Do your interests lie in learning about ancient animals? If so, then you are in for a treat as we will discuss the gigantic paravian dinosaur called Imperobator antarcticus, the remains of which were found in Antarctica. It was a part of the lower and upper Cretaceous research leading to the discovery of the Imperobator genus. The bones were linked to the Snow Hill Island Formation.
