“Look at how big this one was?”
“And now imagine a whole herd of those monsters ready to devour you.”
– Ellie Sattler
Mapusaurus was a carnivorous dinosaur from the genus of large theropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 97 million years ago. Mapusaurus is notable for its large size and is considered one of the largest theropods known from South America.
Mapusaurus was a large dinosaur, with estimates suggesting a length of around 33 to 39 feet (10 to 12 meters) or possibly even larger. It was similar in size to its close relative, Giganotosaurus.
As a theropod, Mapusaurus was a carnivorous predator. It likely preyed on large herbivorous dinosaurs that shared its environment, such as titanosaurs.
One curious fact about the Mapusaurus is the discovery of a large number of individuals (at least seven) found together in what is believed to be a potential social group or a mass death scene. This discovery has led to speculation about the social behaviour of these dinosaurs and whether they may have hunted in groups.
