Abelisaurids are meat-eaters that have small, short-snouted skulls armed with small pointed teeth.

Some abelisaurids have cone-shaped horns projecting from their skulls. Their snout bones have a wrinkled texture-a criss-cross pattern of grooves for blood vessels-suggesting that in life their snouts had a horny, or bill-like, covering, rather than scales. Small head size (relative to their body) and small teeth suggest that they may have been scavengers.
