Torvosaurus was a very large and robust predator, with an estimated maximum body length of 10–11 meters (33–36 ft) and mass of 4–5 metric tons (4.4–5.5 short tons) for the Portuguese species T. gurneyi, making T. gurneyi among the largest land carnivores of the Jurassic.

Torvosaurus was a huge theropod for its time, and probably fed on large sauropods like Diplodocus and Dinheirosaurus and stegosaurs like Stegosaurus and Miragaia. It probably also preyed on the smaller carnivores from time to time as well. It lived in the Late Jurassic Period, and probably lived in swampy, jungle-like areas. It had long, muscular legs and mid-sized arms, good for gripping and holding onto prey. It also had a long, narrow skull, probably used to go in and repeatedly bite at larger herbivores.Torvosaurus grew larger in Europe than in North America, a Torvosaurus in North America would usually grow up to 33 feet long and weigh up to 3 tons. In Portugal a Torvosaurus exceded 36 feet in length and weighed more than 3.5 tons. Unlike most other large theropods, Torvosaurus seemed to have thicker teeth, where others have thin, blade-like teeth, which may suggest it had a stronger bite force than most other theropods its size.
