengths of 10 feet long, a height of 6.6 feet tall and weighing
an incredible 6,200 pounds. These are important statistics to recount, because if the enormous
Diprotodon was the main staple of food for Megalania, a human would be just a mere snack,
an appetizer at best for Megalania. Megalania was like a tank, with broad, strong and heavy
limbs and body in addition to have rows of blade like teeth and to make matters worse,
Megalania, like the Komodo dragon, was venomous. 5. Hatzegopteryx Forget the previous mentioned terror bird.
As I stated, now we are dealing with the big boys. Here we have Hatzegopteryx. This is
the largest flying animal to have ever existed. Flying over Europe 65 million years ago, this
pterosaur monster weighed up to 250 pounds with a wingspan of up to 40 feet. A 40 foot
wingspan! Amazing. But let us continue. When touching ground, this creature was as tall
as the present day giraffe, with a 10 foot long skull. Its beak alone was three feet
in length. With stats such as these, it easily preyed on land dinosaurs that lived on Hatzeg
Island. The creature’s skull was tough and robust, due to the plate like structure of
its skull and it lower jaw contained a groove at the point of articulation, which allowed
it to have a massive gape. A flying eating machine of this size is a human’s worst
nightmare. 4. Mapusaurus Mapusaurus, also known as the “Earth Lizard,”
was a massive carnivore that lived in what is present day Argentina, during the late
Cretaceous era. It had similar dimensions to Giganotosaurus, which incidentally it’s
related to. Weighing six tons and growing in lengths of over 40 feet long, this monster
was a fearsome creature in its time. So imagine the fear it would conjure up if it existed
in the wild today. We would be very easy pickings. Slightly larger than the Tyrannosaurus Rex,
it was unearthed during an excavation by the Argentinean-Canadian Dinosaur Project. Paleontologists
Rodolfo Coria and Phil Currie gave the creature its designation. To understand how fearsome
this creature is, comprehend this – its skull was the size of the average sized man. 3. Giganotosaurus Giganotosaurus reached an astounding length
of 47 feet. Its weight was eight tons. Its teeth were eight inches long. And it lived
and killed 95 million years ago, in the region of what is now known as the country of Argentina.
Also, this creature had two hands with three fingers, containing very sharp claws. And
what made this monster truly scary is that its arms were bigger than that of the Tyrannosaurus,
meaning it had more weaponry to use for its job of killing. After careful analysis and
research, it was discovered that despite its fearsome size, the Tyrannosaurus did have
an edge in one distinct area – biting power. The bite of the Giganotosaurus was nearly
three times as weak as that of the T. Rex, but it is still powerful enough to devour
a human, whole. 2. Allosaurus Here’s the line for the Allosaurus – its
natural habitat was North America, it lived during the Jurassic period, which was 150
million years ago, it was 40 feet long and weighed about three tons. Its diet of course
was purely based on meat. One can look at the Allosaurus as an almost Tyrannosaurus
Rex light, but no less dangerous. This meat eater was plentiful in North America, attested
to by the many intact fossils found in Utah. It was theorized that these specimens died
by jumping into mud pits to prey on entangled herbivores, becoming entangled themselves.
Its prey probably included such giant beasts like stegosaurids and sauropods. Various theories
abound regarding its hunting behavior, with some stating that they hunted in packs while
other theories state that they were loners and quite hostile to each other, even possibly
eating its dead, but it is known fact that the Allosaurus would use ambush techniques
against its prey, utilizing its jaw like a hatchet. 1. Acrocanthosaurus Living during the early Cretaceous period,
125 million years ago, this bipedal rampaging carnivore weighed six tons and grew up to
40 feet in length. With the unique feature of a narrow ridge going down its back (hence
its name being Greek for “high spined lizard”), it prowled the woods of North America, searching
and hunting for prey. Like the T. Rex, it featured short arms, incredible biting power
and strong legs. Acrocanthosaurs’s ridge may have been used for mating purposes, like
the Spinosaurus, or perhaps as a way of regulating its body temperature. Despite not living in
the same time period as the T. Rex, do not misunderstand, it will kill you and eat you
just as quickly.

