Allosaurus Tooth & Finger Claw fossil replica
Allosaurus was a huge dinosaur that lived during the late Jurassic period. Some scientists believe it to have been 8.5 meters long others say over 12 meters long. It is thought that Allosaurus was at the top of the food chain and ate many other dinosaurs including the Stegosaurus. Allosaurus had long hooked finger claws so it could attack and hold its prey firmly. With a tooth like this it could hold and strip meat from its prey rather than puncture the flesh.
