Torvosaurus gurneyi (Hendrickx & Mateus, 2014)
Length: 10 m
The largest carnivore to ever walk on European soil, she remained synonymous with her North American sister Torvosaurus tanneri until a new analysis in 2014 discovered enough oral differences between them to warrant her own separate species, in this case named after the writer and illustrator of Dinotopia, James Gurney.
