3. Raptors

When most people think of raptors, they picture the lithe, lizard-skinned, big-clawed dinosaurs of Jurassic Park. Raptors are smart, not only hunt in packs but able to take down Dino that are bigger than them. most raptors were about the size of small children, almost certainly covered in feathers, and not quite as intelligent as the average hummingbird. Thanks to Jurassic Park, velociraptor remain as the best known raptors.

4. Ankylosaurus

The largest known ankylosaurid, Ankylosaurus measured up to 6.25 m (20.5 feet) in length, 1.7 m (5.6 feet) in height, and weighed 6 tonnes (13,000 lb). It was a quadrupedal animal, with a broad, robust body. It had a wide, low skull, with two horns pointing backwards from the back of the head, and two horns below these that pointed backwards and down. The front part of the jaws were covered in a beak, with rows of small, leaf-shaped teeth further behind it. It was covered in armor plates, or osteoderms, with bony half-rings covering the neck, and had a large club on the end of its tail. Bones in the skull and other parts of the body were fused, increasing their strength, and this feature is the source of the genus name.

5. Hadrosaurid or Duck-Billed Dinosaurs

The most recognizable aspect of hadrosaur anatomy is the flattened and laterally stretched rostral bones, which gives the distinct duck-bill look, and some members of the hadrosaurs also had massive crests on their heads, probably for display.  Most hadrosaurs are believed to have lived in herds, and some genera (like the North American Maiasaura and Hypacrosaurus) were especially good parents to their hatchlings and juveniles.
