Bahariasaurus by Hyrotrioskjan Bahariasaurus by Hyrotrioskjan
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

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.

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

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

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'.

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.

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.

Didnt knew that. Although slighty different specimens may indicate diferent gender ou indivual differences, too. I read, some time ago, that Torosaurus might be the males of the Triceratops, being the last one the female phenotype. I actually think that makes a lot of sense. Always thought them too similar to be different species.

maybe. we need more fossils of deltadromeus and bahariasaurus to be 100 % sure though.

Indeed!

But is always cool to speculate and follow new discoveries, anyway :)

Do tell more! I always believed these were late surviving basal coelurosaurs. Not large noasaurids. There isn't much to compare them with. Maybe they are just too unique. Then again Elaphrosaurus and Limusaurus are very unique. But those lived wayy before Deltadromeus and Bahariasaurus did. I don't feel they make good comparisons based on stratagraphic analysis.

i doubt they are coelurosaurs, there are just too many differences. the new founds show similarities to noasaurids still it is not 100% sure if they really belonged to them, another possibility is that they are just another family within Abelisauroidae. But the theory that they were basal ceratosaurs releated to limusaurus can be rejected because a chin, fingers and parts of the femur were found of the new bahariasaurid, it was indeed a carnivore not an herbivore.

I wanna say they are their own unique thing. Limusaurus should be its own unique thing. It's a ceratosaur, no doubt, but not a real ceratosaur. Hopefully we'll find more limusaurids and bahariasaurids in the future.

i agree that they are very unique animals. unfortunatley i dont know more about the south american one. still i would find it intresitng if deltadromeus was a sperate animal or not, i beleive it was a smaller relative of bahariasaurus. i also doubt that IPHG 1912 VIII is a deltadromeus.

Die Bahariasaurier sind in der Tat mysteriös, allerdings wurden ja in südamerika Verwandte entdeckt,d ie aus der selben formation wie der Oxalaia stammen, allerdings wurden sie noch nicht beschrieben

Der südamerikanische Verwandte ist sogar größer als Bahariasaurus selbst.

jaja, südamerika wahr wohl wirklich das land der riesen-riesen abelisaurier(Ekrixinatosaurus) riesen leischfresser wie oxalaia und giganotosaurus, riesen sauropoden wie argentinosaurus und jetzt nen riesen Bahariasaurier!
