The scientific name Carnotaurus sastrei means ‘Meat Eating Bull’, a name which is derived from its distinctive horns. Carnotaurus lived in the late Cretaceous period in South America about 72 to 69 million years ago. The animal was estimated to be about 30 feet long, 12 feet tall, and weighed about a ton. Carnotaurus was unique among carnivorous dinosaurs in that it possessed thick horns above the eyes, a trait that no other carnivore shared.

According to the Jurassic World website, the DNA of Indominus Rex is composed of several large theropod dinosaur, one of which is Carnotaurus.
