Photos: New Jurassic World Dinosaurs Revealed

New Jurassic World Dinosaurs

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.

Agression Level: Medium

Name Meaning: “Two-form tooth”
Habitat: England & Mexico
8 ft
3 lbs
Stance: Quadruped/Winged
Diet: Fish and insects
Age: Mid-Jurassic

Dimorphodon is one of our park’s pterosaurs, or flying reptiles. It evolved to soar through the Jurassic skies, with large eyes, quick jaws and sharp talons perfect for catching fish—or other prey. The Dimorphodon is a “snap-feeder,” with quick jaws suited to snatching fish and insects.

Age: Cretaceous

Edmontosaurus is a flat-headed duck-billed dinosaur. Once threatened by the T. rex, it loves hanging out in herds and munching on conifers and other vegetation. Edmontosaurus is one of the few dinosaurs that can chew, grinding veggies to pulp before swallowing.
Jurassic World dinosaurs Suchomimus


Park Area: Cretaceous Cruise
Aggression Level: Medium

Name Meaning: “Crocodile mimic”
Habitat: Africa
35 ft
3 tons
Stance: Biped

The Suchomimus is known for the distinctive sail on its lower back and the huge, foot-long claws on each thumb that it uses to catch fish. Suchomimus gets its name from its distinctive crocodile-like snout.

Jurassic World dinosaurs Metriacanthosaurus


Park Area: Cretaceous Cruise
Aggression Level: High

Name Meaning: “Moderately-Spined Lizard”
Habitat: England, Europe
Stance: Biped
Diet: Carnivore
Age: Mid-Jurassic

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


Park Area: Cretaceous Cruise
Agression Level: Low

Name Meaning: “Small-horned”
Habitat: North America, Asia
Stance: Biped
Diet: Herbivore
Age: Cretaceous

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.

Jurassic World dinosaurs Pteranodon


Park Area: Aviary
Aggression Level: High

Name Meaning: “Toothless wing”
Habitat: North America, Europe
18 ft
70 lbs
Stance: Quadruped/Winged

The Pteranodon is our Jurassic World’s biggest pterosaur, or flying reptile. With a wider wingspan than any known bird, it’s primarily a fish eater, though Pteranodon is very aggressive. Pteranodon have three clawed fingers on each hand, and four clawed toes on each foot.


We’ve already seen a bunch of dinosaurs from Jurassic World, including the human engineered Indominus Rex in computer rendering and toy form.
