I’ve been watching the new BBC series Planet Dinosaur over the last few weeks. I think its pretty good really and they are at least trying to backup their claims with actual finds which is more than can be said for some programs.

Anyway in the latest episode they had the Majungasaurus. As I haven't had time to do a new image this week I thought I'd put my version up, an image I did a while ago.

The Majungasaurus was an abelisaurid theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Madagascar about 70 – 65 million years. It was between 6 to 7 metres long though it is thought that the specimens found are not fully grown and that an adult Majungasaurus could reach up to 8 metres.

Well he looks pretty ferocious to me :)
