Deltadromeus was a mid-sized theropod that lived in North Africa.

Skeletons of Deltadromeus revealed that it had extraordinarily long and slender hind limbs for a theropod, suggesting it was a very fast runner. As no skull material has ever been found, reconstrctions of its head is purely guesswork.
