Re: Neovenatoridae and Megaraptora: now it can be told!



It's starting to look like the megaraptora were common predators in the Early 
Cretaceous of 
Australia. So far we've got:

Dinosaur Cove ulna (106 MYA) compared to Megaraptor

Strzelecki Group 'allosauroid' astragalus (115 MYA) originally compared to 
Fukuiraptor

Winton Formation (latest Albian) Australovenator wintonensis (with the 
Strzeleki Group astragalus 
possible refered to Australovenator sp.)

Now I'm wondering how Timimus might compare to megaraptorans...
