Also known as the southern titan, this herbivorous beast is the largest dinosaur ever found in Australia.
Believed to be an early ancestor of Triceratops, this beast also ate plants and wielded some gnarly horns.
It’s one of the oldest known ceratopsid dinosaurs ever found. Menefeeceratops roamed modern-day New Mexico about 82 million years ago.
Found on the U.K.’s Isle of Wight, this carnivore hunted prey on both land and water.

“It might sound odd to have two similar and closely related carnivores in an ecosystem, but this is actually very common for both dinosaurs and numerous living ecosystems.”
Studded with fully-body armor, Spicomellus is the oldest ankylosaur ever found — and the first discovered on the African continent.
The researchers found that long spines were fused to the creature’s ribs and protruded above the skin.
Stegouros was a type of ankylosaur that had a flat, leaf-shaped tail like no other dinosaur. Its almost complete skeleton was discovered in subantarctic Chile.
A single jawbone found in Uzbekistan led researchers to name a new carnivore — a predecessor to Tyrannosaurus Rex.
It lived at the same time as small tyrannosaurs, and the discovery of Ulughbegsaurus helps researchers narrow down the time frame when tyrannosaurs became the reigning carnivores of the dinosaur world.
Llukalkan roamed Patagonia in the Late Cretaceous while T. Rex stalked through the Northern Hemisphere.
