It is known from a single, nearly complete skeleton missing only part of the tail and most of the forelimbs. Skorpiovenator is derived from the Greek...

Rugops, meaning "wrinkle face", was a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Cenomanian stage of the Late Cretaceous Period (95 million years ago). It inhabited what is now Africa. The skull of the Rugops was found in Niger in 2000 and was a critical breakthrough in the understanding of theropods in that area. Rugops was 24 to 30 feet in length and stood about 8 feet high at the hip. It was a large carnivore, but based on the skull having had armor or scale plating, Dr. Paul Sereno, who led...

Labocania, meaning "red lips"(named for the La Bocana Roja Formation), is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Campanian age of the Late Cretaceous Period (70 million years ago). It lived in what is now Baja California, Mexico. The type species, L. anomala, was described in 1974 by Ralph Molnar. Labocania is known only from fragmentary remains, and its physical characteristics are not well known. There is some speculation that it may be closely similar to tyrannosaurid dinosaurs, but...
