Facts

At 7.5 m in length on average it was larger than Ceratosaurus but smaller than T-rex. It was a South American dinosaur. Details of its skull indicate that it had a good sense of smell, but poor eyesight. Its' forelegs were very small - some of the smallest among dinosaurs, some scientists even think they where fully internal, but this point of view isn't widely accepted. Carnotaurus was probably one of the fastest theropods that had ever lived.
