ClassificationEditIt was a carnataurin abelisaur, a group of specialised, cheetah-like ceratosaurs that lived inot the cretaceous.
The type skeleton is complete to the thirteenth caudal vertebra, and so is relatively well understood, and is the most complete abelisaurid yet described. However, the skull is damaged, causing some paleontologists to speculate that it was involved in a fight shortly prior to death.