    Giant pigs and giant pigeons. That makes the Jurrasic Park franchise feel like a petting zoo. One bite from t-rex could squirt the insides out of those two. Spino could use its arms to throw them 20 meters away. Also it ate could grab 8 meter long sharks out of the water with its mouth.

    "try to survive that puny human"
    i like how these kind of videos try to scare us, while we, humans, are the most dangerous species in the whole world. no species ever could survive if we decide to kill that species. it is not size, or teeth or venom, but brains, the most dangerous weapon of all.

  18. Kaleb Ortiz says:

    a trex would still beat up a spinosauras

  19. Nerd Girl says:

    I grew up in the 70’s and my dinos dragged their tails and stood upright like Godzilla. Most had no feathers, and TRex was the baddest dude on the block. Since then, everything I’ve learned about dinos has been turned on its head. There is even debate on whether TRex was a predator or a scavenger.

  20. Sarodore The Dragon says:

    Kamoto Dragons are not venomous!They are a bacteria carrier, meaning if you get bit but escape, your cause of death will most likely be catastrophic bacterial infection. There are only 2 reptiles that are venomous: Heliamonster and Gillamonster.

  23. Angus Kotyk says:

    There is a lot of things wrong with this video, I’ll make a listMost of the animals on this list aren’t dinosaurs, titanis lived in South America, Spinoza Uris is in one of the juassic park movies, t-Rex could easily kill a spino (not the JP Spino), spinosaurus was a quadroped, spinosaurus’ “sail” was more like a bison’s hump than anything, quetzalcoatlus was the largest flying animal and not the hetza, there is a lot more dangerous dinosaurs than mapusaurus, you said gigantosaurus not giganotosaurus, you say the giga’s Arms are bigger than the t-Rex’s like the t- rex arms were big, who says “ entangled” when something’s stuck in mud, who the hell on this earth would put acrocanthosaurus as number one, none of these animals could kill a t-Rex, charcaradontosaurus should have made it onto the list and most of these animals aren’t that bad compared to the JP animals.

  24. Menzi Boi says:

    so none of these creatures are from Africa…?

  25. sol says:

    so pigs, snakes and lizzards are dinosaurs now

  26. Dominic Ehrnreiter says:

    I like how he said that Komodo dragons are venomous even tho that isn't entirely true because if you are venomous that means you bit something and directly inject the venom in the victim but, the komodo dragon has glands in their throat that make it harder to clot the theoretical blood that would be pouring out of said victim, so that just means if you get bit you will die a slow painful death

  27. Check That Out says:

    He looks like Jonny sins never mind 😂😂

  35. Leo Cruz says:

    The biggest flying animal was Quetzacoalt not Hatzegopteryx

  36. Siamzero1994 says:

    And yet Megalania went extinct the moment the Pre-Historic Aborigines entered Australia. So who was the true prey?

  37. Zach C says:

    I love this list, but I'm /so/ tired of seeing shrink-wrapped Entelodon images. The skin does not conform the the skull like that…. especially not in pigs. Even extinct ones.

  38. martijn van weele says:

    Spinosaurus was in Jurassic Park III. Also, Acrocanthosaurus, Allosaurus, Giganotosaurus and Mapusaurus are basically T-Rexes for the purpose of "making Jurassic Park look like a petting zoo",. and T-Rex was featured prominently in all of the Jurassic Park movies, so I don't think they quite accomplish that goal…

  39. Wendy and Mike Terell says:

    I totally didn’t pee my self on the first one

  40. superzilla784 says:

    I love dinoursoes my favourite dinoursor is the raptire they are deadly but cute

  44. Beth black says:

    Spino was in Jurassic park (the third one) and in real live, not the movie, it just ate fish.

