‘Reaper of Death,’ Newfound Cousin of T. rex, Discovered in Canada

The Tyrannosaurus Rex has long been the creature of nightmares — but the “King of Tyrant Lizards” had a cousin who may have been just as terrifying. With the help of a paleontology enthusiast, scientists in Canada said they discovered the newest member of the Tyrannosaurus family and named it after the Greek God of Death.   In the museum’s press statement, De Groot said the discovery of the fossil skull fragments, including the jawbone, was “an absolutely stunning find.”

“We knew it was special because you could clearly see the fossilized teeth,” he said.  “Thanatotheristes can be distinguished from all other tyrannosaurs by numerous characteristics of the skull,” Voris said. “But the most prominent are vertical ridges that run the length of the upper jaw.”

A rendering of the dinosaur shows large teeth for eating meat. Scientists believe the animal was a bi-pedal predator, similar to the T. Rex.
