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.

I never knew it had such a long neck and tiny head. You always see it restored wrong I guess with a really big head.

I think some illustrations may be influenced by the villain in Disney's Dinosaur.

Do you know where can I find good photos of the skin impressions? I have Bonaparte et al. (1990) but I can't really make out what I'm seeing in figure 37 haha

btw Juares-Valieri et al. (2010) and Novas et al. (2013) suggested that the femur would have been shorter than the 103cm it was originally reconstructed, if it was indeed shorter, will that affect the legs of your skeletal?

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.).
