About Yangchuanosaurus

Yangchuanosaurus lived in China about 150 million years ago. This dinosaur is very similar to Allosaurus, which lived about the same time in North America.

Yangchuanosaurus had short arms, sharp claws and teeth, and powerful legs, which it used to crush its prey.

It is believed that Yangchuanosaurus probably stalked the young of large plant-eating dinosaurs. However, because few specimens have been found, it is difficult to know for certain.
