Adasaurus
Adasaurus mongoliensis
  user posted image
  
Pronounced: A-dah-Sore-us
Diet: Carnivore (Meat-Eater)
Name Means: "Ada Lizard"
Length: 6 feet (2 m)
Height: 2 feet (.7 m)
Weight: 33 pounds (15 kilos)
Time: Late Cretaceous - 75 MYA  
Location: Asia  

  Was Adasaurus a dinosaur or was it a bird?

Scientists believe that it had feathers, and that it was small and lightweight. It also had a killer claw like Velociraptor, but the claw was smaller.

What we do know from the few fossils that have been discovered so far, is that Adasaurus was a small, meat-eating dinosaur that was very lightweight and had many bird-like features. It has been placed in the same family as Velociraptor for now, but future discoveries may change that.

This small dinosaur adds fuel to the ever-growing debate surrounding dinosaurs and birds. Adasaurus has been described as being extremely similar to Archeopteryx. It has enough of the dromaeosaur characteristics to be placed in that family too, but the overall view of those types of raptors is evolving into their being referred to as bird-like dinosaurs, complete with feathers. Eventually, some members of that family may be reclassified as birds instead of dinosaurs.

Hi, my name is Suki and I've never really participated in any forums or chat room type computer stuff.  I guess I'm just old and uncool!  But I have been a longtime fan of all things dinosaur and now my 4 year old nephew is really interested in the subject.  I realized I wasn't as up to date on dinosaurs as I should be when I went into a store looking for a few toy dinos and half of them had names I wasn't familiar with!  And they were no longer all just GREEN!  
Anyway, I found this website while I was looking for pictures of dinos and I was really impressed with all the information I found.  It got me excited about palaeontology again for myself, not just to keep up with my nephew!  
So, thanks for sharing all your knowledge and I really enjoy people asking questions and the discussions.  I feel like I could ask a "dumb" question and be given a serious answer without being insulted or made to feel like I don't belong.  I probably won't chime in much.  I just wanted to say "thanks" and that I will be around soaking up all the info.  grin2.gif

Megaraptor
Megaraptor namunhuaiquii
  
Pronounced:Meg - uh - Rap - tor
Diet:Carnivore (Meat-Eater)
Name Means:"Big Robber"
Length:26 feet (8 m)
Height:10 feet (3 m)
Weight:1 tons (900 kilos)
Time:Middle Cretaceous - 90 MYA
  
  
Fact Card: Download a flash card to cut out and quiz your friends  


Location:South America, possibly Asia  



  
  If this monster was everything scientists think it was, it could have been the most vicious predator ever. Megaraptor was like a giant Velociraptor, larger even than Utahraptor, that had a killing claw over 14 inches (36 cm) long! Add to that its sharp teeth, long powerful arms and hands with huge claws and you have one fierce animal. The trouble is, very little of this dinosaur has been found, and it is a very recent discovery, so it may be some time before we know for certain what it really looked like.

Discovered in 1997 in Argentina, Megaraptor was found associated with the fossil remains of Unenlagia, a bird-like dinosaur. There is some speculation that Megaraptor was the adult version of Unenlagia, which is known from an apparently juvenile specimen. Remains of a specimen similar to those of the Megaraptor have also recently been found in China and await study.

Ha if it lived in both South Am. and asia it "mite" have lived in north Am. It "mite" have cross that in to alska. style_emoticons/default/geek.gif

Actually,Megaraptor in now believed to be a spinosaur. That Claw on it's toe may have been on it's hand instead.

The Dinosaur of the Day is:

Giganotosaurus
Giganotosaurus carolinii
  
Posted Image  

Pronounced: Jig-an-o-toe-Saw-rus
Diet: Carnivore (Meat-Eater)
Name Means: "Giant Southern Lizard"
Length: 43 feet (14 m)
Height: 17 feet (5.5 m)
Weight: 7 tons (6,800 kilos)
Time: Late Cretaceous - 100 MYA
Location: South America  
  
  Giganotosaurus was one big meat-eater! It may have been the biggest one of all, even bigger than T. rex.

Giganotosaurus is slightly heavier than T.Rex and it is not 17 feet tall.
