Carnotaurus is a mouth with legs by ScottHartman Carnotaurus is a mouth with legs by ScottHartman
Seriously - I feel like it's a caricature of a real theropod.

Of course all abelisaurs are weird. The lower legs and much of the tail are restored after Aucasaurus, but otherwise it's a remarkably complete specimen.

For those who don't know, this guy was also found with extensive skin impressions. Scales on this one! That included irregular rows of large non-bony scute-like scales down the top and sides of the animal.

Out of Albertosaurus, Daspletosaurus and a parity-sized Carnotaurus, who would win in an arm-wrestling contest? :P

One of the tyrannosaurs, because Carnotaurus couldn't really even flex its elbow or wrist through the necessary arcs.

Too bad, they didn't find any more specimens of Carnotaurus, just a single skeleton, with skin impression on it.

Agreed - it's always frustrating when you can't get ahold of additional specimens (it also makes it impossible to even try to answer questions about whether there is gender-based variation, etc.).

I don't know how your sanity stacks up, but your powers of observation and recognition seem to be fine ;)
