Just when you think you've seen it all, along comes the Therizinosaurus. And believe it or not, those huge claws you see? They actually helped to feed on vegetation. For real! But er... just do me one favor, OK? Don't let it near my hair with those things!

Therizinosaurus is a genus of theropod dinosaur that originated from Late Cretaceous Asia. It is part of the Dominion Biosyn Expansion.

History

While InGen was not known to have cloned Therizinosaurus for either Jurassic Park or Jurassic World, by 2012, the company had possession of the herbivore's genetic material. This was later used, along with the DNA of numerous other species, to create the genetically modified superpredator known as the Indominus rex,[1] which was responsible for the destruction of Jurassic World in 2015.[2]

A Therizinosaurus was present in the sanctuary created by BioSyn, and it stalked Claire Dearing when she landed in its territory before losing interest. The Therizinosaurus was later provoked by Kayla Watts to aid the Tyrannosaurus in fighting and killing the Giganotosaurus, allowing Owen Grady, Claire Dearing, Maisie Lockwood, and Ramsay Cole to board the helicopter alongside Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler, Ian Malcolm, and Henry Wu.[3]

Characteristics

The largest of the therizinosaurids, Therizinosaurus was a massive animal known for possessing enormous claws on its forearms.
