This top-ranking predator is one of the most common and has a great range. Allosaurus can be found in locations as far apart as North America, Australia and Tanzania, which means that plant eaters right across the Jurassic world have plenty to worry about.
Allosaurus is at the very top of the Jurassic food chain. For 10 million years this will be the biggest carnivore on the planet. It is more than capable of tackling most plant eaters, even up to the medium-sized sauropods. However, some palaeontologists believe that Allosaurus hunts in packs; a truly terrifying thought. A hungry Allosaurus herd may even be capable of taking on the biggest sauropods - but the question has to be asked, would they bother when there are easier meals to be had?
