Odiosusaurus - means "hated lizard". This animal lived 70 million years ago in late Cretaceous. It inhabited icy lands of the north. This rare dinosaur has an genetic defect its body did not produced skin cells, so animal with only bones and muscles looked like a zombie lizard.

Concept: Zombie Dinosaur
The era of the dinosaur is over, but still there is one last survivior of this long forgotten time- the Zombie Dinosaur. It endured all those millions of years in the deep ice- But the ice began to melt and the old spell that keeps the dinosaur alive woke him up. Now he roams around, searching for preys to lessen his unlimited thirst for blood..

65 million years ago, a small meteor hit the planet. the impact was very violent, and only a few species survived. There was one species which suddenly seemed to be infected with a strange disease. The Nekrosiosaurus started to mindlessly devour the other species on the planet. Eventual y when there were no other dinosaurs left, they started to devour each other and finally themselves, leading to the complete extinction of all the dinosaurs.

A sauropod based on a mix of diplodocus and Mamenchisaurus. I have worked with the idea of a vegetarian and peaceable saurus turned to a carnivorous, agressive and dangerous dinosaur zombie.
The Caninosaurus' dog-like appearance is what give it its name, and it is theorized that it scavenged for its food. Sometimes it would feast upon undead (i.e., zombie) corpses and become infected. Like any other undead, the zombie Caninosaurus had a voracious appetite for flesh and could spend years roaming the earth looking for its next meal.
These brutish lizards once stalked the jungles, millions of years ago, in what is now North Africa, chasing prey in packs similar to today's wolf. Through arcane ritual, ancient priests of Egypt summoned the fossils, knitting bone and flesh through time itself to resurrect them as guardians of the most secret of tombs. Unaware of their still rotting flesh they roam underground halls underneath the desert to this day.
Once a great aerial predator, evolution had another use in mind. This de-evolved pterosaur stalks the land yet again in undeath.
Concept: The Old Scabby One
The Old Scabby one was resurrected from his desert grave by an angsty teenage goth using a mish-mash of dodgy stolen equipment. As the first ray of lightning from the vortex of storm hit the ray grabber, and the ground soon after began to tremble, the spotty teen knew his dreams of destruction would soon come to fruition.

The Thuskiosaurus survided "the great death" by eating the brains of the dead. Dinos beeing known for having peas for brains didn't last long as a food source.

My path of learning (sb)
This is based on the supposition that spinosaurs evolved from proto crocodiles - this being an intermediary species. Also presented is the idea that rather than an sail, (for what good would a ridge of exposed bone do?) the spiny ridges supported a massive hump of back fat - which was useful for bouyancey in the water.
As you can see, the hump of back fat was an excellent source of nutrition for parasitic human sailor zombies from the 1930s, who, after being swallowed by a hapless creature, would burst forth from the now-zombified host, and use this unwitting beast-of-burden as an edible transport.
In dark ''Wood of Death'', the traveller has found out, a huge being, in which stomach there was a small copy of the big. Probably it was some kind of mind and force symbiosis. The being strongly stank and reminded a rotten corpse...

Concept: Herrerasaurus-Mutoid Type B
Herrerasaurus-Mutoid Type B is a mutoid reproductive result from second generation chromosome YX carrying pair of dinosaur species Herrerasaurus.
This mutant species is carnivorous, nocturnal-carrion, and cannibalistic. In absence of ample carcass for feeding, it will resolve to predatory and violent behavior.
Speculative research indicate that this species is immune and/or resistant to many types of toxins and pathogen microorganisms. It is also revealed that the carsinogenic agent which triggers this mutation has similar properties with beer.

The Cryptosaurus was the only Dinosaur that developed the ability to reanimate after death. This evolution allowed the species to survive the great extinction, emerging from the death and destruction to feast on the remains of the fallen.

The comet carried with it a virus older than our world. A virus able to inhabit and revitalize recently dead flesh.
Concept: The Stephanosaurus
In 1818, the great American cryptozoologist Dr. Stephanie Hanson set sail for Japan, in earnest search for the mythic and legendary beast the Japanese respectfully called "The Dragon of the Living and the Dead". She searched many years for the elusive creature, but it could never be found. it seemed that all hope was lost. She decided to finally set sail for home, after years of fruitless searching. Before she left, however, she decided to scale Mt. Fuji by herself (in order to achieve at least something on her trip). Upon reaching the snowy summit, a dreadful stench engulfed her nostrils. A hideous, rotted carcass rested at her feet. Impossibly, It resembled a dinosaur; a dinosaur that no doubt had been perfectly preserved by the cold and snow of the great mountain. Suddenly it moved. the very carcass stood up on it's damaged,animated legs and let out a gigantic roar, a roar that greatly echoed throughout the entire mountain. She had found it at last, The legendary "Dragon of the Living and the Dead".
The rescue expedition that was sent to find her came back to the base of Mt. Fuji with only her right hand and pieces of her scalp.
This 3-piece wood block print of "The Dragon of the Living and the Dead" was executed by Hokusai in late 1832, in honor of her work and untimely death.
(A significant portion of the third right panel was damaged in 2009 when an American tourist spilled the contents of his chili dog on it. He will be let out of Japanese prison in early 2034)

Return of the Zombie dinosaurs
Many believe that a meteor caused the death of dinosaurs, and a multitude of other species of animals, during the Cretaceous–Tertiary extinction event, but new technology has uncovered the truth. A virus now believed to have first appeared in the species Coronasaurus is believed to be the cause.
Coronasaurus were 39 foot long predators of the Cretaceous, towards the later half of the Cretaceous they contracted a highly contagious virus. Within a matter of days after contracting the virus the host's soft innards would be consumed and the creature would bleed to death. However, they did not stay dead, the virus would essentially restart the dinosaurs body so that it could continue to synonymously feed and transmit the virus.
After several weeks the dinosaur's rotting body would collapse in a festering pile unable to hunt for the virus any more. Many scavenging species were still able to contract the virus from infected carcasses. Relatively quickly the virus had spread around the world causing the mass extinction.
Bellow is an artist's rendering of what an infected Coronasaurus might have looked like after being reanimated.
Concept: Carcharocles Megalodon semimortuus (dead dinosaur)
The "Carcharocles Megalodon semimortuus", also known as "dead dinosaur" or "dead megashark" was a so called superpredator that lived in prehistoric times during the late Oligocene epoch and Neogene period, approximately 25 to 1.5 million years ago. A symbiotic mutation (symbiotic bacteries situated in the gills) with divides it from the typical C.Megalodon and gives it the ability to live on after its physical death as long as brain and lungs/gills are not damaged. The body starts to rotten soon after death - his ability to terrorize prehistoric seas remains since his cerebral system stays active on a low-level even if the C.M.S.´s heart has stopped beating.
