This one is like a walking tank: about 7 feet (2 m) tall, 25-35 feet (7-10 m) long and heavily armored with thick oval bone plates and two rows of spikes along its body. It could also protect itself from predators with its club-shaped tail, so keep that in mind while trying to put it down. Otherwise Ankylosaurus makes an easy target even for a novice hunter. Just make sure to aim for its underbelly which is not protected with plates.
One of the most recognizable dinosaurs due to distinctive bony plates embedded in its back and spikes at the end of its flexible tail. Stegosaurus is a herbivore and eats plants such as ferns, mosses, horsetails, cycads and bushy conifers. These dinosaurs are 26-30 feet (8-9 m) long and 12-13 feet (4 m) tall and are easy to spot and identify, thus making them an effortless target even for an inexperienced hunter.
Has a large (up to 6 feet or 1.8 meters long) bony crest on its head which helps to easily spot this dinosaur. Parasaurolophus is even bigger than Stegosaurus (roughly the same height, but up to 40 feet or 12 meters long) and is a herbivore too. Instead of Ankylosaurus and Stegosaurus, Parasaurolophus walks on two legs and has no armor, which is compensated by its keen senses. So while Parasaurolophus can be easily shot down, it might be tricky to approach it undetected.
This huge four legged animal has three large horns on its head and will not hesitate in charging into its enemy and impaling it like a modern-day rhinoceros does. Triceratops is 26-29 feet (8-9 m) long and about 10 feet (3 m) high, so even one strike of its horns could be fatal. Even though it is a herbivore and won’t attack unless provoked, Triceratops becomes enraged if wounded, so make sure to take a good aim before shooting or have a backup plan.
Is a relatively small carnivore reaching length of 20 feet (6 m) and height of 8 feet (2.3 m) with a bright colored hide. This makes it a good practice target before you get to hunt a bigger game like T. Rex. But beware, as Ceratosaurus is a carnivore and it is still much bigger than any human, it will attack you if you come too close. Naturally, this dinosaur is also a fast runner, so make sure you attack this beast from afar. Meeting it in any other circumstances would most definitely lead to a dire end.
Although it’s not the largest carnivore dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus Rex is one of the biggest meat-eating animals known to science. Also known as T. Rex thanks to popular culture, this bipedal dinosaur is up to 40 feet (12.5 m) long and up to 20 feet (6 m) tall and has an enormous skull about 5 feet (1.5 m) long with jaws up to 4 feet (1.2 m) long which allows it to eat about 500 pounds (230 kg) of flesh and bone in just one bite! Shooting T. Rex anywhere but the targeted eye area will only make it more aggressive, so beware of this dangerous beast – it can run with a speed up to 15 mph (25 km/h)!
An ostrich-like fast-running dinosaur with a long neck and a small head. It is relatively small in comparison with other dinosaurs – about 20 feet (6 m) long and 7 feet (2 m) tall. Gallimimus is an omnivore and eats small crustaceans, insects, and plant material by using comb-like plates in its mouth. This dinosaur is not aggressive and will run away if attacked.
Another tiny dinosaur, Pelecanimimus is roughly the size of a human and is only around 7 feet (2 m) long and 3.5 feet (a bit over 1 m) tall. It has over 200 teeth – even more than Tyrannosaurus Rex! – but is an omnivore like a Gallimimus and will most likely run away if you come too close.
A close relative of dinosaurs, this flying fish-eating reptile with a crest on its head has a wingspan of up to 33 feet (10 m) and is about a man’s height tall – 6 feet (1.8 m). Though it is a carnivore, this animal is not aggressive and you can try to shoot it down without consequences. Just make sure you have enough ammo: though Pteranodon is bigger than any modern-day bird, it could be quite tricky to hit it, especially with a crossbow.
