Majungasaurus was an Abelisauridae, related to Rugops from Niger and Carnotaurus from the La Colonia formation of Argentina. Known from the Madagascan Maevarano formation, it lived along famous and iconic animals like Beelzebufo, Masiakasaurus and Rapetosaurus.
The Maevarano formation, located in the north-west Madagascar, is a late Cretaceous (most likely Maastrichtian) formation where a diverse ecosystem has been preserved. Among the fossils found here are frogs, turtles, early birds, fishes, a wide variety of dinosaurs and much more. The most famous animals known from this location are Mahajangasuchus, a very large crocodylimorph, the modest sized titanosaur Rapetosaurus and Majungasaurus, the most likely apex predator in this ecosystem.
