Here’s my latest Dinosaur image. This is a Torvosaurus on the prowl with a group of Ornitholestes in the foreground.
The Torvosaurus tanneri was a large theropod dinosaur that lived during the late Jurassic period, about 145 million years ago, in North America and Portugal.
It lived alongside the more famous Allosaurus which it equalled and even exceeded in size at up to 11 meters (36ft) in length.
It was related to the earlier Megalosaurus but was more advanced.
The Ornitholestes was a small theropod of the same period and location. It was about 2 meters (6.5 feet) long.
