       Erythrovenator is a genus of theropod dinosaur that lived in South America during the late Triassic.‭ ‬Erythrovenator was established upon the description of a partial femur,‭ ‬specifically the proximal end‭ (‬the part that connects to the hip‭)‬.‭ ‬Because of this any specific details‭ ‬about the lifestyles and features of this dinosaur are at the time of writing hard to establish.
