Film: Unknown Island (1947)
Alias: Apatosaurus, Dimetrodon, Ceratosaurus, Meat-eating Megatherium
Height/Weight: Ranges from that of a car to that of a small building.
Summary: Well there's something you don't see every day. A movie in the pre-60's that's totally in color. That must mean this film is going to be really impressive, right? Oh, you poor, naive little ones...
History: Somewhere in the French-Polynesian isles, there is a place that has not changed for millions of years. It is a cornucopia of species that all existed at way different times. But be warned, because even the creatures we've accepted as herbivores have unhappy surprises in store. As proven by the big gori-I mean sloth.
Notable Kills: See Final Fate.
Final Fate: Several Ceratosaurs are shot, while one is violently shoved off a cliff by the goril-DAMMIT! I meant sloth.
Powers/Abilities: Nothing except brute strength.
Weakness: Anything conventional.
Scariness Factor: 2-We dare you to take a good long look at the Ceratosaurs and not burst into laughter. From their lobotomized-looking faces to their incessant honking to their waddling, they might be the poorest excuse for therapods in film ever (maybe). As for everyone else, pretty alright, but dear God, WE CAN TELL THAT YOU'RE RIDING THE COATAILS OF KING KONG, SO STOP CALLING THAT GORILLA A SLOTH!!!!!!
Trivia: -The actual Megatherium of South America was not only a vegetarian, but one of the largest mammals to have ever lived, even though it faced stiff competition in that regard. It did have good offensive claws and some say it fed on carrion occasionally.
-The purpose of the Ceratosaurus nasal horn has been a subject of hot debate, with some saying that it's a specialized weapon while others say that it's used for mating rights. The latter theory has been given much more support as of recently.
