Torvosaurus ("Savage" or "Wild Lizard") was a genus of huge species of megalosáurido carnivorous theropod dinosaur that lived in the late Jurassic period, about 145 to 150 million years ago in the Kimmeridgian and Tithonian, in what is now Europe and North America .



Torvosaurus lived during the Late Jurassic Era, over 150 million years ago. It was one of the top predators of its time, after Allosaurus.


Torvosaurus was one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs that ever lived. They stood about 4 meters tall, reached a length of 9 to 12 meters, could exceed 2-4 tons, making it almost as large as Allosaurus.


Torvosaurus fossels have been found in both the Morrison Formation of the United States and in the formation Lourinha Portugal.
