Majungasaurus Teeth

Majungasaurus Teeth World History Film Archeological Wonders

Majungasaurus was a theropod dinosaur who, before it became extinct, lived on the island of Madagascar. Other theropods include Tyrannosaurus, Allosaurus and Spinosaurus.

Fossilized Majungasaurus remains were uncovered near the town of Berivotra in northern Madagascar. Today a skull cast, of those remains, is publicly displayed at Chicago's Field Museum.

Majungasaurus is also known for its teeth. It is especially known for teeth marks which Ray Rogers and Kristi Curry Rogers found (in 2003) on other Majungasaurus bones. This finding has led researchers to conclude that this dinosaur may also have been a cannibal.
