New Tyrannosaurus

Meet Zhuchengtyrannus magnus, illustration courtesy of Robert Nicholls. It's a newly discovered cousin of T. rex, unearthed by a team from University College in Dublin led by Dr David Hone, who named it after the city of Zhucheng, in eastern China's Shandong Province, where it was found. The name means "Tyrant from Zhucheng". And it's big, on a par with T. rex (title link).
