Epanterias was one of the largest known theropod species on the Jurassic Period. The species lived at North America. Epanterias likely hunted larger prey animals unlike several other theropod species at the Jurassic and was considerably bigger than the Allosaurus, however the epanterias concluded to be; synonymous to forementioned theropod.


Epanterias was a huge theropod; approximately 43 ft (13 meters) long. It was a colossal animal, later researches shows that it is actually synonymous to Allosaurus. Which proves that Allosaurus could potentially have grown up to 13 meters.
