“Anytime you hear the word “Mega”, you know you’re dealing with something significant, and the Megalosaurus is no different. This meat-eating theropod dominates any environment it finds itself in. While that’s an admirable survival trait, it’s also one that we cannot accept here at the park. I want to make that clear.

Megalosaurus is one of the most significant and historically important dinosaurs in the field of paleontology. It was the first dinosaur to be scientifically described and named, marking the beginning of the study of these ancient creatures.
The Megalosaurus is classified as a theropod dinosaur, belonging to the group of saurischian dinosaurs. It was a carnivorous dinosaur, likely preying on other small to medium-sized animals.
It was estimated to have reached lengths of around 20 to 30 feet (6 to 9 meters) and standing at a height of about 10 feet (3 meters) at the hips. It had a relatively large head with sharp teeth, a long tail for balance, and powerful hind limbs for swift movement and hunting.
Megalosaurus was first described by the British geologist William Buckland in 1824. The name “Megalosaurus” comes from Greek words “megas” (meaning “great” or “large”) and “sauros” (meaning “lizard”). It was named based on fossil remains found in England, specifically in the Stonesfield Slate of Oxfordshire.
