Day 11: As you can probably guess from its name, Australovenator wintonensis came from Australia, and dates from the later Cretaceous (about 95 million years ago). A smallish hunter, it probably relied on speed more than strength, and as such, rather than having the huge head and massive jaws of some of the more famous carnivorous dinosaurs, Australovenator had what appear to be very agile hands, and more manoeuvrable arms than was normal for its kind. Like all the therapods, it was bipedal, and probably used its hands to hold onto its prey.
