Megalosaurus was a large, meat-eating dinosaur that were closely related to Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus. Evolution fact: Both Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus were evolved from Megalosaurus during the Cretaceous period. Most importantly, Megalosaurus was the first dinosaur fossil discovered by William Buckland in 1824 in the Bathonian formations, England. Megalosaurus, like its relatives, was a bipedal. It had a very, very, very small arm, but it had a powerful bite even powerful than the modern alligators. Megalosaurus was 9 m long and 3 m high, and weighed about 1 ton – 2 ton. Megalosaurus lived during the Jurassic period.
Megalosaurus was a carnivore, that hunted the large herbivores such as Adeopapposaurus and big sauropods such as Aeolosaurus. It was a large, fierce predator that could kill even larger sauropods than Aeolosaurus. Megalosaurus may also have been a scavenger.
