During the events of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, Toro appears extremely aggressive, much like most carnivores bred for Jurassic World, especially after his snout is injured while trying to eat Darius. Toro is very persistent while hunting, and would stop only if it's impossible for him to kill his prey. He also might back off from powerful predators as it seemed likely he ran off from the Indominus rex since this massive predator does kill on sight.
Toro is physically almost identical to most Carnotaurus, being reddish-brown with black patterns and having a build common of his species, except with a stunted horn on the right side of his head. Toro's most distinguishing feature is a large scar on the right side of his snout from a failed attempt to catch Darius. By the end of the first season, Toro is covered in severe burns everywhere except his tail, giving him a darker coloration.
Toro had shown to heal some time later as his burns became darker, His wound on the snout from Darius had healed.
Toro was one of the many dinosaurs cloned by InGen and Masrani Global for exhibition in Jurassic World on Isla Nublar. However, at some point in his life, Toro became overly aggressive and had to be moved to a separate enclosure away from guests.
The day after the campers arrived at Camp Cretaceous, Toro stumbled upon and attacked Darius Bowman and Kenji Kon when they broke into his pen. The pair managed to buy themselves time by using Toro's inability to make sharp turns against his, causing the animal to trip up, before escaping from the paddock through a feeding cage. While attempting to reach Darius, Toro scraped his face on the metal of the cage, receiving the scar across his face.
A few days later, the recently escaped Indominus rex arrived at Toro's paddock. After engaging in a brief confrontation with the Carnotaurus, the Indominus broke through the fence of Toro's paddock. However, the Indominus left without harming the Carnotaurus, leaving Toro free to escape and roam the park.
Toro later encountered Darius and Kenji's group at the Mosasaurus Feeding Show. He originally did not notice them and was playing with a barrel until Brooklynn, Kenji, and Sammy bumped into each other. However, he was quickly distracted by Darius throwing a rock. Once he lost interest in the rock, Toro began sniffing the group out as they were climbing the stairs to the park's monorail, eventually becoming alerted to their presence when the monorail's automated greeting played. He attacked them, but kept tripping on the stairs, which eventually broke beneath his weight and sent the animal plummeting to the ground, allowing the kids to escape. Toro soon recovered from his fall and returned to the Jurassic World Lagoon, scarring off camp counsellors Dave and Roxie, who had arrived to look for the lost campers.
Later that night, Toro managed to find his way into the park's tunnel system, where he once again encountered and attacked Darius' group, eventually losing them in some vents. He found them again after Darius and Yasmina Fadoula attempted to break open a vent cover, breaking through one behind them to in an attempt to get at Brooklynn, although the group eventually managed to escape once they succeeded at breaking the cover in front of them. Toro quickly relocated them, however, and resumed his attack. Although he destroyed a trap set for his at first, he was lured into another one using compressed air tanks and a taser to light an explosion, heavily scarring and burning Toro in the process. Once he had recovered enough to stand, Toro glared down at Darius before limping away in defeat exposing his multiple scars and burn marks.
Toro had made a nest on a hill after he lost the battle against Darius' group. Ben and Bumpy later stumbled into his lair, which made Toro angry, and he chased them off a cliff. Later on, Ben came to fight Toro in order to face down his fears and drive off the theropod. Armed with a spear, Ben battled with and scratched Toro, only for Toro to bite Ben on his shoulder in retaliation. Before Toro could kill Ben, Bumpy appeared and hit Toro with her tail, saving her human companion. Working together, Bumpy and Ben finally defeated Toro when he fell off a cliff during the melee. While Toro wasn't killed by the fall, the Carnotaurus was gravely injured.
Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
Toro first appears as part of the "Primal Attack" toy-line for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, then as part of the "Snap Squad" and mini figure assortments that serves as tie-ins for Camp Cretaceous. Toro is set to be part of the "Super Colossal" assortment for the 2021 line.
- Toro's name is Spanish for "bull" and a reference to both a Carnotaur's horns resemblance to cattle horns as well as to Carnotaurus, which is Greek for "meat-eating bull".
