Below is a sampling of carnivorous dinosaurs of the Cretaceous Period as presented at "The Dinosaur Place", a park in Montville, Connecticut, USA devoted to life-sized interpretations of dinosaurs.   Since the dinosaur reconstructions are based on fossil evidence, much interpretation is required before a life-like figure is constructed.   The fossil evidence usually includes bones and teeth.   Skin, internal organs, and outer appearance are usually missing.   Existing reptiles are often used as a guide.   The Dinosaur Place has used some interesting color schemes for some of their interpretations.
