Have You Ever Wondered About Those Funny Dinosaur Species?
There is so much diversity in the dinosaur species that have been recreated from fossilized remains to date, but some are certainly much more unusual than others. Today I’m going to take a look at some of the most unusual dinosaur species there are!
Some Interesting and Funny Dinosaur Species
Therizinosaurus is always on the list of the most unusual dinosaur species in my opinion. There are a lot of different recreations of this late Cretaceous giant but all of them feature these incredibly long – and somewhat creepy – sloth-like claws.
The Pachycephalosaurid Stygimoloch doesn’t look quite as unusual with it’s skin on in this recreation, but when you’re just staring at the sharp horned skull this Cretaceous dinosaur looks more like a creature from the horror movies.
Cryolophosaurus was native to Antarctica, but if that doesn’t make this unusual dinosaur strange enough this Jurassic Theropod had a small cranial fan giving it a look of the 1980’s.
While we’re on the topic of crazy looking 1980’s hair, Corythosaurus definitely deserves a mention. Take a look at this crescent shaped cranial crest. This member of the Lambeosaurinae family had some pretty unique headgear!
Gigantoraptor may not be that shocking to some of you but to someone like me who a) shudders at the thought of a velociraptor and b) really doesn’t have much affection for birds, this giant theropod is not only funny looking but also terrifying. This 3,000lb dino-bird featured a powerful beak and sharp toe claws.
