This Australian dinosaur genus is Walgetoosuchus, although it's thought to be a dubious genus. A single bone specimen of this species was found in 1905 by Tullie Cornthwaite Wollaston in New South Wales. The opalized fossil was then sent to the British Museum of Natural History.
Arthur Smith Woodward was the one to report and describe the specific genus in 1910. However, in 1990, Ralph Molnar classified it as a nomen dubium and an undefined theropod.
The pronunciation is 'Wal-get-toe-sore-us'.
It's assumed to be a theropod dinosaur.
This dinosaur is said to have existed during the Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous era.
It is unknown when exactly it became extinct.
This dinosaur is said to have lived in New South Wales, Australia.
It probably lived in a terrestrial habitat.
It would have lived with fellow dinosaurs and other animals that existed during that time.
We do not know about its lifespan.
They must have reproduced by laying eggs.
As only a single vertebra has been discovered, not much is known about the appearance of this dinosaur. As a presumed small theropod dinosaur, it would have walked using two hind legs.
It is unknown as only a single opalized vertebra has been found to date.
It probably made noises like other dinosaur species.
Its size is unknown because nothing but a single vertebra has been found so far.
The speed of this dinosaur hasn't been described yet.
No information is available about its weight.
Both were regarded as dinosaurs.
A baby would be called a hatchling.
It is not known if they had the tendency to be aggressive.
