Comments on T?. megagracilis



My second examination of t
he type megagracilis in LA convinced me that it is extremely similar to T.
rex, including the distinctive, stout teeth. It very probably is a juvenile.
If so, it suggests large T rex juveniles (males?) were very gracile until
almost fully grown.

Alternately megagracilis is a distinct species. If so, it is probably a
species of Tyrannosaurus, the specimen is too poorly preserved to be sure.
Rather like the leopard is in the same genus as the lions and tigers it lives
among.
