Acrocanthosaurus Atokensis

Height: 15.9 feet
Weight: 6 tons
Length: 45 feet
Male: Various shades of light and dark green with crooked, black striping shaped like a very loose honeycomb figure. Underbelly is light greenish yellow with shades of pale white. Eye's are either green or brown with slitted, black pupils. Small sail on the back is vibrant yellowish red with small, jagged black stripes.
Young Male: Light green with smaller, faint black striping. Eye's are black, slitted, and are colored either brown or green. Underbelly is pale yellowish white. Sail on the back is almost missing, but what is there, is colored light orangish yellow.
Female: Greenish yellow with smaller black, loose honeycomb-shaped striping. Eye's are black, slitted and are either colored yellow or brown. Underbelly is pale yellowish white. Sail is slightly smaller than the males, and is colored orangish yellow with smaller, brownish black, jagged stripes.
Young Female: Dull yellow with faint brownish black striping. White underbelly with either yellow or brown eye's. Sail is either missing or very small, but will regardlessly be colored dull yellow.

Preferred Habitat: Open grasslands with little to no trees, or sparse Redwood Forests and Jungles.
Diet: When alone, adult Acrocanthosaurus can take down large hadrosaurs like Parasaurolophus and Corythosaurus, but when in hunting packs, however, they can take down large sauropods like Brachiosaurus and small to medium-sized Seismosaurus.
Family: Acrocanthosauridae
Social Structure: Solitary or in breeding pairs. Will occasionally team up with other Acrocanthosaurus to take down large game like Brachiosaurus and small Seismosaurus.
Description: Large, bipedal carnivore looking strikingly simular to Allosaurus, except for the small sail thar runs down the individuals neck, back and tail. Long, muscular tail used for balance and to also whap at attackers and rivals. Long, powerful hind legs with 3 toes with sharp claws on each toe. Muscular, long forearms tipped with 3 fingers with hooking claws. Skull shaped and designed like a Allosaurus or an Torvosaurus. Small sail that runs along the tail, back and neck.
Behavior: Acrocanthosaurus is currently the fourth largest carnosaur on Isla Sorna. Measuring a little smaller than a fully grown Tyrannosaurus Rex, and bigger than an adult Allosaurus, it is an averge carnosaur. Regardless, their is one feature about Acrocanthosaurus that sets it apart from other carnosaurs; a low sail on it's back. Bigger in males, these are used not only for thermal regulation, as in cooling or heating up the animal, but also gives it added strength, as it's muscle attatchment connects with it's jaws, arms and legs, giving it more powerful speed and flexibility, as well as a bit stronger jaw force than a regular carnosaur would have. Both genders of Acrocanthosaurus are extremely aggresive towards other carnosaurs and rival Acrocanthosaurs. In fact, a regular breeding pair of Acrocanthosaurus usually doesnt last long; the male leaves usually around the time the chicks hatched, chased away by the aggresive female. Like Allosaurus, female Acrocanthosaurus will only allow males into her territory during the breeding season. Breeding duels are usually very intense, and almost always blood will be drawn. Unfortunately for the loser Acrocanthosaur, the new breeding pair will often chase down the loser, kill it, then cannibalize it's remains. After that, it will use it's skeleton as "play toys" for the chicks when they hatch. After the male leaves, the female Acrocanthosaur will construct a large mound nest made of bones from previous carcasses, dung, and mud. Some will even pour water from her mouth to soak the mounds to make it wet, where it will dry up and become strong. Like female Allosaurus, the female Acrocanthosaurus will chase out the remaining chicks by the time they become the size of a Herrerasaurus, when they have reached adolescense. Acrocanthosaurus is distinctly related to Spinosaurus and Allosaurus, the Allosaurus part where they have robust skulls and long, muscular, three-fingered forearms, and on the Spinosaurus part where they have the low sail on the back, used for thermal regulation. Because of it's strong skeletal build and it's reinforced muscle attachment, Acrocanthosaurus are capable of taking down large hadrosaurs like Parasaurolophus and Iguanodon single-handedly. Unfortunately, evolution has treated Acrocanthosaurus badly. Because of the added bulk on it's body, and the weight of the sail, Acrocanthosaurus is generally slower than other carnosaurs like Tyrannosaurus or Allosaurus. Depsite this, Acrocanthosaurus can make big bursts of speed, able to reach speeds of up to thirty miles per hour in a burst of speed.
Additional Information: Because of it's skeletal structure, and how it did not fit into existing dinosaur categories, Acrocanthosaurus now got it's own family, called the Acrocanthosauridae. This is the reason Acrocanthosaurus is labeled under the Acrocanthosauridae family instead of other families like the Allosauridae or Spinosauridae.
Maximum Age: The maximum age an Acrocanthosaurus adult can reach is 29.8 years.
