Guanlong wucaii is genus of tyrannosaurid dinosaur that inhabited the jurassic forests of china 160 million years ago.
Behaviour And DescriptionEditAt 3 metres long it was a small to medium sized carnivore. The crest on guanlongs head was probably for display either to attract a mate or to scare of enemies. Unlike most tyrannosaurids guanlong had three fingered hands whilst most later tyrannosaurids had just 2 fingers per hand. Gunalong was discovered in 2006 and is only known by 2 specimens. As it is only known by two specimins little is known about this primitive tyrannosaurid.
