Allosaurus fragilis by TheMorlock Allosaurus fragilis by TheMorlock
The Common Allosaur is a famous carnosaur from late Jurassic North America. It is an ambush predator, and preys mainly on ornithopods like Camptosaurus, but will occasionally take sauropods. Carnosaurs do not hunt in organized packs, but will sometimes teem up on large prey in a similar way to Komodo Dragons (Varanus komodoensis).

I guess I'm going to have to start feathering Allosaurs especially with the discovery of a feathered Megalosaur

Cool, I think every theropod had feathers

Cool. A lot of people get whiny when they see big carnosaurs with plumage.

We know based on sciuromimus, not only the coelurosaurs (t.rex and raptor,etc) but the carnosaurs had feathers too

Even though Sciurimimus is a coelurosaur.

So, feather them only, just to be safe.

Yeah. The Jurassic Park fanboys must be taking that hard.

I actually heard somewhere that Allosaurus Skin impressions were found, but no signs of feathers. I'll see if I can find the article.
