Paleontological information and information about living vertebrate predators are combined to enhance speculation about the feeding ecology of carnosaurs. Like young crocodilians and monitor lizards, juvenile carnosaurs were probably catholic in diet, consuming large invertebrates, small vertebrates and carrion. Adult diets varied at different times and places, and these differences probably affected theropod foraging behavior. Carnosaurs may have hunted gigantic species of herbivorous dinosaurs in loosely integrated packs.
