Description

Carnotaurus was a large predatory dinosaur with horns vaguely resembling a bulls. Carnotaurus lived in Patagonia Argentina during the Maastrichtian stage of the Late Cretaceous and was discovered by José F. Bonaparte who has uncovered many other bizarre South American dinosaurs. Carnotaurus was a medium-sized theropod about 9.0 m (30 ft) in length 3.5 m (10 ft 7 in) tall at the hips and weighing about 1600 kg (1.76 tons). The most distinctive features of Carnotaurus are the two thick horns above the eyes and the extremely reduced forelimbs with four fingers. It had a small skull a thick chest and a thin tail. The eyes of the Carnotaurus faced forward which is unusual in a dinosaur and may indicate binocular vision and depth perception.
