Megalosaurids

The Megalosauaridae was a family of very large, bipedal carnosaurs. Their heads were slightly built, high and narrow, but strengthened by bony ridges and equipped with powerful jaws lined with serrated fangs. Their arms were short and strong, with three large clawed digits, their hind limbs large and powerful. There were three large, clawed toes and a small, backwardly-di-rected, fourth toe. About 15 genera have been described, some of them rather doubtful, mainly from Europe and Asia and dating from the Early Jurassic to the Late Cretaceous. Megalosaurids may well have seized their prey with their clawed hands and feet, while taking large bites of flesh (Lambert 1992).
