The massive bulldog-faced dinosaur was like a T. rex on steroids

One of the world’s most dangerous prehistoric ecosystems just added another huge predator to its formation. In the Bahariya Formation, a famous fossil site in Egypt Sahara desertA team of Egyptian and American paleontologists recently discovered a huge fossil vertebra belonging to a new species of carnivorous abelisaurid dinosaur, a bipedal carnivorous group that lived during the Cretaceous period (145 million to 66 million years ago).

Like other abelisaurids, the new dinosaur had a shortened, bulldog-like face. And despite his ferocious appearance, this carnivore probably wasn’t the biggest and meanest boss to roam its trampling grounds.
