Dreadnoughtus is an extinct genus of titanosaur sauropod dinosaur that lived in South America during the Late Cretaceous period. It is the most complete titanosaur ever discovered, and is widely considered the heaviest dinosaur to ever exist. The holotype fossil is considered a juvenile, however, so it's likely Dreadnoughtus could grow much larger.

This skin of Dreadnoughtus was unclear that it was darker, but it was revealed to have darker orange stripes and brown skin.

History

Jurassic World: Dominion prologue

During a flashback of the Cretaceous, some Dreadnoughtus were seen near a lake with a flock of Pteranodons and a quartet of Quetzalcoatlus. A giant locust buzzed on and around an individual's legs as it walked over to join its herd.

Jurassic World

Dreadnoughtus is one of the animals on the Innovation Center's holographic globe.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The embryo of a Dreadnoughtus was sold at the Lockwood Manor Auction, and is seen being loaded onto a plane within a briefcase along with other embryos.

Jurassic World Dominion

Dreadnoughtus were cloned sometime before 2022 by Biosyn and resided in the Biosyn Sanctuary located in the Dolomites Mountains, Italy. The clones'appearance was somewhat similar to their genetic template and original counterpart, possessing a typical sauropod's bulky stature and thick elongated neck which could rise up, although not as high as fellow sauropod Brachiosaurus. The cloned Dreadnoughtus apparently are able to chew their food whereas their original counterpart most likely swallowed their food whole and ground it up with gastrolithes. This dinosaur was the largest species to be housed in the sanctuary. Upon arrival at the Sanctuary, Alan Grant, Ellie Sattler and Ramsay Cole pass by a Dreadnoughtus bathing in a lake.

When the burning giant locusts escaped and set the forest ablaze, at least two Dreadnoughtus are seen escaping the forest fire by getting evacuated to the emergency containment zone alongside many other dinosaurs, and when landing to retrieve the reunited group, Kayla Watts almost collides with an individual that passes by and vanishes into the treelines.

It is possibly assumed for the Dreadnoughtus to be out in the wild and it can be assumed it still resides in the abandoned sanctuary, which has been repurposed as an international preserve to this day.
