The Late Cretaceous top predators of Gondwana were the Abelisauridae. Not as big as the tyrannosaurids, nor were they particularly

Curious, is there any reason to think Abelisaurids were less cursorial than tyranosaurids? /Carnotaurus/ in particular looks pretty long-legged to me. Genuine question, haven't looked into any research.
