INFORMATION
Cynognathus is a Triassic Period reptile with mammalian qualities and has been nicknamed the 'dog-reptile'. Trans-Time has given it a rating of 7.

Giant Plant-Eaters are the Jurassic Period animals that Trans-Time come to catch, including the Brotosaurus or Apatosaurus, Diplodocus, Camarasaurus and Brachiosaurus. The latter of these grows to thirty metres in length. Trans-Time suggests that employees stay well clear and there are numerous examples of incidents what happened when they didn't. They have given them a rating of 4.

Bone-Headed Dinosaurs are from the Cretaceous Period. Their skulls are five times thicker than that of a human, but their brain is the size of a hen's egg. They use their heads like battering rams.
