Carnotaurus Coloring Pages
Carnotaurus sastrei was a carnivorous dinosaur that existed during the Cretaceous period of the Mesozoic Era, until the so-called great Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction.
Carnotaurus sastrei could have used their horns to attack possible prey, and some specialists believe it could have used them to defend itself.
Carnotaurus sastrei was considered a multicellular eukaryotic animal. This was because its cells had a cell nucleus in which the chromosomes were contained. Likewise, it had a wide variety of cells, which fulfilled specific functions.
Carnotaurus sastrei was a dinosaur that could reach up to 4 meters in height and about 8 meters in length and weigh approximately 1 ton. It was characterized by having horn-like structures on its head and extremely short and atrophied upper limbs.
Their head was small compared to the size of the rest of the body. However, it contained the two structures that made it a fearsome dinosaur: its horns and jaw.
As for the horns, there were two of them located on the top of the head. These were bony and were made up of the frontal bone. They could measure up to 15 cm in length.
While, the mouth had a particular articulation that allowed it to open wide, making it capable of taking large bites out of the prey it encountered.
Regarding its geographic distribution, it can be stated that this dinosaur lived in the area of Argentine Patagonia.
Also, it is believed that this dinosaur also inhabited areas that constituted riverbanks, which flowed into a nearby sea.
This habitat was ideal for the coexistence of other dinosaurs, such as titanosaurs and antarctosaurs. In addition to these, there were also ornithopods and some small carnivores.
This allows us to deduce that in this habitat, there was abundant availability of food for Carnotaurus sastrei.
Despite this, some experts claim that this dinosaur was rather solitary. Others, more daring, have even said that Carnotaurus sastrei could have been a scavenger.
However, since no significant number of specimens have been recovered, the behavior it may have had in its habitat remains unknown.
