Daspletosaurus

About Daspletosaurus

This ferocious hunter lived in the marshes and swamps of the late Cretaceous Period about 75 million years ago. Even though Daspletosaurus was a little smaller than the much more famous T-Rex, it was no less of a hunter. Daspletosaurus' large teeth, some of the largest among any dinosaur, suggest that it was able to tackle and kill very large and powerful prey. Daspletosaurus may have been an ancestor of T-Rex, though the fossil evidence is unclear.
