    Tyrannosaurs suggests pygmy species of the carnivorous dinosaurs that included the deadly T Rex has been discovered in the colder climes of Alaska.The fossilised skull of small Tyrannosaurus found in icy northern Alaska has captivated the attention of all scientists.
    70 million-year-old dinosaur skull discovered in northern Alaska
    As per the examinations conducted by the Scientists, the fossilised skull remains thought to be around 70 million years old. The maxilla , jaw and fragments of the skull roof concluded that the specie is less than half the size of the 60in (152.4cm) skull of T Rex. The research team of the project realized that finding a fully-intact skull specimen of this size is extremely unreal.

    Analysis has shown that the T Rex is believed to be humungous of all carnivorous dinosaurs ever to walk the Earth.

    Study co-authors from the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Texas reported that the smaller body size may have shown the species’ partial isolation in the Arctic region and adaption to scarcer resources in the north. ‘The ‘pygmy tyrannosaur’ itself is really cool as it reflects about the biological richness of the ancient polar and environment that was like in the ancient Arctic,’

    Paleontologists upon further inspection, at the University of Calgary identified that the strange, bumpy huge rock was the skull of a large horned dinosaur known as pachyrhinosaurs that roamed parts of present-day Alberta and Alaska.During a routine fossil search , it is found that the biological features measured over six metres in length were most likely used for mating and fighting other animals. The dinosaurs’s head based on the preliminary estimates would have been likely of a older individual with an enormous bony structure over the snout.

    Researchers will be undertaking experiments on the bone to determine its origina as they are not sure whether the new skull is a new species of dinosaur.
