A new species of giant, feathered dinosaur discovered in northeastern China is the largest known feathered animal –- living or extinct -- ever to have existed, scientists reported on Wednesday.
According to new research, the Tyrannosaurus Rex, which has traditionally been seen as a lone wolf kind of dinosaur, hunted in packs.
A new study from an international team of scientists suggests juvenile and adult predatory dinosaurs had a range of hunting and feeding strategies.
A gigantic theropod dinosaur measuring 11 meters long (36 feet), four meters tall (13 feet) and weighing in at six tons has been discovered in eastern China.
Scientists have unveiled fossils of one of the earliest dinosaurs ever discovered -- a petite, nimble carnivore from the late Triassic period some 230 million years ago.
Tyrannosaurs are more than large carnivores at the top of the food chain.
Scientists have uncovered a hip bone believed to belong to an ancestor of the Tyrannosaurus Rex in Australia, providing the first evidence that the fearsome carnivore may have lived in the southern hemisphere.
Scientists have uncovered new clues about the early stages of the Tyrannosaurus rexâ€™s beginnings.
Carnivorous but smaller T. rex relative shared environment with larger cousins.
A new T Rex ancestor found in China meaures only 10 feet tall and 150 pounds - aptly nicknamed â€œRaptorex.â€
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...
Tyrannosaurus, meaning “tyrant lizard,” was a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Late Cretaceous Period (68 to 65 million years ago). It was among the last non-avian dinosaurs to exist prior to the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event. Perhaps the most famous Tyrannosaurus species, T. rex, was named in 1905 by Henry Fairfield Osborn, president of the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). Teeth belonging to Tyrannosaurus were first discovered in 1874 by A. Lakes near Golden...
Xiongguanlong, named after the city of Jiayuguan in northwestern China, is a genus of tyrannosauroid dinosaur from the Aptian to Albian ages of the Early Cretaceous Period (100 to 125 million years ago). 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...
Labocania, meaning "red lips"(named for the La Bocana Roja Formation), is a genus of theropod dinosaur from the Campanian age of the Late Cretaceous Period (70 million years ago). It lived in what is now Baja California, Mexico. The type species, L. anomala, was described in 1974 by Ralph Molnar. Labocania is known only from fragmentary remains, and its physical characteristics are not well known. There is some speculation that it may be closely similar to tyrannosaurid dinosaurs, but...
