Gorgosaurus - 2011 Project 365 - Day 100 of 365


Day 100 of 365

Today we went for a day trip to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta.

Originally called the Albertosaurus, this dinosaur was renamed the Gorgosaurus in 2003.

Smaller than its cousin Tyrannosaurus, Gorgosaurus was still eight metres of fearsome carnivore. It had tiny forelimbs, but powerful jaws and strong hind legs that ended in claws.
