Middle Jurassic 170–168 mya
Condorraptor (meaning 'robber from Cerro Condor') is a genus of Megalosaurid theropod dinosaur. From the Middle Jurassic of Argentina, it was one of the earliest large South American theropods. The animal was about 4.5 metres long and it weighed about 200 kg. It is very similar to another theropod from the same formation called Piatnitzkysaurus.
