'Nototyrannus violantei' by Teratophoneus 'Nototyrannus violantei' by Teratophoneus
Probably the first tyrannosauroid, found in South America, this small 4,3 metre long carnivore may prrofes that tyrannosaurids lived in south america too. This means, that tyrannosaurids were present in nearly all parts of the world. However, his name is just informal, as it was shown to the public just a day ago (well a day ago from the moment i uploaded it). Nototyrannus was a very fast animal with long legs and small hands and arms. A skull wasnt found but his two fingered hands show that it was most likely a tyrannsauroid. It lived 92 million years ago In south America. His informal name means southern tyrant. It could also explain why other gigantic theropods like giganotosaurus disappeared just around the time, as the tyrannosaurids arrived in south america. The carcharodontosaurids maybe had to compete with the more highly developed tyrannosaurids and died out after some time. Maybe other tyrannosaurs are foundin the future in south america tha can proof or disprove that theory. Nototyrannus however was rather small for a tyrannosaurid and probably couldnt compete with the giant carcharodontosaurids, but he maybe developed into a bigger animal , remember, south america was the land of giants during the mesozoic, so it maybe had a gigantic tyrannosaurid too, who knows....
However this is the second nototyrannus on DA after HodariNundu´s one. It is also the third reconstruction ever made of nototyrannus.

Yes, someone used it as an example of how "Nototyrannus" was already circulating even though it isn't officially published yet. xD

Breaking news. Nototyrannus may not even be a tyrannosaurid/oid. :P

i know, I heard it in the morning, but as you said, it MAY not been a tyrannosaurid, but maybe it is one, so until it isnt clear, i will make it as one; what else shall i be, a theropod with 2 digits, it must be a tyrannosaur, or it is a completely new family of dinosaurs.

Limusaurus has two fingered hands I think... maybe a large toothless ceratosaur like it?
