Tyrannosaurs – Meet the Family at Te Papa from 27 September 2014

If you thought you knew tyrannosaurs, think again. Tyrannosaurs – Meet the Family provides a snapshot of dinosaur life and explores how tyrannosaurs became the world’s top predators with their massive skulls, powerful jaws, and bone-crunching teeth. While the most-famous member of this family was the mighty T. rex, tyrannosaurs came in all shapes and sizes including Guanlong, the ‘crown dragon’, and the tiny Dilong, the ‘emperor dragon’ with a skeleton just one metre long.
