T-Rex Had a Little Bro

    SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA - AUGUST 28:  In this handout provided by Destination New South Wales, a Tyrannosaurus rex takes a morning stroll with commuters in Martin Place on August 28, 2013 in Sydney, Australia. In a world first, the Australian Museum presents "Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family", an innovative, multimedia experience showcasing the newly-revised tyrannosaur family tree. With over 10 life-sized dinosaur specimens on display, including one of the oldest tyrannosaurs, Guanlong wucaii, the exhibition runs from 23 November 2013 to 27 July 2014. Showcasing a dramatic array of fossils and casts of tyrannosaur specimens, including neverbefore-seen specimens from China, "Tyrannosaurs: Meet the Family" is designed to provide a snapshot of dinosaur life and show how this group became the world's top predators with their massive skulls, powerful jaws and bone-crunching teeth.

    A team of paleontologists from the Perot Museum in Dallas has discovered a new species of tyrannosaur found in northern Alaska. The new dinosaur is related to the famous tyrannosaurus rex, and has been named Nanuqsaurus hoglundi. It lived roughly 70 million years ago during the Late Cretaceous period. While the remains found were roughly half the size of a t-rex, that still put the creature at the terrifying dimensions of two meters tall and seven meters from nose to tail and weighed 1,000 pounds.
