This dinosaur is a mystery.
The only remains of him are found by Ernst Stromer in the Baharia oasis in egypt. But the bones were destroyed during the second world war.

This is Amazing ! :O


This is possibly the most unknown/underrated Gigantic dinosaur ever (I read it is bigger than Rex)

Well, it's so fragmentary and also lost that I wouldn't even use the name in the moment =)

I hope its a real species; there are quite a lot of dinosaur fossil's get lost un time & museums

Is this basically a deltadromeus miss identified.

Maybe, we need more fossils to clarify the identity of these theropods

Oh! Die Statur erinnert mich an meinen Lieblingssaurier: Allosaurus! :heart:

Nice picture, I especially like the red eyes!

Bahariasaurus is a mystery alright. Many classify him and Deltadromeus( which I think is a close relative not a synonym of Bahariasaurus) as Ceratosaurian theropods of unknown placement. However, I think they are more closely related to the Noasaurids than to any other Theropods. When examining there leg bones, they're long and slender which is common in Noasaurids. Besides the size difference, Bahariasaurus and Noasaurids are similar in alot of ways. If only a skull was discovered it would have cleared up all of the confusion.

I have never thought so much about the taxonimic position of this two (or one) genera, but there are indeed similarities... it would be a intersting question what factors lead to giants like this.

Ikr, I agree!

many think it is the adult of Deltadromeus, and if so, that will double its size.

I know, but when I draw this my knowledge was on a lower level ;)

truthfully, my opinion is that i think bahariasaurus may be something else until evidence proves otherwise.

Cool creature. Sad the remains were destroyed :(

yes, though some say deltadromeus and bahariasaurus were the same. i dont believe that, there were minor differences beetween bahriasaurus and Deltadromeus.
also i think IPHG 1912 VIII isnt a deltadromeus, as also in that fossil soem differences are present.

Also there is a good news, Bahariasaurids were also present in South america not only in africa, the south american "Bahariasaur" is perhaps even bigger than the African one.

Where was that found, Brazil? There is also supposed to be Sigilmassasaurus specimens there and the Bahariasaurid material was described as 'doubtful'.
Skull-Island-Master's avatar
it was found in Laje do Coringa. i dont know where you got the info that its doubtful, all sources i know indicate that it is most likley a bahariasaurid.
Floyatoy's avatar
I just read it in a recent abstract (I'm not sure on the rules for posting links) regarding some Brazilian fossil fauna. I haven't read the paper itself.

Whatever it and the Brazilian Sigilmassasaurus may be, I just hope it gets described and we learn more about these groups of dinosaurs.

i know it, yes it says doubtfully bahariasaurus. well its clearly not a bahariasaurus itself, but a relative. Like deltadromeus also had some differneces beetweenn bahariasaurus. tyrannosaurus had differences from albertosaurus etc.
