Abelisaurus Comahuensis
by: Christian C., Grade: 2


Abelisaurus chased its prey (such as Newquenosaurus, an armor-plated Titanosaur) on long, powerful hind limbs. Abelisaurus had a resemblese to its close cosin Carnotaurus. Unlike Carnotaurus, Abelisaurus had no horns or ornamentation over its deep-set eyes. So how did Abelisaurus atract a mate? Some scientists think that Abelisaurus atracted mates by fighting, and who ever won the fight got the mate. Abelisaurus is one of the rarest dinosaurs ever discovered-because only one incomplete skull has been found of Abelisaurus. Abelisaurus's closest relative is Indosaurus. Abelisaurus and Indosaurus have only one difference, Indosaurus has horns, and Abelisaurus does not. The word Abelisaurus ''Abel's Lizard,'' after Roberto Abel, the person who discovered Abelisaurus.
