Alectrosaurus olsenis is a genus of relatively small (5 metre long) tyrannosaurid. It belongs to the albertosaurine tribe of the tyrannosauridae and is the smallest albertosaurine . It lived in asia and lived together with the bigger tyrannosaurs alioramus and Tarbosaurus.
And yes , it was THAT small !
Still it was probably a verocius carnivore, not as big as the other tyrannosaurs it shared its environment with but much more agile and faster.
Note: I am not very satisfied with this version so I will probably will make a new one.
Note 2 : after all tyrannosaur sare finished, I will make a chart with all of them

Nextone: Yutyrannus

I'm fairly certain the known material of this animal isn't enough to conclusively place it within Tyrannosauridae, let alone Albertosaurinae. Personally, I'd clarify that it's position within Albertosaurinae is a speculative assumption.

I thought this was bigger. Watching Planet Dinosaur makes me think Gigantoraptor wasnt very tall. And what about horns? If you restoration is correct, the alectrosaurus in Planet Dinosaur is an albertosaurus.

well it seems that it was very small, and if you look carefully, you will see that my one has horns too. a complete skull was never found,only some skull elements, so we arent sure if it had horns. :)
