Facts

Allosaurus's front hands had 3 claws on each, not two like T-Rex.

Allosaurus has been called the "great-great grandfather" of T-rex. It was a frightening killing machine.

Allosaurus would kill by grabbing its victim with its front arms and making terrible wounds with its razor-sharp claws. With its sharp teeth it would tear off chunks of flesh.
