At about 33 feet long, weighing 4 to 5 tons and baring large blade-shaped teeth, the dinosaur Torvosaurus gurneyi was a formidable creature.
"I suppose it wouldn't be a good idea to cross the way of this dinosaur," said Christophe Hendrickx, doctoral candidate at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa in Portugal.
Thanks to Hendrickx and paleontologist Octavio Mateus, Torvosaurus gurneyi may have the distinction of being the largest terrestrial predator found in Europe. Hendrickx and Mateus describe this dinosaur in a new study in the journal PLOS One.

Can you imagine yourself with this beast in front of you ? ....I bet our ancestors would beat Usain Bolt by far, lol

Not a cryptid should probably move this to a diiferent forum. It's a shame they didn'tfind more of this fossil though.

Think you`r right, this should be moved to other forum, Origins and Creationism maybe, my mistake.
