I think they first found this dinosaur, the Majungasaurus, in Madagascar. And then they had to move it.

Majungasaurus is a genus of abelisaurid dinosaur that originated from Late Cretaceous Africa. A powerful predatory dinosaur, Majungasaurus is unlocked by progressing through the Entertainment Division on Isla Sorna, and can subsequently be obtained for $220,000 in the Research Center.

HistoryEdit

Although InGen was not known to have cloned any specimens of Majungasaurus for exhibition in Jurassic World on Isla Nublar, by 2012, the company had possession of the carnivore's genetic material, which was used in part to create the genetically modified superpredator known as the Indominus rex.[1]

STEPPE

Majungasaurus has a deep, blunt head with a bony lump at the top of its cranium. It also has a line of spines down on its back and bony osteoderms across its body. Its' base genome is mainly light brown all over the body with dark brown stripes all over the body with white osteoderms.

Behaviour Edit

Majungasaurus can live alone or in pairs. They are dangerous animals, yet are also one of the more easy to keep carnivorous dinosaurs.

Paleontology Edit

Majungasaurus is an Abelisaurid related to Carnotaurus. It is found exclusively in Madagascar.

The Abelisauroidea superfamily evolved from primitive carnivores such as Ceratosaurus from the Jurassic. They lived in continents and countries isolated from Laurasia; North America, Asia and Europe. They could be found in India, South America, Africa, Madagascar, and Australia. Majungasaurus so far has been the largest carnivore from Madagascar's Maevarano formation and was the top predator of its time.

It lived alongside the sauropod Rapetosaurus, which was its main prey, as well as smaller carnivores such Rahonavis and Masiakasaurus. Masiakasaurus belongs to the Noasauridae family, which are closely related to Abelisaurids, but occupied a niche for smaller more specialised hunters. There is also evidence for cannibalism in Majungasaurus, with bones showing tooth marks from Majungasaurus bites.
