Gnathovorax was an herrerasaurid dinosaur, and like other genera of its kind, would have been a bipedal predator, meaning it walked on 2 legs, and a precursor of the main land predator type throughout the remainder of the Mesozoic. Gnathovorax was a very exciting find, not just because it was another early predatory dinosaur, but because of the high level of preservation.
