Carnotaurus Skull. In Cretaceous Argentina, Carnotaurus fiercely guarded his place at the top of the food chain. The species displayed several bizarre features, most prominent of which was a pair of bull-like horns above the creature's eyes.
Carnotaurs were related to a primitive group of theropods called Abelisaurids. This relationship probably puts Carnotaurus closer to Allosaurus than to Tyrannosaurus rex, though it doesn't appear that any of these three lived at the same time. Perhaps there was only room for one giant predator at a time during the Cretaceous Period.
Similar in proportion to Tyrannosaurus, Carnotaurs were smaller in length—perhaps only twenty-five feet or so. Of course, at over five times the size of an African Lion this meat-eating monster would still have been quite a formidable predator.
PaleoClones' Carnotaurus scale model skulls are cast in museum-quality resin and prepared to match the texture and details in the original skull unearthed in Argentina.
