Skeletal reconstruction shows the preserved bones found by the scientists.

The new tyrannosauroid is relatively small (about 1.5 metres5 feetlong) and rather primitive in many details of its skeleton. But its skull has the distinctively square-snouted profile of its much larger and more famous 70-to-65-million-year-old cousin, T. rex.

This research was supported in part by the National Geographic Society's Committee for Research and Exploration.
