Please answer if you figure out any part of this!

Dinosaur Names:
archaeopteryx
stegosaurus
velociraptor
concavenator
triceratops
kulindadromeus (kudos to user477343 for finding this one!)

Randomly choose a letter from each of the six words: last letter, 4th letter, 7th letter, 8th letter, 8th letter, 4th letter

Once I have chosen those letters, I need to unscramble them to make the name of a carnivorous species of dinosaur.

One of the fourth letters is definitely "h" from archaeopteryx.

    $\begingroup$ I edited the main post. I read the question again, and turns out the word to be unscrambled is a dinosaur SPECIES. Really good answers so far, though! I also added all the dinosaur names to the main post. $\endgroup$ – Lucy Apr 22 at 7:37

There is also another word in there (possibly the last word?):

KULINDADROMEUS

Dinosaur Crossword

The only problem is that you are looking for an R as the third letter, but the third letter here is

L

Looking for more words :)

    $\begingroup$ I was only looking for r as the third letter because I thought the answer might be raptor. Turns out that's not correct, so I think you've got the last word! $\endgroup$ – Lucy Apr 22 at 7:26
  • $\begingroup$ @Lucy Well, I couldn't find anymore, but looking at the other answers, I was surprised there were other dinosaurs found; I never heard of them! But anyway, it was a fun and unique crossword, though! I am a little busy today, so I can't look at this crossword now, but I will hopefully get a chance in later hours. Maybe one of us can figure out the last dinosaur word in the scrambling part, or maybe someone else, who knows? :) $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Apr 22 at 20:51

    $\begingroup$ I already know the answer, so now it is just a puzzle for you all for fun. ^_^ Take your time and we'll see if someone can figure it out. All the dinosaur names are there; now it's just a matter of getting a letter from each one and unscrambling them. $\endgroup$ – Lucy Apr 22 at 21:22

user477343 found the sixth name.
RAPTOR is not specific enough to be the answer.
There are few 6 letter dinosaur names, such as
ERKETU, RUGOPS, SHANAG,
but the only one that fits is

TANIUS 87348+last

    $\begingroup$ @aml I'm afraid that doesn't work either! You didn't use archaeopteryx for one of those letters. It's one letter from each name, unscrambled to find the name of a dinosaur species. Good guess, though! $\endgroup$ – Lucy Apr 22 at 7:44
  • $\begingroup$ Shoot -- the only other 6 letter dinosaur I know of is Barney. $\endgroup$ – amI Apr 22 at 8:15
  • $\begingroup$ Haha, keep trying! We also know it's a carnivorous species, if that helps. $\endgroup$ – Lucy Apr 22 at 8:18

I see:

IREX, ending in the first column, fifth letter down.

Adding the third letter,

PROTEA, which isn't a dinosaur, but is a prehistoric flower.

Probably not it, but a thought.

    $\begingroup$ +1 for the second word! :P $\endgroup$ – Mr Pie Apr 22 at 1:11
  • $\begingroup$ Not the words I'm looking for, but kudos for finding some unusual ones! $\endgroup$ – Lucy Apr 22 at 7:27
