Carnotaurus was a theropod dinosaur with incredibly short forelimbs. It had four fingers, and the arm length was shorter than Tyrannosaurus rex. It had short horns on it head, and a short snout. Its back and neck were covered with spike-like scutes, which is very uncommon in theropod dinosaurs. Only one nearly complete skeleton of Carnotaurus was ever discovered in South America. Compared to its small forelimbs, its hind limbs looked long and strange. Its tail was average in length to other theropods, and it used it for balance while running.
