Photos: New Jurassic World Dinosaurs Revealed

The official site for Jurassic World has been updated with design renderings for seven new dinosaur species. Some of the Jurassic World dinosaurs have been seen in previous installments of the Jurassic Park franchise, but others are completely new to Jurassic World.

The fact that Universal Pictures has put the designs on the official website signals they probably don't constitute spoilers, so feel free to dive in. Hit the jump to see the new Jurassic World dinosaur designs.

A fleet-footed carnosaur, Metriacanthosaurus is named for its distinctively spined vertebrae. It once stalked the ancient Jurassic plains, feeding on other dinosaurs. Metriacanthosaurus is a theropod, which is Greek for "beast foot."

Jurassic World dinosaurs Microceratus

Microceratus may be the smallest dinosaurs in Jurassic World. They have short frills and beak-shaped mouths perfect for snapping off leaves and twigs. Microceratus used to be known as Microceratops but lost their name to a species of wasp.
