Metriacanthosaurus was a large theropod that once hunted across Europe. Its anme means 'moderately spined lizard' in reference to the spines on its vertebrae.
Comparatively little is known about this dinosaur compared to its contemporaries like Allosaurus.


Metriacanthosaurus was originally classified as a species of Megalosaurus from remains found in Oxfort Clay in the UK. In 1964 it was identified as a separate genus.


Oxfort Clay contains a rich variety of remains including marine animals, indicating that Metriacanthosaurus hunted in coastal regions and near waterways.
