Megaraptora is a clade (not a family) consisting of deinonychosaur-like predators. They lived during the Cretaceous, with the last genera dying out during the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. The placement of Megaraptorans is uncertain, with some placing them as carnosaurs, and others more recently placing them as members of Tyrannosauroidea or basal members of Coelurosauria.
