Named for the horns above its eyes, this small-armed, snub-nosed predator is unusual in many ways. Horn-like projections on the skull inspired paleontologist Jose Bonaparte to give this carnivorous theropod its distinctive name. Carnotaurus had a distinctive short, deep snout. Its eyes were positioned in the skull so that both could focus on the same field of vision, meaning it had depth perception and could see in three dimensions the way humans do. The forelimbs of Carnotaurus were stubby with short lower arm bones. An almost complete fossilized skeleton, together with skin impressions (that reveal rows of bumps on rough skin), has been found.
