Terataphoneus curriei sub-adult
Discovered by Dr. Joe Sertich of the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, this sub-adult specimen of Terataphoneus gives researchers a rare look into the life of a young Tyrannosaur. When considered next to the adult of this species, our specimen provides the opportunity for comparison of various developmental stages in this group of dinosaurs. Despite being smaller, and slightly more gracile, this specimen lives up to it's name (from the greek for Monsterous murderer). Perhaps the only thing more frightening in a museum gallery than a giant Tyrannosaurus rex would be it's close relative who's size allows it to look you in the eye and manuver quickly.
