Nanotyrannus lancensis by Teratophoneus Nanotyrannus lancensis by Teratophoneus
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

The arms and hands should be larger.

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.

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.

Maybe not yet. the specimen is still in private hands, and only the arm has thus far has been examined.

But the paleontologist made it clear that it was exactly like nanotyrannus.

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.

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).

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.

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....

Eriorguez Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2012
Seeing it usually falls as sister to Tyrannosaurus rex, and the sole somewhat solid element that would point to being different is some details closer to Tarbosaurus, I'd think the adult would be over 10 meters. It has proportions akin to pre-growth spur Tyrannosaurids, so it will get a lot larger.

But then we would have 2 superpredators in the same area. And both are tyrannosaurines. Its not the same thing with daspletosaurus and gorgosaurus which filled diferent ecological niches because daspletosaurus is a trannosaurine and gorgosaurus an albertosaurine. I think thre would be much competition betwenn a t rex and a fully grown nanotyrannus if it really reached 10 metres or more.

Unless the niche differentiation WAS indeed that way (Daspletosaurus-Gorgosaurus). Or maybe Nanotyrannus had a different habitat, with N. lancensis being rarer and T. rex being commoner-I mean, T. rex's range extends from the North Horn Formation, into Hell Creek, Lance and Scollard Formations (range from Utah, New Mexico, Montana, South Dakota, to Canada) while Nano is only from Hell Creek (I checked Wikipedia details) and the Lance and Hell Creek are also different from each other in habitat types.

Ever wondered why there are so many proponents of Nanotyrannus being a juvenile Tyrannosaurus, then?

Just asking, has Phil Currie now believes that Nanotyrannus is a juvenile T. rex like Wikipedia stated?:?

Ageed. I think it is it' own genus. It's skull is differen compared to a juvenile T-Rex. That's accoding to what DinosaurGeorge said.
