Allosaurus in the exhibition "The World of Dinosaurs"

Allosaurus

Allosaurus (Allosaurus fragilis) was the largest carnivore of the Upper Jurassic Period. It grabbed its prey with the claws of its short front legs, tearing it up with its blade-like teeth. The Tendaguru expedition yielded only very few bones of the animal. Thus, the skeleton exhibited is an artificial cast.
