Carnotaurus Figure by Papo
Mess with the Carnotaurus, and you’ll get the horns…
This giant would be a rival for even the ferocious Tyrannosaurus Rex in size. A distinctive meat eater, the Carnotaurus commonly fed on smaller animals rather than the big guys, and it is believed that rival creatures of the same species would ram their bull-like horns into one another while fighting much the same way our current horned-animals do.
Either way, this figure gives no innocent impressions of what the dinosaur would do if it were alive today, as opposed to 69 million years ago. With stunning detail, this Carnotaurus figure will be an excellent addition to your dinosaur toy collection–just don’t wave any red sheets in front of it…
