Edmarka may have been the largest meat-eating dinosaur during the Jurassic period. This huge predator was a member of the same family as Megalosaurus and would have been the most fearsome of the Jurassic hunters.

Described in 1992 by Dr. Robert Bakker, Edmarka seems to support the theory that single large predators evolve to dominate particular times and places, preventing the rise of other large predators. Dr. Bakker points out that giant predatory dinosaurs would also evolve more bird-like characteristics. Edmarka is known from three individuals, two adults and a juvenile.
