Comments

Australovenator is a genus of neovenatorid theropod that existed during the Cenomanian Epoch of the Cretacious Period between 100 and 95 million years ago. It has been identified from comprehensive limb bone, ribs and lower jaw remains and was described by vertebrate paleontologist Dr Scott Hocknull and colleagues in 2009.
