“An Albertosaurus has just been successfully incubated. That’s great work on your part. And for now, let’s hope it isn’t too hungry.”
– Claire Dearing
Albertosaurus was a tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived in Dinosaur Provincial Park between 73 and 70 million years ago in the Late Cretaceous period. It could attain a length of 9 to 10 meters (30–33 feet) and a height of 3-3.6 meters (10–12 feet). It weighed about 3–4.4 tons. At one time, Albertosaurus was thought to be the same as Gorgosaurus, another tyrannosaurid, but now they are considered two separate species. Albertosaurus was The Lion of the Cretaceous as it had a big number of plant eaters to feed on, especially ceratopsians like Styracosaurus or Pachyrhinosaurus, or hadrosaurs like Parasaurolophus or Corythosaurus. There is also fossil evidence that this large, ferocious predator may have hunted in packs to bring down too large, difficult prey like Edmontosaurus. Albertosaurus also had a more slender skull and bones than other tyrannosaurs, making it a slim yet graceful deadly predator.
