Carnosaurs were large, saurischian, meat-eating dinosaurs that lived during the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. They are theropods.

The carnosaurs used to be divided into five families, the Megalosauridae, Allosauridae, Ceratosauria, and Spinosauridae. Carnosauria is a group that has been eliminated in some classifications, notably that of Thomas Holtz, 1993 - it has been changed in others to include only the allosaurids (liek Allosaurus.
