Bahariasaurus ingens was a very large primitive Ceratosaur. It was very closely related to Deltadromeus. In fact, some paleontologists speculated both dinosaurs may be the same genus, it is unknown, if Deltadromeus was in fact the juvenile form of Bahariasaurus.

Only a minority of skeletons were found, mostly vertebrae, pelvic vertebrae, rib fragments and basin fragments. But it showed a gracile, long-legged predator with a massively constructed shoulder girdle. It was contemporary of the other large carnivores Carcharodontosaurus and Spinosaurus. The habitat he lived at were near coastal mangroves. İt is probably battle andor co existed with other Very large carnivores like Spinosaurus, Carcharodontosaurus and Suchomimus.
