Our first abelisauroid! Unfortunately, not much is known about it. Laevisuchus was from the late Cretaceous period, around 70 million years ago in the Maastrichtian stage. it was found in the Lameta Formation in India, just showing that dinosaurs really did colonize every place on earth. It is only known from some vertebrae, however that is enough to know that it was a small, bipedal carnivore, probably about two meters long. It also can be classified as an abelisauroid, possibly a noasaurid, thanks to those vertebrae. It’ll be interesting to see if more remains of this animal show up.
