Ceratopigouni by XenoTeeth3 Ceratopigouni by XenoTeeth3
30 Day Retrosaur Challenge -Apex predator

A late Cretaceous , South American killer . The Ceratopigouni (meaning ´Horn chin´) was the top predator of his time , when fossils were first discovered scientists  thought that the horn was some kind of  tusk . In reality the horn was on the chin and it was used for stabbing into a helpless prey . Ceratopigouni had also long , sharp claws for holding its victim and a club with spikes on his tail for defense against other theropods . Like with T.rex were the females bigger and more aggressive than the males .

(Based on old T.rex reconstructions and Godzillasaurus)

Aw, man! I think you would have fun with the famous rival entries and the sea and flying tyrants.

Also, question: How does this thing not stab itself in the throat whenever it opens its mouth?

Well thats more the throat pouch , its the same as iguanas have and when the Ceratos horn grows to long its able to make it shorter by scratching it against a rock .
