Dryptosaurus, the tearing lizard, infamously known as laelaps, is a genus of Tyrannosauroid. Dryptosaurus is one of the first described tyrannosaurs and lived in North ameica. Its hand carried a huge thumb claw and it has been suggested that it might used that claw to attack ankylosaurs by hammering this claw between the armoured and unarmoured part of the body. Don t know if its true, but I read it somewhere. Dryptosaurus was around 7-8 metres long, a quite big tyrannosauroid.

You did Deinodon wich is a likely synonym of Albertosaurus and/or Gorgosaurus so why not. O and AWESOME drawing of the first Tyrannosaurid described in the Americas.

Good specie! You will make Diplotomodon? Another east side tyrannosauroid

dont know, I personally think Diplotomodo´n is just a synonym of gorgosaurus, but maybe I will do one.
