Deltadromeus agilis by EmperorDinobot Deltadromeus agilis by EmperorDinobot
The African Deltadromeus appears to have been a big noasaurid, as opposed to a random coelurosaurian, as it was thought of as before. It's based on a postcranial skeleton lacking the skull, the ends, and other anterior parts.

one of the coolest dinosaurs ever. It seems that this creature was very aggressive, two very dangerous carnivores lived in the same time and place: spinosaurus and carcharodontosaurus, still it lived longer than both.

It seems this creature HAS NO SKULL. :(

I think Spinosaurus was a lumbering fat carnivorous manic depressive cow. Carcharodontosaurus, on the other hand....Uuugh.

i really hope they find a skull one day. I also hope that detladromeus is a carnivore and not a relative of limusaurus or elaphrosaurus. Noasaurs rock, i think that i like them because they are a quit mysterious family, we dont know much about them, i think they were agile, intelligent hunters the abelisaurian answer to raptors.

Omg that gives me an awesome drawing idea. Deltadromeus WITH A TOOTHLESS MOUTH.
They were indeed the abelisaurian answer to raptors but they also had very strange and unique features, such as the long neck, big deep head in Noasaurus, the funky teeth on Masiakasaurus, super-gracile short-legged Elaphrosaurus, and Velocisaurus had running legs (not unlike Limusaurus). Deltadromeus/Bahariasaurus was just large. That was its specialization, maybe to compete with giant theropods and gigantic prey in the Mid-Cretaceous Sahara.

But how big was it? Some sources have it as smallish, others put it as one of the largest theropods...

About 5-6 meters. Some say it was 8 meters. Some say it's a subadult and that it could have been as big as Carcharodontosaurus. Thing is...we only got the tail, the hindlimbs, and some other sparse remains from the torso.
