“An Scorpiovenator has just been successfully incubated. And for now, let’s hope it isn’t too hungry. Because we are out of scorpions.”
– Claire Dearing
Skorpiovenator is an extinct genus of abelisaurid theropod that lived during the Late Cretaceous in what is now Argentina. It is one of the most complete and informative abelisaur fossils yet known, described from a nearly complete and articulated skeleton.
Based on the available fossil remains, scientists estimate that Skorpiovenator was about 6 to 7 meters (19.7 to 23 feet) long and weighed around 1,000 to 1,200 kilograms (2,200 to 2,600 pounds). It was a medium-sized abelisaurid dinosaur.
Skorpiovenator had a typical abelisaurid body structure. It had short, robust arms with two-fingered hands and powerful hind limbs. Its skull was broad and robust, with a mouth full of sharp, serrated teeth. The presence of bony bumps and ridges on its skull suggests that it may have possessed some form of ornamentation.
As a carnivorous dinosaur, Skorpiovenator was likely an apex predator. Its strong jaws and sharp teeth indicate that it was adapted for slicing and tearing flesh. It would have hunted other dinosaurs or smaller animals for sustenance.
