Researchers at the University of Calgary and Royal Tyrrell Museum say they’ve identified the first new Canadian tyrannosaur species in 50 years.
Tyrannosaurs were large meat-eating dinosaurs that walked on two legs and had short arms, massive skulls and sharp teeth.
Jared Voris was examining fossil fragments from a drawer at the museum in Drumheller, Alberta when he noticed there was something odd about them.
He says they had vertical ridges along the upper jaw bone — something not found in other tyrannosaur species.
