Jurassic World Dominion has an epic packed dinosaur list

The dinosaur list for Jurassic World Dominion is similar to Fallen Kingdom, but it’s still pretty epic. You’ll find a host of favorites from the Michael Crighton sci-fi adventure packed into the trailer. However, it looks like it’s not going to just be a carbon copy and the synopsis for the film promises never before seen dinosaurs, so here’s everything that you need to know.

Jurassic World Dominions trailer dinosaur list

Firstly, you can take a lot of the dinosaur list from the recent Jurassic World Dominion trailer. Here’s a rundown of their appearances. It includes timestamps for each of them and a little details about the dinosaurs themselves:


0:04 – You can see these herbivores running across snow-covered scrub-land and hills right at the beginning of the trailer. It turns out that they are running with Owen Grady and team and there’s a scene where Own is trying to calm one that he’d managed to lasso. They originate from the late Cretaceous Period, so you’re looking at between 76 and 73 million years ago.


0:24 – This is another dinosaur in the snow scene, which works quite well in the trailer. A lone Apatosaurus seems trapped in a logging site looking pretty sad for some reason. These sauropods are another one of Jurassic World Dominion’s herbivores and they date back to the late Jurassic Period (152 – 151 million years ago).


0:34 – Its time for some carnivores with the mainstay of the franchise, the Velociraptor. In archaeological terms, the depiction of the claw slashing beast in Jurassic Park and Jurassic World is off base with the real life specimens being much smaller. They lived during the late Cretaceous Period with dating of 75 to 71 million years ago.


1:00 – The marine carnivore is another creative embellishment. The behemoth from the films, which you can see chomping on the cage of bait in the trailer, is more than double the size of the largest known specimen. It’s another late Cretaceous Period dinosaur (100 to 66 million years ago) and they were wiped out by the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event.

Tyrannosaurus Rex

1:05 – The T-Rex has been a mainstay of the franchise since the very beginning and it’s still tearing up the place in the 6th film in the series. The cinema scene looks epic, but we’re expecting it to be a central dinosaur as ever, so it’ll be interesting to see how it fits into the culmination of the story. It originates from the late Cretaceous Period, so 68 to 66 million years ago.


2:03 – We’re not 100% sure where this Allosaurus came from. We didn’t see one in the escape at the end of Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, but that doesn’t count it out. Either the theory is that there were many dinosaurs that got out that we didn’t see or there’s another explanation.

We know that there are going to be dinosaurs that have not been seen before, which points to there being another source. We’ll talk about this a little more in the section at the bottom of the page. Allosaurus are big beast carnivores from the late Jurassic Period (155-145 million y.a.).


2:23 – Yet another classic, Triceratops is another late Cretaceous animal, with a similar time period to the Tyrannosaurus Rex.


2:30 – This fanged and frilled carnivore also goes back to Jurassic Park where it wracked up the second kill of the film, taking down Dennis Nedry just after the T-Rex chomps Gennaro. It’s from way back in the early Jurassic, so more than 190 million years ago.

Escaped Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom dinosaur list

The dinosaurs below haven’t been seen in Jurassic World Dominion to count them in for sure. However, the fact that they featured in the escape at the end of Fallen Kingdom is a pretty good sign that they will be.

Pachycephalosaurus (AKA Stygimoloch) – The dome head smasher is from the late Cretaceous Period.

Sinoceratops – These fancy relatives of the Triceratops originate in the late Cretaceous too, dating back to 73 million years ago.

Ankylosaurus – If we were to rename dinosaurs, we’d call Ankylosaurus Clobber Tails. They’re also from the late Cretaceous, ranging from 68 – 66 million years ago.

Stegosaurus – This well known herbivore with its large back plates and spiky tail is iconic. It’s from the late Jurassic, so 155 to 145 million years ago.

Gallimimus – A bit like a cross between a lizard and an ostrich, these fast running dinosaurs date back to the late Cretaceous.

Carnotaurus – It’s a little smaller than the T-Rex, but this horned carnivore is still pretty formidable.

Pteranodon – These flying menaces

Procompsognathus – The smallest dinosaur in the history of the Jurassic Park franchise, these date b

Unusual / hybrid dinosaurs from the Jurassic World Dominion trailer

Feathered Raptor

1:30 – At this stage, all bets are off as it looks like Dominion might have some new gene splicing going on. We know that the Indoraptor and Indominus Rex from the previous films are dead, but there’s this beast at 1:30. It could be an Utahraptor, but then it’s got weirdly long claws like it’s styling itself after Freddy Krueger. Utahraptors had longer claws than Velociraptors, but these just look too big. Although, with the point above about the Mosasaurus, we know that Colin Trevorrow isn’t above creative license.

Utahraptor / Feathered Raptor II

1:49 – Things get weirder when there’s another feathered raptor a little later in the trailer. It resembles a Utahraptor even more with less overgrown claws. It hasn’t been seen in the franchise to-date and its appearance here makes us think that the first feathered Raptor is actually some kind of hybrid. The Utahraptor is from the early Cretaceous Period (139-134 million y.a.).

Billed dinosaur

1:35 – Continuing on with the unusual dinosaur list, there’s a billed dinosaur roaring above some water in the trailer where Claire Dearing is hiding. It seems to follow the scene with the first Feathered Raptor, but Raptors don’t have bills, so it’s a bit of a mystery. We’ll update things here as we learn more.


2:19 – The last mysterious part of the trailer is the huge flying dinosaur that attacks Owen’s airplane in the sky. It has a different beak embellishment other species that have featured in the franchise and it seems to be larger. This points to Azhdarchisae, and a good fit would be the Hatzegopterix. It dates back to the late Cretaceous Period.

However, other members of the family could be options with the slightly larger Arambourgiania a contender too.
