Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  Family Abelisauridae
  Genus Rugops
Rugops was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived in Niger during the Cretaceous period, about 95 million years ago.

Rugops was bipedal (walked on two legs), and had only short arms. It was about 24 to 30 feet (7 to 9 meters) long, and around 8 feet (2.5 meters) tall at its hips.

Although Rugops was a carnivore, it did have a number of unusual features relating to its head - the bones of its skull had numerous blood vessels, the skull seems to have had armor or scales, and the animal's head may well have been topped by a crest or horns (there are two rows of seven holes in the skull to which the crest or horns may have been attached). These unusual features, led its discoverer, Dr. Paul Sereno, to suggest its head was not designed for fighting or bone-crushing - the obvious suggestion is that it may therefore have been a scavenger.
