When most people stop to think about dinosaurs, the images of the most famous, classic dinosaurs quickly rise to the forefront of our minds – the Tyrannosaurus Rex or the Triceratops, for example. However, in reality, there were thousands more species that human kind has probably never seen or even heard of. Each year, it appears scientists discover even more dinosaurs than what we thought was originally possible. It is incredible to think these beasts once wandered the planet so many years prior to humanity. Here are ten dinosaurs the world only just discovered.

Sauroniops Pachytholus

Sauroniops Pachytholus is a carnivorous dinosaur that is said to be about the same size as the T. Rex. The name comes from Sauron, of The Lord of the Rings fame. The only specimen scientists found was a massive eye socket from the creature.


Eodromaeus, or “Dawn Runner,” lived around 230 million years ago, and scientists believe it was the ancestor of the original T. Rex. The creature had a lot of similarities, including air pockets within the skull and a tail made for balancing.
