Re: Huge predator from India
The dinosaur? you are referring to is Bruhathkayosaurus (pronounced:
broo-hath-kay-oh-SORE-us) meaning "huge body lizard. It is based on very
fragmented material all of which may or may not be dinosaurian. If the
femur is theropod (probably not) it would be extremely large. The
dinosaur is considered at best questionable until more material is
found. It lived in the late Cretaceous, of India, and is probably
related to Carnotaurus.
