The Deltadromeus was a dinosaur who lived in the late Cretaceous period about 112 to 90 million years ago.
Quick Delta Runner
The Deltadromeus lived in today's Africa and could reach 8 meters of lenght. Deltadromeus stands for ‘Delta Runner’, the dinosaur was super fast with his long legs. This certainly helped in catching his prey. The Deltadromeus was a carnivore.
Time of the great hunters
The Deltadromeus belonged to the Theropoda, an important group of carnivorous dinosaurs on two legs. With his 8 meters, he was only average of height. Undoubtedly his speed helped to escape the huge Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus with whom he shared the African continent.
These teeth where found in the Kem Kem formation at the borders of Morocco and Algeria. This formation is a geological formation that dates from the cretaceous era and houses a wealth of information and fossils.
