Cretaceous Peroid

General Cretaceous Dinosaur Facts

What was the top predator among the Cretaceous dinosaurs?

This question is difficult to answer. The carnivorous dinosaurs were all vicious as they attacked their prey. Some, like Tyrannosaurus rex, used their size to catch their meals; while others were pack hunters, such as the Velociraptor, which trapped prey by working together as a unit. Or was it better to be fast or even agile, such as the Utahraptor or Megaraptor? In other words, the “top predator” is a matter of opinion.
