Daspletosaurus, meaning “frightful lizard” is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that resided in western North America between 77 and 74 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous Period. Fossils of the only named species were found in Alberta, although other possible species from Alberta and Montana wait for description. Daspletosaurus is closely related to the much larger and more current Tyrannosaurus. Like most of the known tyrannosaurids, it was a multi-ton bipedal...

Tarbosaurus, meaning “alarming lizard” is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that thrived in Asia about 70 million years ago, at the end of the Late Cretaceous Period. Fossils have been uncovered in Mongolia, with more incomplete remains found further afield in parts of China. Many species have been named, although, modern paleontologists recognize only one, T. bataar, as legitimate. Like most tyrannosaurus, Tarbosaurus was a sizeable bipedal predator, weighing up to six...

The type species, X. baimoensis, was described in 2009 by a group of researchers from China and the USA. The species name, baimoensis, means "white ghost", after "white ghost castle", a rock formation near where the fossil was found. Xiongguanlong was a medium-sized tyrannosauroid. It...
