CARNOTAURUS
“Flesh-eating bull”
Late Cretaceous, 72-69.9 million years ago           

This unique meat-eater was built for speed, and had two pointed brow horns above its small, forward-facing eyes. While many therapods are now thought to have had feathers, skin casts discovered in southern Argentina revealed that Carnotaurus had tough, reptilian skin. Its metaphorical skin, however, was quite thin, and its childhood was very lonely.
