Abelisaurus

Dinosaur Names

Dinosaur:  Abelisaurus

Pronunciation:  ah-BEEL-ee-SAWR-us

Translation:  Abel's lizard

Location:  Argentina

Era:  Cretaceous Period, 80 million years ago

Fossils Found:  near complete Skull

Length:  up to 27 feet

Diet:  Meat Eater



The one known fossil skull of Abelisaurus is incomplete, especially on the right side. It is also missing most of the palate (roof of the mouth). Despite the missing pieces, it is over 33 inches (85 centimeters) long. Although there are no bony crests or horns, like those found in some other abelisaurids, such as Carnotaurus, rough ridges on the snout and above the eyes might have supported some kind of crest made out of keratin, which wouldn't have become fossilized. There are also very large fenestrae (window-like openings) in the skull, which are found in many dinosaurs and reduce skull weight
