An allosaurus (pronounced: /ælloʊˈsɑːrʌs/ æl-lo-SAR-us[5] Loudspeaker listen) was a large carnivorous dinosaur,[1] commonly found in the jungles of Chult.[4]


Allosaurs were large, fast and powerful hunters possessing sharp claws.[1]


An allosaurus could easily run down prey on open ground. Once it caught a creature it would use its claws to pounce it and pin it down.[1]


One of the colleges of the Tabaxi city of Mezro was known to ask explorers to hunt and capture a live allosaurus in exchange for jungle training or teaching the Tabaxi language.[6]
