Albertosaurus sarcophagus
Albertosaurus sarcophagus was a genus of carnivorous theropod dinosaurs that lived during the Late Cretaceous period, approximately 70 to 68 million years ago, in what is now North America. It belongs to the Tyrannosauridae family and shared similar characteristics with other tyrannosaurs, such as the famous Tyrannosaurus rex.

This predatory dinosaur stood out for its impressive size. Although smaller than Tyrannosaurus rex, Albertosaurus was still a formidable carnivore, with an estimated length of around 9.5 meters and a weight of about 2.5 tons. It had a robust build, muscular hind legs and relatively small arms, typical of tyrannosaurs.

The head of Albertosaurus was large and powerful, with sharp, backward-curving teeth designed to tear the flesh of its prey. Its eyes were located in a frontal position, which suggests binocular vision that allowed it a three-dimensional perception of the environment, useful for hunting.

It is believed that Albertosaurus was an agile and fast predator, capable of chasing and killing prey such as hadrosaurs and ceratopsians. Its bipedal gait and sharp intelligence gave it advantages in hunting and competition for resources in its ecosystem.

Fossil remains of Albertosaurus have been found in the region of Alberta, Canada, from which its name is derived. Their study has provided valuable information on the ecology and evolution of tyrannosaurs during the Late Cretaceous in North America.

Approximate measurements of the Albertosaurus:
  • Scale 1:35 (Albertosaurus in 2 pieces)
    • Length 260mm
    • Height 91mm
    • Snout-tail length 277 mm
