Its skeleton was dug up in a Chinese construction site and identified by scientists at Edinburgh University, UK. The 66-million-year-old predator, officially named Qianzhousaurus sinensis, is described in Nature Communications. “Pinocchio” looked very different to other tyrannosaurs, the journal said.

 

“It had the familiar toothy grin of T. rex, but its snout was long and slender, with a row of horns on top,” Edinburgh’s Dr Steve Brusatte was quoted as saying by the BBC.
