Mapusaurus was a huge dinosaur which lived approximately 100 million years ago during the late Cretaceous Period. Some paleontologist believe that this bipedal carnivore could run at a top speed of 30 miles per hour. If that is the case, then that would have made it significantly faster than a Tyrannosaurus Rex. It also would have made it more than fast enough to take down any of the herbivores that existed in South America at the time.
An interesting fact about Mapusaurus is that it is one of the largest carnivores to have ever been found. It is even bigger than Giganotosaurus and Tyrannosaurus Rex. However, it still wouldn’t be as large as a
Spinosaurus—which is still the largest carnivore of all time and unlikely to be unseated from that title anytime soon.
