The particular remains was found in Tanzania in the 30’s of 20th century. They were examined in 1950s when the scientists were not able to establish the type of the animal they belonged. Later after detailed examinations, the bones were identified to belong to a dinosaur and they were similar to the bones kept in a museum in South Africa.

The size of the animal is supposed to be as the size of a large dog and it is claimed to live on the Pangaea supercontinent which according to experts used to include parts of Africa, South America, Australia and Antarctica.
