Chilantaisaurus needs a better publicist! It isn’t particularly well known within paleontological circles so it is understandable if you haven’t heard of it, despite it being named 56 years ago and possessing some amazing features. With femora slightly over 4’ long, powerful arms nearly double the length of T. rex, and 10” curved hand claws this animal packs size and strength! The skull is unknown but a serrated tooth attributed to this animal was roughly 2” long. The legs, arms, powerful shoulders, and huge claws mean Chilantaisaurus is gunning to be the Chompion!
