Let’s get the ball rolling with the Brachiosaurus! This sauropod lived during the Late Jurassic and was among the many massive plant-eaters of the time. Some suspect it was in the gigantotherms group—giant animals capable of keeping a warmer body temperature.
When it comes to dangerous Mesozoic predators, this dinosaur is one of the most popular. Not only were Velociraptors scary and aggressive, they were also surprisingly intelligent. Their name means swift raptor—a perfect description of this agile creature. These speedy beasts could run at an estimated speed of 25 mph, but some estimate they could run up to 40 mph!

The Stegosaurus is another popular type of dinosaur for kids, perhaps because of the spiky plates across its spine. While there’s no way to know for sure why this herbivore had spikes, it is quite possibly a form of natural defense. Another interesting physical feature is its short neck, and scientists suspect that this means it ate meals close to the ground as opposed to from the trees.
The Triceratops was similar to a prehistoric rhino though it had three horns and a frill around its head. These features were important to the Triceratops’ survival because the species needed natural protection from massive predators like the T-Rex. This breed of dinosaur lived in herds in North America during the Late Cretaceous period.
Last but certainly not least is the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex! This apex predator is one of children’s favorite dinosaurs because of its incredible strength. The T-Rex ruled over Western North America near the end of the Cretaceous Period, and as a carnivore, thrived on meat. Despite its massive size, it could sprint up to 20 mph, and its typical lifespan was around 30 years.
