Happy Monday!

Today's dino is the Afrovenator:

Afrovenator was a theropod dinosaur from the mid Jurassic Period of northern Africa. It was a bipedal meat-eating, three-fingered, stiff-tailedpredator that had 2-inch-long bladelike teeth. It was related to Allosaurus. Fossils have been found in Abaka, Niger in the southern Sahara desert. A nearly complete Afrovenator was found in 1993. It is the most complete Cretaceous period carnivore found in Africa so far.
