Aucasaurus, a very recent discovery, was a medium-sized
meat-eater that seems to have been similar to Carnotaurus. It was
smaller than Carnotaurus, which means that it may have hunted
different types of prey than its larger relative. This discovery was
exciting because many of the bones were found, along with skin
impressions. Also, the fossil was found with its skull broken from
what appears to have been a fight to the death.
As of this writing, Aucasaurus has not yet been formally described.
It is considered the most complete abelisaur yet found.
