Qianzhousaurus sinensis Information:Qianzhousaurus sinensis is a theropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 70-66 million years ago. It belongs to the family Tyrannosauridae, which includes some of the most iconic and well-known carnivorous dinosaurs, such as Tyrannosaurus rex.
Qianzhousaurus sinensis was first described in 2014 by a team of Chinese paleontologists. The genus name, "Qianzhousaurus," is derived from Qianzhou, the old name for the city of Ganzhou in Jiangxi Province, China, where the fossils were found. The species name, "sinensis," refers to China.
Qianzhousaurus was a relatively small tyrannosaurid, estimated to have been about 9 to 10 feet (2.7 to 3 meters) in length. It had a slender build compared to the larger and more robust Tyrannosaurus rex. Its skull was long and shallow, and its teeth were serrated, indicating a carnivorous diet.
One of the most distinctive features of Qianzhousaurus was its elongated and shallow skull, which earned it the nickname "Pinocchio rex." The elongated snout and numerous teeth in its jaws suggest that it may have had a specialized diet compared to its close relatives.
While the exact diet of Qianzhousaurus is still a subject of study and debate, its long snout and teeth suggest that it may have been adapted for a different feeding niche than its larger tyrannosaurid relatives. It likely preyed on smaller animals, such as small dinosaurs and other vertebrates.
Qianzhousaurus sinensis lived in what is now eastern Asia, specifically in the region of modern-day China. During the Late Cretaceous, this area was characterized by a variety of environments, including forests, rivers, and swamps.
Qianzhousaurus is classified within the Tyrannosauridae family, which includes some of the last and largest predatory dinosaurs to exist before the mass extinction event that wiped out the non-avian dinosaurs at the end of the Cretaceous period.
