We gather the largest among ancient beasts in this list of the 11 biggest dinosaurs: one just discovered recently. If people could roughly map out the entire history of earth on a roll of tissue paper, humans would’ve been on the last piece – smallest piece. This goes to show how little time we’ve actually existed on this planet. Though records before written human history have been generally a blur, whether we’ve existed during the time of dinosaurs remains a hot topic for debate. There’s one thing though that we can be sure of – dinosaurs were the biggest creatures that have ever walked on this planet.
There are many possible answers to question – why dinosaurs no longer exist today. Many would say that the earth was very different back then in terms of environment and structure. The main reason that dinosaurs did not survive until today is the fact that they failed to adapt after adaptation had become necessary. One of the main theories for their extinction was that a major cataclysmic event changed the environment of the earth rapidly. This caused dinosaurs to slowly disappear. Interestingly, there have been discoveries of actual human tools and biological prints that seem to date back to around the time the dinosaurs existed. These are mysteries of the past that still remain with us today.
But for this list we’ll tackle the biggest dinosaurs that have ever existed. Thankfully, most of these large dinosaurs we’re actually herbivores. If you’re looking for a list that’s a little more relevant to the times, check out The 11 Most Dangerous Animals in the World.
Let’s head to the first on this list:
The Spinosaurus has been fully brought to our attention in the last decade or so. The first Spinosaurus fossil was discovered in Egypt during the 1910s. The World War however, destroyed a lot of specimens and research on the creature. The Spinosaurus is considered to be a specialized carnivorous dinosaur. It even has the capability to swim and hunt prey in the water.
