ALLOSAURUS FRAGILIS A REVISED OSTEOLOGY PDF

The snout of Allosaurus was narrower than the back part of the skull, which was stoutly built for predation. The back part of the skull was also dropped down relative to the snout, allowing Allosaurus to have more teeth in contact with its prey when it snapped its jaws shut. Allosaurus had short crest-like horns in front of its eyes, which were possibly used to attract mates or recognize other members of its species. Although probably not a fast runner, we know from proportions of its hind limbs and reconstructions of the muscles that moved these limbs that Allosaurus was likely faster than other contemporaneous meat eaters and certainly faster than anything it preyed upon.

Allosaurus had short crest-like horns in front of its eyes, which were possibly used to attract mates or recognize other members of its species. Although probably not a fast runner, we know from proportions of its hind limbs and reconstructions of the muscles that moved these limbs that Allosaurus was likely faster than other contemporaneous meat eaters and certainly faster than anything it preyed upon. Unlike predators such as Ceratosaurus and Torvosaurus who lived alongside it, Allosaurus had powerful arms with large hands and big claws.

These adaptations would have allowed it to use its arms in attacking prey. Not to mention, Allosaurus fragilis is the state fossil of Utah! Quarries in Utah, such as at Dinosaur National Monument near Vernal and the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry near Price, have produced numerous exquisite specimens of Allosaurus and greatly expanded our knowledge of this Late Jurassic predator.

The Natural History Museum of Utah has the best collection of Allosaurus anywhere in the world, including a range of individuals from babies only three feet one meter long to large adults over 35 feet 10 meters long, allowing paleontologists to study how Allosaurus changed as it grew up.

RE: Allosaurus: A Revised Osteology PDF

Description: Forty-nine years have elapsed since the initial collection of dinosaur remains by professional paleontologists from the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry, during which time little descriptive work has been published on this extraordinary site. A massive accumulation of dinosaur bones pertaining to at least eleven genera, and possibly more, lie within the Brushy Basin Member of the Late Jurassic Morrison Formation. Allosaurus fragilis, the most common taxon, is represented by bones from many individuals of different size. Bones from the Cleveland-Lloyd Dinosaur Quarry are extremely well preserved but from almost completely disarticulated skeletons. Sixty or more individuals are indicated by more than ten thousand elements.
