nanotyrannus, the dawrf tyrant is a quite small genus of tyrannosaurid from north america. Some think it represents juist a juvenile trannosaurus, while othrs think its an own genus. I think its an own genus

Still among the most vicious small theropods to date.

The arms and hands should be larger.

I agree. It's one of the things that point to it being its own genus.

A Nanotyrannus could have been a Mimic Dinosaur of a Juvenile Tyrannosaurus.

back when I said that, in like, 2014, my thought was if there was a "Nanotyrannus", it could mimic young tyrannosaurs and basically be a nest parasite. Though Nanotyrannus has fallen out of favor and currently there is no "Nanotyrannus" to base this assumption on.

I see. But have you ever thought that suc growth pattern does not follow what we see even in distant groups, like birds and mammals?

What about horses? the Foals seem much more lanky than adults.

Show me images please.

Well, it seems I did not know that "lancky" and "slim" had tye same meaning. I was refering to overhaul skull shape and snout lenght.

This is one of those animals I outright refuse to draw; to avoid conflict.

Nanotyrannus seems to very well be its own genus. In Montana, an adult tyrannosaur with features identical to the Cleveland Skull and to Jane, was found alongside an enormous hornless chasmosaurine ceratopsian it killed and was at the same time, killed by. the predator is about as big as Albertosaurus, and is nearly 100% complete. if that specimen is an adult Nanotyrannus, (and i looked at it in detail in the articles about it), i think everyone is going to have to redetermine the size of this animal.

Finally! Someone that thinks!

Authority puppets will cry rivers now.
Saberrex's avatar
Maybe not yet. the specimen is still in private hands, and only the arm has thus far has been examined.
RAGNARMAGEDDON's avatar
But the paleontologist made it clear that it was exactly like nanotyrannus.
Saberrex's avatar
Yes, but until it's published in a legitimate research paper, it doesn't count for much. The find must be published in order to be counted as a legitimate specimen.
RAGNARMAGEDDON's avatar
Well, you just have to take a look at photos of the specimen to see it is almost identical to the Cleveland skull (well, at least the intact bones).
Saberrex's avatar
yes, but the fact remains that it has to be published in a scientific paper after being scrutinized to ensure its authenticity, otherwise, the fossil will be discredited.
RAGNARMAGEDDON's avatar
Well, I heard that the fossil is about to be sent.

Agreed it is its own genus.

Own genus or not, it is still a juvenile tho.

ep, i wonder how big it was as an adult-still probably not bigger than 6 metres i assume....
