North America, Morrison Formation
Allosaurs were the top predators of the Jurassic, averaging 8.5 – 9.5 metres in length. They would have preyed on the herds of giant sauropods that browsed the Jurassic floodplains. New studies indicate these dinosaurs were pack hunters and would have taken turns at slashing and tearing off chunks of meat from the hides of living animals. Its quite possible that dinosaurs like Diplodocus regularly displayed long wounds in their flanks resulting from this form of predation.
