Abelisaurus was a type of theropod dinosaur that lived in South America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 85 million years ago.

It was a bipedal carnivore that probably reached about 7.4 metres in length, although this is uncertain as it is known from only one partial skull.

Abelisaurus belonged to a group of dinosaurs called abelisaurids, which had short and deep skulls with large openings to reduce weight.

Some abelisaurids, such as Carnotaurus, had horns or crests on their heads, but Abelisaurus did not.

However, it had some wrinkled projections on its skull that may have supported a keratinous crest.

Abelisaurus was named after Roberto Abel, who discovered the fossil skull in Argentina and was the director of the Museum of Cipolletti.

The name means "Abel's lizard".

The only species of Abelisaurus is Abelisaurus comahuensis, which honors the Comahue region of Argentina where the fossil was found.

Abelisaurus is one of the many dinosaurs that have been discovered in Patagonia, a region rich in fossil remains.

It was originally described as coming from the Allen Formation, but later studies showed that it actually came from the older Anacleto Formation.

Abelisaurus may have been a close relative of Aucasaurus, another abelisaurid from the same formation.

Some paleontologists have even suggested that Aucasaurus may be a junior synonym of Abelisaurus, but this has not been widely accepted.

Abelisaurus was a fierce predator that may have hunted large herbivorous dinosaurs, such as titanosaurs and iguanodonts, that shared its environment.

It had relatively small teeth for its size, but a powerful bite force and a strong neck.

It also had short arms with reduced fingers, like other abelisaurids.

Abelisaurus was one of the last representatives of the abelisaurids, a group that dominated the southern continents during the Cretaceous.

After the mass extinction event that wiped out most of the dinosaurs, abelisaurids became extinct and were replaced by other groups of carnivorous animals, such as mammals and birds.
