Toro is a male Carnotaurus and a major antagonist of the animated TV series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, serving as the main antagonist of Season 1, a minor antagonist of Season 2, a mentioned character of Season 3, a cameo antagonist of Season 4, and a major antagonist of Season 5. He also serves as one of the two secondary antagonists of the interactive special Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous: Hidden Adventure (alongside Rexy, depending on the player's choice). He was named by Kenji Kon.

Behavioral characteristics[]

During the events of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, Toro appears extremely aggressive, much like most carnivores bred for Jurassic World, especially after his snout was injured while attempting to devour Darius. Toro was very persistent while hunting, even when climbing stairs that consistently caused him to trip for his targets. He also may back off from more powerful predators as it seemed likely he ran off from the Indominus rex that broke into his habitat or probably he and the Indominus rex understood each other.

Toro exhibited an unwavering determination to hunt down the campers, persistently pursuing them until he was ultimately defeated by their use of explosives, which caused him to injure himself. When Toro first encountered the campers, it is possible that he experienced significant pain upon seeing them. This encounter likely made him realize that the campers, as a collective group, possessed the ability to defend themselves.

However, when Toro spotted Ben, who was alone and separated from the other campers, he considered targeting him for the hunt. Nevertheless, Toro quickly recognized that he was no match for Ben's self-defense abilities and the presence of Bumpy, the Ankylosaurus. This realization led to his downfall as he fell from the cliff.

It is conceivable that once Toro recovers from his physical injuries, he may continue to pursue the campers in his hunt. Without the protection of Bumpy, the campers may face increased risk.

Physical Appearance[]

"Toro. Because of the horns."
Kenji Kon upon escaping from Toro.(src)


Toro is physically identical to most Carnotaurus, being reddish-brown in color 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 was a large scar on the right side of his snout, coming from a failed attempt to catch Darius. By the end of the first season, Toro was covered in severe burns all over his body except his tail, giving him a darker coloration.

Toro had shown to heal some time later as his burns became darker and his distinct facial scar from Darius had healed.

Toro is 2.9 meters tall (9.5 feet) and 2.1 tons.[1]

History[]

Creation[]

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 the public's eye.[2]

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous[]

Season 1[]

Secrets[]

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 him, which caused the animal to trip up, before escaping from the paddock through a feeding cage. While attempting to reach Darius, who was unable to open the cage's opening, Toro scraped his face around the metal of the cage, receiving a large scar across his face.

Things Fall Apart[]

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 him, leaving Toro free to escape and roam the park. Probably, because the Indominus is part Carnotaurus and they both reached an understanding and both had similar things in common.

Last Day of Camp[]

As Toro roamed the park, he unintentionally put himself in the way of Darius and Kenji's group at the Mosasaurus Feeding Show when they tried to reach the park's monorail. At first he did not notice the group, being preoccupied playing with a barrel until Brooklynn, Kenji, and Sammy bumped into each other and gained his attention. He attempted to investigate the disturbance, but 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 by 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, scaring off camp counsellors Dave and Roxie, who had arrived to look for the lost campers.

End of the Line[]

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 in an attempt to get to 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 him, but 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.

Season 2[]

Brave[]

Sometime after the battle, Ben and Bumpy stumbled into Toro's new nest, causing him to territorially chase them until he lost interest. Over a week later, Ben returned to fight Toro in order to face down his fears and drive off the theropod so he could move past the clearing. Armed with a spear, Ben battled with and scratched Toro, only for Toro to throw Ben in the air in retaliation. Before Toro could kill Ben, Bumpy, now a subadult, appeared and attacked Toro, saving her human companion. Working together, Bumpy and Ben finally defeated Toro by forcing him off a cliff. Toro survived the fall.

Later on, if the viewer chooses to escape Hidden Adventure in the vehicle ride, Toro appears to challenge the Tarbosaurus to a fight. Their brawl will lead them inside the Hidden Adventure main area.

Trivia[]

  • Toro's name is Spanish and Italian for "bull" and a reference to both a Carnotaurus' horns resemblance to cattle horns as well as to Carnotaurus, which is Greek for "meat-eating bull".
  • With the Indominus Rex being part Carnotaurus was really easy for her to reason with Toro, as she so splendidly demonstrated when she communicated with the raptors.
  • With the release of Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous, it has become a popular fan theory that the scarred Carnotaurus at the end of Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is indeed Toro, the male Carnotaurus from said series.
    • However, with the release of season 5 of the series, this theory was confirmed to be false, as Toro no longer lived on Isla Nublar but on Mantah Corp Island at the time of the movie. For this reason he was not among the dinosaurs which brought to the Lockwood Manor.
  • Originally, in the storyboard concept for "Happy Birthday, Eddie!" from season 1, Toro was going to appear and have a bigger role in the episode, as being responsible for killing Eddie and chasing the campers through some shipping containers instead of the Indominus rex.[3]
    • Had this been kept in the finalized version, this would marked the first time Toro had successfully killed a human, as well as being the first Carnotaurus in the film canon to do so. However, this would eventually happen in "The Last Stand", in which Toro killed a mercenary after being freed from mind-control.
    • Despite the change in the final version, the dent seen on the van matches Toro's head shape, not the Indominus rex's.
  • "Rude Awakening" is the first time that Toro is seen since the two previous seasons and mention in Season 3. He made a brief appearance in Yaz's nightmare along with a Ceratosaurus and the two deceased hybrids - the Indominus rex and Scorpios rex.
  • As of Season 5, Toro is the first known Carnotaurus to canonically kill a human, as Eli Mills was killed by Rexy the Tyrannosaurus and then the Carnotaurus devouring his remains.
  • Toro was meant to appear in Jurassic World: Dominion in place of the Carnotaurus with the broken horn, however, the executive producer of Camp Cretaceous, Scott Kreamer said that it didn't fit well in the story, and Toro was sadly cut from the film. This was confirmed in an interview with Scott and youtuber, Swrve.[4]
  • This disproves another new recent fan theory that the Carnotaurus in Jurassic World: Dominion was Toro.
  • Had this been kept in however, Toro would be the only character from Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous to appear in a live-action film, as Scott already confirmed that none of the campers were going to make an appearance in Jurassic World: Dominion.
  • Toro was the third male main dinosaur antagonist introduced in the franchise, the first being the Spinosaurus and second being the Indoraptor. Plus, Toro is the only Carnotaurus who has a confirmed gender, with the other two Carnotauruses, their genders are never mentioned.
  • Toro is the second main antagonist dinosaur who didn't die, the first being the Spinosaurus.
  • Despite their bad history with each other, Kenji is shown to have developed a fondness for Toro after mind controlling him, risking his life to help Toro in "The Last Stand" when the dinosaur was getting overwhelmed by Velociraptors.
