Toro is a male Carnotaurus and a main antagonist in the first season of the animated TV series, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous and a minor antagonist in the show's second season.

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, and would stop only if it's impossible for him to kill his prey. He also might back off from more powerful predators as it seemed likely he ran off from the Indominus rex since, the massive predator does kill on sight.

Physical Appearance

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, comming 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.

Story

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.

Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous

Season 1

Secrets

A 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 them, causing 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 him 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.

Last Day of Camp

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 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, scarring 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 to 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 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.

Season 2

Brave

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, as 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 throw Ben in the air 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.

Toro does not appear after this, but is mentioned a few times by Ben, after the latter and Bumpy reunite with the other campers.

Season 3

Toro isn't seen, but is mentioned a couple of times by Ben.

After 2015

It is not known what later became of Toro, even if he was alive until 2018, he'd either died during the eruption of Mount Sibo or was brought to the Lockwood Manor with the surviving dinosaurs. But even if the latter were to be the case, it's not known whether Toro was sold during the Lockwood Manor Auction or fled into the wild with the remaining dinosaurs. Ultimately, his fate remains uncertain.

Trivia

  • 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".
  • 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.
  • In an interview with the crew responsible for Camp Cretaceous, it was revealed that Toro was indeed a male. The crew said this was most evident in episode 5 of season 2 when Ben attacked Toro and sliced him close to his reproductive system, hence why he leaped into the air in agony and crashed into the bushes.
  • 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.[1]
    • 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.
    • Despite the change in the final version, the dent seen on the van matches Toro's head shape, not the Indominus rex's.
