Afrovenator is the most complete predatory dinosaur from the Cretaceous period ever discovered in Africa. Its skull has rows of long, blade-shaped teeth for slicing into prey, and its bones reveal that it was a cousin to Allosaurus, a 150-million-year-old dinosaur that lived in North America. However, Afrovenator has longer, more slender bones and was likely more lightweight and fleet-footed than Allosaurus