  45. Pyro Snickenson says:

    The spinosaurus was in Jurassic Park 3 and what is the title of the video?

  46. Bts BlackPink says:

    But spinosaurus walk and ran on 4 legs witch means it was longer then the Trex but not taller.

  47. Stephen Giles says:

    Ridiculous tagline T Rex would make mince meat of all of these

    But spinosaurus was in a Jurassic Park film.

  52. K ris says:

    I’d like to know how details, like venom or hunting tactics, can be figured when no extant examples exist and what we have are fossilized

    2016 spino didnt have those long legs it was more aquatic than any other dinosaur. it was longer but not as tal as t-rex. if you want a bigger land carnivore than t-rex there is giganotosaurus for example.

    Hatzegopteryx sounds a lot like Quetzalcoatlus

  61. Alivia says:

    boriiing

  62. themonsterc99 says:

    A lot of these numbers are wrong

  63. 2l84t says:

    Your title and statement are in conflict. "So may I present the ten animals that would wreak havoc upon humanity if they were still alive."., is definitely different than the title hence the ridicule .

  64. perceptiblepain says:

    I like how they can tell how fast a creature can run by its bones.

    dude, metric system please

  66. Chris Norman says:

    Anyone who says parrots aren’t a threat to man has never had to take care of my sister’s nasty parrot.

    "It would easily kill humans" – Yea so could a tiger, how did that work out lol – there is a reason humans have caused mass extinction of mega Forna and it isn't because we make easy meals haha

  68. Kym Nicole Rush says:

    I live in Australia. Our goannas can still get up to 6ft. (Related to the Komodo Dragon)
    As a kid, I was an Allosaurus fan.

  69. Ken Iimori says:

    How fitting. you use prehistoric units like pound and feet in a video about prehistoric creatures.
    The modern metric system at least added in the background would be a nice bonus though.

  70. Thomas Gideon says:

    All the cool things died out before we had a chance to kill them. Darn.

  71. KERNOW88 says:

    Megalania died out and lived along side the indigenous people of Australia for about 20,000 years before it went extinct, most likely due to human intervention much like most other megafauna of that time in Australia that died out about 40,000 years ago.

    humans are estimated to have arrived on Australia about 50,000 to 70,000 years ago

  72. Deimos Cain says:

    Number 7. Wasn't the big fin to help it warm up in the morning by collecting heat from the Sun?? I think I was taught something similar to that when I was a kid. Isn't that what desert lizards use it for now?

  73. Mason Nuttle says:

    Spino was in Jurassic park?

  74. big dead cat says:

    Aboriginal Australians actually met megalania , these lizards didn't die out till fairly recently….well maybe 40, 50 000 years ago 😎

  75. TD Immanuel says:

    I love how scientists can tell us what happened millions of years ago but can’t tell us what will happen tomorrow

  76. Phil B says:

    Titanis looking like it just walked into the club shooting fingerguns at everyone.

  77. Phil Read says:

    kilograms please

  78. Shy Guy Mafia says:

    For the love of christ, it's not hard to do the friggin conversion from imperial to metric. I myself am american, and I managed to learn how to do it, so I know you guys can. It's really easy, too. One inch is approximately 2.54cm, or 25.4mm. There are 12 inches to a foot (30.48cm/304.8mm). When it comes to weight, there are approximately 2.2 pounds (it's actually 2.20462) to 1 kilogram.

    Even if you cannot do the math in your head, you have access to a calculator and the goddamned internet. Get off of your lazy asses, and look it up yourselves if you don't know the answer.

    And no, I am not talking to Mr. Whistler, or whoever is responsible for the video. I am talking to you guys. The viewers.

  81. Bob Bart says:

    Entelodon. -Makin' bacon supersized!

  82. nosuchthing8 says:

    Number 10 seems scary, but not compared to a t Rex. Maybe a match for a raptor

  83. D She says:

    Titanis was magnanimous? Are you sure? Generous and forgiving?

