Little-known dinosaurs that should make an appearance in Jurassic Park 4

Brian Switek does fantastic work writing about dinosaurs. I haven't finished his new book, My Beloved Brontosaurus , just yet, but it's shaping up to be fantastic — all about the slow, lumbering dinosaurs of our childhoods and how our conception of them morphed into something totally different. He's going to be on Science Friday on, well, Friday. And he's written them a post about four distinctive but seldom-discussed dinosaurs that should really get their 15 minutes of fame.


  1. My 5 year old son is hoping they have his favorites – Long Neck, Spiky Tail, and Rock Head…

  2. I’m hoping for Irritator, just so I can watch him talk too loud at the cinema, and not tip the dinosaur waitress.

  3. I knew Therizinosaurus had to be on that list. Dude is bananas.

  4. Can we assume that this book disparages the change from Bronto to Apata as an evil calumny?  Because otherwise it is a misleading title that will just cause more pain to those of us already suffering from change (and the consequent decapitation of Bronty at the Museum of Science and Industry).
