Dangerousness: 100%-EXTREMELY DANGEROUS!!!
This colourful carnivore is one of the most dangerous dinosaurs bred by inGen and certainly one of the most interesting animals in jurassic park. when its ND was exstracted inGen had no idea what they would recreate. Out came an unpredicatble killing machine that is not only a very fast runner but also the most stealthy predator in the enitre park. Carnotaurus is the only dinosaur bred by inGen that has the ability to camouflage itself like a chameleon. These animals are almost impossible to control and at first they werent set to be featured on nublar not only because it was dangerous but also because they were rarely seen because they like to camouflage themself. Eventually they were put ina dense jungle area where these swift runners can easily navigate through the trees and desen plant life . They have a muscular but very narow body. While they usually venture into the middle of the jungle during the dark to find a resting spot , carnotaurus hunt near the borders of the jungle, where they lie in wait,perfectly camouflaged and the ambush theri prey in a short sprint. They are acutally able to run at 50 kph for a pretty long time but they seem to prefer ambushing their prey. InGen scientists tried to study thee animals but it was very very dangerous. Only during the colder periods of the year, these animals seemed to be less aggressive. While all dinosaurs on Nublar were thought to be fermale bred, ther was actually one carnotaurus male bred and put into the park. This carnotaurus male was the biggest carnotaurus bred, it was 8,2 metres long and very very aggressive. It tried to escape several times and badly mauled 2 keepers. Because of its size, agressiveness and unpredicatble behaviour this male was named the black devil. Its eyes were said to glow green and the surviving keeper reportedly said that he could see the evil in its eyes. carnotaurus , unlike many other abelisaurs, are sloitary hunters, they sometimes form groups of up to 3 animals but not often, and these groups are very loosely structured. males are bigger and have biger horns.These horns are sometimes used to ram smaller prey. They also are more aggressive than female carnotaurus. The scientist found out that carnotaurus cange colour dependent on their mood (and of course to hide themself) and they are able to change theri complete body colour in around 5 seconds. while they are able to virtually take on any colour they want to, they dont react well to sudden changes of the lighting and then have problems camouflaging themself fast enough.During mating season, male carnotaurus produce pheromone in special gland around theri head to attract a female. during that time, carnotaurus form a pack, which conists of one male and a harem of females. The male will mate with everyone of the females. after that, the pack scatters. young carnotaurus are able to camouflage since birth which they need because their parent dont care for them very long. Carnotaurus have good eyesight and a very well developed sense of smell. They can see in the dark pretty well, although they are daylight hunters. Their urine has a very very strong smell but apart from that the animal doesnt smell which makes it almost impossible for herbivores to notice the animal.Male Carnotaurus eyes are green , while females have yellow eyes. On Isla Nublar , the Carnotaurus got a big paddock that was a little bit different from that of Isla Sorna, with not as much forest but they easily handled that area too due to their camoflage abilities. The Paddock on Islar Nublar is in the mountain area on the island, where it is cooler, so that the females arent as aggressive than in hotter areas. However this hasnt an effect on the males that are as agressive as usual. The Carnotaurus paddock adjoins to the Utahraptor paddock. EvenUtahraptors have respect of Carnotaurus, so they seldom walk along the fence side, where their fence adjoins the one of the Carnotaurus. Carnotaurus roar can be heard from far away and is often compared to that of a lion , just louder and deeper , by Ingen scientists. Because of that, Hammond planned to built a hotel for visitors near to te paddock, to give the visitors the ultimate kick. The planners even found a solution for the camouflage problem: The jeeps that make tours had a heatseeking gadget, with with the visitors could locate the camouflaged Carnotaurus. Although , the scientists said it would be too dangerous to move carnotaurus to isla nublar, and that the 8 Carnotaurus that were breed, should be kept on Isla Sorna for research and not as a attraction, Hammond gave green light to bring 5 Carnotaurus, 2 males and 3 females to the park on Isla Nublar. Hammond himself wanted that 2 of them be males, so the inGen genetics didnt "form" them as females like the other dinosaurs of jp 3, but breed them as normal animals. These two males were the only Jurassic Park dinosaurs that werent asexual. Hammond wante the two male, because he wanted to show his visitors some dinosaur fights. However, one of the males was badly injured during one fight, so Hammond decided to take this one back to Isla Sorna where his wounds would heal. After that, hedecided to keep only one male on Nublar. This big male was the Black Devil. With the destruction of the fences on nublar during the 1993 events and the hurricane, the carnotaurus were set free to roam the island. When it was decided to make nublar into a park again, a hunting party was brough to nublar to capture all the dinosaurs(this was imagined to bemuch cheaper than cloning them all again). During that, all Carnotaurus except one female was caught, which however cost one hunter his life.What happened to the third female remains unknown.Rumours have it that it still wander the island unchecked even tho the park is set to open in june. however these claims have been dismissed by the park managers. The 4 animals , including the black devil, currently reside ona secret island until a new paddock has been made for them as they are going to be included in the park.Recent studies has shown that the population of Carnotaurus on Isla Sorna is stable and that they are one of the top predators there. As the scientific community got wind of the carnotaurus´camouflage abilities they were very sceptic and suggested, that the camouflage abilities had been arose out of a mix between carnotaurus and chamaeleon DNA but inGen documents disproved that theory.
