Afrovenator, meaning "African Hunter", was a middle Jurassic megalosauroid theropod dinosaur from Niger, Africa, about 167-157 million years ago. Typical of megalosaurs, Afrovenator had a boxy skull filled with sharp teeth, built for a life of terrestrial predation. It measured 20-23 feet long and weighed a relatively light 0.9 tons.
