Acrocanthosaurus was a large theropod dinosaur which lived during the Aptian and early Albian stages of the Cretaceous period. Like most dinosaur genera, Acrocanthosaurus contains only one species; A. atokensis.
In Real Life
Acrocanthosaurus was around 11.5 meters in length, and weighed around 6.2 tonnes (6.8 tons). Acrocanthosaurus was likely the apex predator of its habitat, preying on animals such as Tenontosaurus and juvenile Sauropoesidon.
Acrocanthosaurus' arms were not very mobile, suggesting that the head was the animal's primary weapon. Acrocanthosaurus likely wasn't particularly fast, based on the proportions of the animal's rear legs.
In The Isle
Acrocanthosaurus is the strongest carnivores beside the apexs.Acrocanthosaurus is part of the Bleeder Branch, a branch of carnivores the specialize in massive bleed. While alone, you must only hunt small to medium sized prey that have very few defences but when in a pack, you can hunt prey that are dangerous like Triceratops, Stegosaurus, and, if the pack is large enough, Shantungosaurus.It should hide away from bigger Predators like Tyrannosaurus,Giganotosaurus and Spinosaurus.
- High bleed
- Can take down medium-sized prey on its own
- Faster than most dinosaurs, quick trot
- Strongest carnivore other than the apexes
- Intimidating size
- Can break bones (low chance)
- Large size means it can be seen easily
- Cannot sneak very well
- Low stamina
- Somewhat weaker than it appears

Behind The Scenes
Carcharodontosaurus and Giganotosaurus were originally going to be alternate skins for the Acrocanthosaurus. Ultimately, however, Giganotosaurus instead became it's own thing, with Carcharodontosaurus being an alternate skin for it instead.
