Therizinosaurus is my favorite theropod mainly because of how different it is compared to any other theropod that lived around its time. By the look of this scary devil chicken, you would think it would have been the apex carnivore of the time but this giant would have been a peaceful herbivore using its 3m long claws. Although we have only found the arms of it but comparing the size to other Therizinosauridae Therizinosaurus it would have been massive up to 6m tall.
Armadillosuchus was a small crocodile that lived during the cretaceous period in brazil, what is fascinating about this little croc was that is had armadillo-like plating which gives it it’s name. Unlike most crocodiles, it had a lot of mammal-like features in the jaw and teeth but was unrelated. Armadillosuchus in life would have been up to 6.6ft long.
Shunosaurus was a very distinct looking sauropod and had a very unique feature, unlike other sauropods that used their size as a defense or used spikes around there neck to stop them getting bitten Shunosaurus had a spiked tail allowing it to attack predators. This is very rarely seen on sauropods and makes me think of them when people say “think of a sauropod”
