A small fossil of one of the last dinosaurs living in Africa has been discovered.

The dinosaur is commonly known as the Abelisaurus but its full name is Chenanisaurus barbaricus!

Abelisaurus was the top predator in Africa, South America, India and Europe all the way up to its extinction.

The amazing fossil was found in a mine in northern Morocco and it’s over 66 million years old!.

The small fossil was sent to Dr Nick Longrich who teaches at Bath University. With the help of scientists around the world, Dr Longrich identified it as an Abelisaur.

Abelisaurus looks a little bit like a Tyrannosaurus Rex, which dominated North America but it is smaller and has much shorter arms.
