|WHERE IT LIVED||
A single fossil was found in Patagonia, Chubut Province, Argentina, South America.
An almost complete fossilized skeleton, together with skin impressions (that reveal rows of bumps on rough skin), has been found.
Carnotaurus was a large, bipedal, meat-eating dinosaur that looked a bit like a bull. It had two, knobby eyebrow-horns (hence its name), a small skull, extremely tiny arms (even smaller than those of T. rex), and a long, thin tail. It may have had partial binocular vision (unlike most other dinosaurs) since the eyes were set facing slightly forwards.
