    •  Deltadromeus - A large ceratosaurian theropod dinosaur, Deltadromeus had a long, unusually slender hind limbs for its size, suggesting it was a swift runner.
    • Suchomimus - A massive and powerful creature with a crocodile-like mouth that ate mostly fish in the once lush, swampy habitat of the Sahara.
    • Cryolophosaurus - Found close to the South Pole and is the only named dinosaur known from Antarctica.
    • Parasaurolophus - Like other hadrosaurids, Parasaurolophus had a hollow head crest that is believed to have been used as resonating chamber to produce a distinctive call to other members of the herd.
