So, without further ado, here are all the ancient animals found in Pakistan:

2. Khetranisaurus – Khetranisaurus was another herbivorous sauropod, that was first found in Balochistan. It is also a Titanosaurid


3. Marisaurus – This dinosaur was yet again a herbivorous sauropod. It is also included in the family of  Titanosauria, and it was also found in Balochistan, in Western Pakistan.


4. Pakisaurus – This dinosaur was found yet again in Balochistan. It is also a Titanosaurid, like all the others.


5. Sulaimanisaurus – Yet again, this was a herbivorous sauropod, and guess what? It was a Titanosaurid too.


6. Brohisaurus – Yes, it was a herbivore. Yes, it was a Sauropod, Yes it was found in Balochistan, but it was not a Titanosaurid!
