jones_supa writes “A previously unknown dinosaur has been identified from fossils dug up in China and has been nicknamed as ‘T-Rex’s cousin.’ The gigantic creature roamed North America and east Asia between about 65 million and 99 million years ago. Named in honour of Zhucheng as Zhuchentyrannus magnus, this animal was about 11 metres long, 4 metres tall and it weighed about 6 tonnes. The research team was led by Dr. David Hone, from University College Dublin school of biology and environmental science.”
