Teratophoneus curriei Information:

Teratophoneus curriei is a theropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 76 million years ago. It was a carnivorous dinosaur belonging to the family Tyrannosauridae, which includes some of the most well-known and fearsome predators of the dinosaur world, such as Tyrannosaurus rex.

Teratophoneus curriei was first described in 2011 by paleontologist Thomas Carr and colleagues. The genus name, Teratophoneus, is derived from the Greek words "teras" (meaning "monster") and "phoneus" (meaning "murderer"), reflecting its predatory nature. The species name, curriei, honors the renowned paleontologist Philip J. Currie, who has made significant contributions to our understanding of dinosaur evolution.

Teratophoneus curriei was a medium-sized tyrannosaurid. While it was not as large as its later relative, Tyrannosaurus rex, it still reached lengths of up to 20-25 feet (6-7.5 meters) and likely weighed around 1 ton.

Like other tyrannosaurids, Teratophoneus had a large head with powerful jaws filled with serrated teeth designed for slicing through flesh. It had short, powerful arms with two-fingered hands, and its legs were built for running. Its tail was long and balanced the body, which helped it maintain stability while hunting.

Teratophoneus curriei lived in what is now North America, specifically in what is today Utah, USA. During the Late Cretaceous, this region was part of the western interior of the continent and featured a diverse ecosystem with a variety of dinosaurs.

As a theropod dinosaur, Teratophoneus was a carnivore and likely hunted other dinosaurs and small vertebrates. Its keen sense of smell and binocular vision would have made it an effective predator. It likely lived and hunted in packs, taking down larger prey through cooperative hunting strategies.

Teratophoneus curriei is one of several tyrannosaurid species known from the Late Cretaceous of North America. It provides valuable insights into the diversity of tyrannosaurids during this time period and the evolutionary history of these apex predators.
