New carcharodontosaur from Uzbekistan!3 RepliesAdd A Reply
Meet the Ulughbegsaurus, the newest big baddie to be discovered from 90 million years ago in Uzbekistan!
This find is crucial in understanding how tyrannosaurs became the apex carnivores in their environments as the carcharodontosaurs perished. Ulughbegsaurus was a contemporary of Timurlengia, a specimen that paleontologists point to as proof that tyrannosaurs developed their great senses before becoming larger. Timurlengia and its kin could not achieve their huge size until the carchs like Ulughbegsaurus relinquished their stronghold.

Then summarize it for me
This is an important discovery when thinking about how dinosaurs moved about and spread.
