081--FUKUIRAPTOR KITADANIENSIS by Green-Mamba 081--FUKUIRAPTOR KITADANIENSIS by Green-Mamba
project: DINOSAURIA
specimen 081

FUKUIRAPTOR KITADANIENSIS
"Kitadani Formation Thief from Fukui"
Azuma & Currie, 2000
Length: 5m (16.4ft)
Weight: 350 kg (771 lbs.)
Location: Fukui Prefecture, Japan
Era: Barremian age, lower Cretaceous (128 million years ago)

Classification:
Dinosauria
Saurischia
Theropoda
Tetanurae
Avetheropoda
Carnosauria
Carcharodontosauria
Neovenatoridae
Megaraptora

Notes:
The original discovery was very sparse--for this reason, it was originally thought to be a type of dromaeosaurid, mistaking its large, curved hand claw for the distinctive raptor toe claw. This seems to be a common mistake among other Neovenatorids as well--Fukuiraptor's close relative, Megaraptor, had the same problem.
