Prehistoric Animal Drawings from Everything Dinosaur

Whilst trawling through the extensive Everything Dinosaur database, we came across a selection of prehistoric animal drawings.  Team members are not sure where these have originated from or indeed which extinct animals from prehistory they represent but as they were quite colourful, we thought we would post them up.  Everything Dinosaur sends out a lot of drawings and other educational materials to schools as part of the company’s outreach programme that involves teaching about dinosaurs in school and delivering dinosaur workshops.  This is certainly quite an assortment of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals.

But which animals do the drawings represent?  This has led to some debate amongst Everything Dinosaur team members, we can’t agree on them all but reading from left to right as you look at the picture, this is what we think:

  • Hypsilophodont (Hypsilophodon, Leaellynasaura, Drinker, Changchunsaurus, Qantassaurus etc.)
  • Cetiosaurus
  • Camarasaurid – Camarasaurus?
  • Allosaurid – Sinraptor?
  • Rhamphorhynchus
  • Stegosaurus

However, we could be wrong of course, that’s one of the challenges of vertebrate palaeontology, trying to work out what long dead animals looked like.
