DINO-A-DAY #59: Carnotaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!

NAME: Carnotaurus
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Early Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Argentina, 1985
FUN FACT: The “taurus” in Carnotaurus is from the Greek tauros, meaning bull, referring to the bull-like horns at the top of the skull.
