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.
