Titanic Children's Resources

Not really a titanic day for kid's resources; it is another day where I borrow a little info, reorganize some of it, and make my own fact page actually. Nothing wrong with that, but let us get it going!


Tyrannotitan (Greek for "giant tyrant"); pronounced tih-RAN-no-TIE-tan
chubutensis; from the Chubut Province in Argentina


Woodlands of South America

Historical Period:

Middle Cretaceous (120-110 million years ago)

Size and Weight:

About 40 feet long; weight unknown but estimated between 4 and 7 tons


Meat (carnivore)
Most likely ate sauropods such as Chubutisaurus and Amazonsaurus

Distinguishing Characteristics:

Giant size; small arms

Additionally, Brett Booth, whose drawings were posted yesterday, also had an initial uncolored line drawing of Tyrannotitan on his other blog which could be used for coloring purposes. Also, there is a much less scientifically accurate Tyrannotitan that is available for coloring at this link, but please do follow the illustrator's instructions.
Mr Booth's initial sketch is a little light, but it could be used for coloring.
