[Feature] The Dinosaurs Of Terra Nova

To celebrate Terra Nova The Complete Series coming to DVD this week, we have a very cool feature to share with you which is all about the Dinosaurs of the show!

Terra Nova tells the story of The Shannon Family, who are residents of Earth in a parallel Universe 85 million years in the past. The family aren’t the only residents of the planet though and to celebrate the release of the series on DVD here is a guide to some of the Dinosaurs that inhabit the ‘New World.

  • OvosaurusA cross between a Velociraptor and a Carnotaurtus these evil looking Dinosaurs have an obsession with nickel used in cables which has been described as catnip to them
  • NicoraptorFast and deadly, these fictional Dinosaurs hunt in packs and have been likened to wild dogs due to their mangy appearance. They go by the nickname Nykos

  • PterosaursWinged reptiles that come in various groups, these include; Pteranodon, Rhamphorhynchus and Ornithocerius
  • BrachiosaurusThe first Dinosaur spotted by the Shannon family on Terra Nova weighs 29-43 metric tons and grows to up to 85 feet in length. They are herbivores with extremely small heads and brains for a Dinosaur their size

  • AnkylosaurusFeaturing only briefly in Terra Nova this herbivore hatched from an egg in an incubator after being abandoned. This Dinosaur can be identified by its spiked armour and club like growth at the end of its tail
  • CarnotaurtusA very fast and deadly species and much like the T-Rex, they have a long tail and tiny arms but are differentiated by their large horns

  • AcceraptorGiven the nickname ‘Slasher’ by the Terra Nova colonists due to its razor sharp tail, so sharp it can cut through metal. Acceraptors can be identified by their colourful feathers
  • HowlersSeen but never heard these mysteries creatures have a rather loud scream and are only mentioned by the human residents of Terra Nova on one of the many journeys
  • AllosaurusA large carnivorous dinosaur that grow to an enormous size and can rival the T-Rex in size. They move in large groups and are collectively known as the Allosauroids