  84. Constant Chaos says:

    10) *terrorbirds
    9) titan-boa not titanaboa
    8) *hell pig
    5) the quetzalcuotolis was bigger
    Most of these arent dinosaurs

  85. Garrett Thacher says:

    I want to want Doraleous and Associates now —-
    TightAnus

  86. Michael Baker says:

    At 23 seconds.
    Got to ask, what bollocks are you talking about? Yeah, OK maybe a gull isn't going to win a fight with a human and their first plan would be to fly away. But I wouldn't call them benign.
    Then we have things like swans and geese. Definitely not benign, those bastards are aggressive and powerful, pretty big too. And these are just things I'd come across in the UK.
    Then there's my ace card. Have you ever seen an ostridge? You think birds are benign and harmless, go get in a pen with an ostridge.

  87. Michael Baker says:

    Time 2 minutes
    Again, what are you on? Domestic pigs are big, powerful animals that could easily make a mess of a human. But look at the undomesticed animal, the wild boor, and you'll wonder why, and how, we even domesticed that beast in the first place.

    P.S. Why the hell are you using that garbage measurement system, imperial. Use metric.

  88. Michael Baker says:

    Honestly, I didn't like the video. It was very sensationalist.
    You presented as if your entries were just movie monsters, to be feared. They're not. They were real live animals. As such, their behaviour would be unlikely to be anywhere near as pointlessly aggressive and murderous as you make out. Predators don't kill for shits and giggles, they kill so they can eat. Think about how much time lions spend just lying around. Snakes can go months on just one meal.
    In short, there's nothing to suggest that any of these animals would just kill a human on sight, regardless. And there's plenty to suggest they wouldn't.

    P.S. I think your information on spinosaurous is out of date.
    P.P.S. Do you even know what a dinosaur is? What the hell are titanoboa, entelodon, megalania and hatzegopteryx doing on a list of dinosaurs? Dinosaurs are archosaurs and only one of those four is an archosaur, the hatzegopteryx, which is a pterosaur, not a dinosaur. And the entelodon is a mammal for crying out loud!
    And yes, I know, titanis is a bird. But as birds are dinosaurs I'll let that one go, even though I suspect that by "dinosaur" you were using the colloquial meaning, ie the non-avion dinosaurs.
    So, on your list of 10 dinosaurs you only have 6 dinosaurs. And if you ment non-avion dinosaurs, you only have 5.

  89. el mono says:

    Titanoboa should have been the antagonist of the Jurassic World movies. Screw the Indominius Rex and Indomoraptor!

  90. Dark Matter says:

    None of those made Jurassic Park look like a petting zoo

  91. Green Man says:

    Allosaurus – my favorite dinosaur.

  92. El loco holandes errante says:

    Where they were found cannot be a reference of his region of living and the continent's are different in comparison to now .

  93. Ray Lanthier says:

    I don't believe biologists know that these mobsters existed

  94. Static Syn says:

    Uhmm I am 24 seconds in, and I do not see birds as benign, and I think they are a serious threat(well to me anyway.). . .I have a phobia of birds. . .Mostly Chicken(Unless deep fried/covered in buffalo sauce.) and geese. I was attacked by both species I forget my exact age, it was somewhere around 5 or 6. The Roosters owned by a family member, were so f*cking vicious, they pecked and clawed me to the point I needed stitches. And, I was attacked by a gang of geese at a park that was across the street from my house, they jumped me one day out of the f*cking blue, I just remember a flurry of rage fulled feathers, and beaks, and those assholes bite. I came home covered in bruises, and bleeding. So yea Birds and Spiders are where I draw the line when it comes to nature.

  95. Richie F says:

    For number 7. Did he just use the jp3 model spinosaurus for is example on why it should have been in jp?

  96. Lucky Goose says:

    Now, we just worry about mosquitoes and cell signal strength so we’re not bored to death.
