However, used the name Dryptosaurus incrassatus instead of Laelaps incrassatus when he described the remains in detail in 1903 and 1904, a combination first coined by in 1902. Like with Tyrannosaurus, the maxillary cheek teeth of Albertosaurus were adapted in general form to resist lateral forces exerted by a struggling prey. Due to a lack of specialised equipment the almost complete skull could only be partially secured. A species distinction was maintained because of the age difference. Also, redundancy within an article should be kept to a minimum excepting the , which is meant to be a summary of the entire article, and so is intentionally duplicative.
Wide openings in the skull reduced the weight of the head while also providing space for attachment and. Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. You should read the source, understand it, and then express what it says in your own words. The comparison with modern animals and other tyrannosaurids lends support to this life history hypothesis, but bias in the fossil record may still play a large role, especially since more than two-thirds of all Albertosaurus specimens are known from one locality. They found that only one of the 319 Albertosaurus foot bones checked for stress fractures actually had them and none of the four hand bones did.
The saltwater has been found in marine sediments in the Horseshoe Canyon, while freshwater environments were populated by , , and like and. Most authors have followed Currie's recommendation, but some have not. The two skulls were assigned to the preexisting species Laelaps incrassatus by in 1892, although the name Laelaps was by a genus of and had been changed to in 1877 by. If your complaint relates to the sale or promotion of counterfeit goods, please file a. In ; ; Osmólska, Halszka eds. These two species are the only described albertosaurines; other undescribed species may exist. A trademark is a word, symbol or combination that identifies the source of a product and distinguishes it from other products.
In 1889, Tyrrell's colleague found an incomplete smaller skull associated with some skeletal material at a location nearby. Very large animals were rare because few individuals survived long enough to attain such sizes. Like most of the other fossils from the formation, Albertosaurus remains are found in deposits laid down in the and of large rivers during the later half of Horseshoe Canyon times. Lawrence Lambe named this dinosaur libratus in 1914. . Even poor articles, if they can be improved, are welcome.
If you see a problem that you can fix, do so. Currie claims this as evidence of pack behaviour. Special care needs to be taken with biographies of living people, especially when it comes to handling unsourced or poorly sourced claims about the subject. Kyoryugaku Saizensen Dino Frontline in Japanese. However, tyrannosaurid forelimbs were extremely small for their body size and retained only two digits.
Canadian Journal of Earth Sciences. The discovery of 26 individuals at one site provides evidence of behaviour and allows studies of and , which are impossible with lesser-known dinosaurs. This resulted in a dramatic decrease in their mortality rate and a corresponding rarity of fossil remains. Further excavation from 1997 to 2005 turned up the remains of 13 more individuals of various ages, including a diminutive two-year-old and a very old individual estimated at over 10 metres 33 feet in length. Typically for a theropod, Albertosaurus was bipedal and balanced the heavy head and with a long tail. The specimen also contains some on the fourth left metatarsal.
However, only rarely are so many dinosaurian predators found at the same site. One patch is found with some gastralic ribs and the impression of a long, unknown bone, indicating that the patch is from the belly. The tends to guide articles through ever-higher over time. The leg proportions of the smaller individuals were comparable to those of , which were probably among the fastest dinosaurs.

Intermingled with the Albertosaurus remains of the Dry Island bonebed, the bones of the small theropod were found. As a tyrannosaurid, Albertosaurus was a with tiny, two-fingered hands and a massive head that had dozens of large, sharp teeth. If you think an article needs to be rewritten or changed substantially, , but it is best to about why you made the changes on the article's talk page. At least for the younger individuals, a high running speed is plausible. Size comparison Albertosaurus was smaller than some other tyrannosaurids, such as and Tyrannosaurus. Several independent mass estimates, obtained by different methods, suggest that an adult Albertosaurus weighed between 1.
Dinosaur Systematics: Approaches and Perspectives. The 10 metres 33 feet specimen from the same quarry is the oldest and largest known, at 28 years of age. In ; Padian, Kevin eds. When you edit an article, the more radical or controversial the change, the greater the need to explain it. These younger units of this date to the early stage of the Period, 70 to 68 million years ago. The former species is today seen as a juvenile form of Gorgosaurus libratus, the latter as either identical to or representing a separate genus.
