Abelisaurus

Dinosaurs were a world wide phenomena. The Abelisaurus was found in what is now Argentina, South America. This Cretaceous period dinosaur is a bit of a mystery as only one skull has been found which is badly damaged on the right side. A lot can be determined from this single skull though, combined with location and era. This carnivore had large holes in its skull called fenestrae above the jaw. It is likely these were present to lighten the weight of the head or to work as a sound amplifier or olfactory sensors.

We have TWO videos regarding this dinosaur. The first from I’m a Dinosaur.

And the second another How to Draw by 123Peppy.
