Rugops is a abelisaurid ceratosaur from the Cenomanian stage of the Late Cretaceous. It contains only one species, R.primus.
In Real Life
Rugops lived in the Echkar Formation, alongside Carcharodontosaurus, Kaprosuchus and Laganosuchus. It is poorly known, with only a skull definitively known from the genus. It was probably a predator of small-to-mid sized animals, and likely scavenged the remains of larger predators, as well.
In The Isle
Rugops will replace the Majungasaurus as a lower-tier abelisaur.
