Eoabelisaurus is a genus of large theropod dinosaur from the Middle Jurassic period of what is now South America. It was a bipedal carnivore that probably reached 6.5 metres (21 ft) in length.

The discovery, which is fairly recent, is important because of its relative completeness. It is the earliest known member of the family Abelisauridae.
