Adult Nanotyrannus by titanlizard Adult Nanotyrannus by titanlizard
This is a hypothetical depiction of an adult Nanotyrannus. Some scientists believe the holotype of the Nanotyrannus was a juvenile T.rex. But their brains aren't similarities between them. I think the holotype was a juvenile Nano, and not a juvenile T.rex. Here the adult is 10 meters long, looks like a Gorgosaurus. Like the T.rex (and any other tyrannosaurid) the male Nanotyrannus has a skin-crest and feathers on his neck.

Actually, the Nanotyrannus found was already an adolescent.

T.rex and others (apart from Guanlong) don't have crests.

The skulls of the T.rexes had small bumps. And the close relative of the t.rex is the chiken.So, perhapsly these bumps confirmed a skin-crest. This is my idea.
Oh... and the Guanlong was a tyrannosauriodae proceratosauridae, not a tyrannosauridae.

Apart from the fact that the Gallus gallus is quite distantly related to the T.rex.


Rather struthioformes.

Thanks!

If its true, why scientists doesn't think that Tyrannosaurs are Maniraptorans too?

Maniraptora is in a totally different league from Tyrannosauroidea.

Maniraptora is much more related to Passeridae.

Yes, i know that. But look at Sue and the other T.rex specimens, they have no skin crests.

If you see a turkey's or a Chicken's or a Condor vulture's skull,you do not think about it that it has a skin-crest
