About Acrocanthosaurus
A large and formidable killer, Acrocanthosaurus stood around 20 feet (6m) tall. With large, sharp, dagger-shaped teeth and sickle-shaped claws designed for ripping apart an enemy, Acrocanthosaurus would have had little difficulty attacking and killing any sized victim.

Acrocanthosaurus' arms were slightly longer than most other tyrannosaurus (large meat-eating dinosaur).
Acrocanthosaurus had a unique flap of skin, like a mini-sail, running along its back. Most scientists believe that this was used to control the temperature of its body. Acrocanthosaurus was cold-blooded. Cold-blooded animals cannot regulate their own temperature. When the outside temperature is cold, the animal's body becomes cooler and its movements become slower. A sail would have allowed the animal to gather the heat from sunlight, and pass it on to its body through blood.
