Re: T-Rex and "friends"



If you've got a copy of the Dinosauria handy (either edition will do), the 
dinosaur distribution chapter will have detailed lists of dinosaurs. "Hell 
Creek Life: Fossil Flora and Fauna" (http://www.scn.org/~bh162/index.html) by 
Philip Bigelow will give a more synoptic view of the Hell Creek Formation cast. 
 

In general, the dinosaur cast is led by Edmontosaurus and Triceratops, guest 
starring Ankylosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Thescelosaurus, and Torosaurus, with 
a variety of dromaeosaurids/troodontids/ornithomimids/oviraptorosaurians for 
color.

Incidentally, in the back of Glut's "The New Dinosaur Dictionary" (1982), there 
is a mention that "Dale A. Russell and Robert A. Long will describe some new 
Upper Cretaceous dinosaurs based upon elements from the Hell Creek beds of 
Montana, including a new species of large ornithomimid, a new genus or genera 
of dromaeosaurid, a new type of ceratopsian and a new saurischian larger than 
Tyrannosaurus" (p. 284).  Did anything ever come of these? -Justin

Who lived around Tyrannosaurus Rex? Is there any
fossil record of other large meat eaters in Rex Times?
A best place to find this info?
Thank you.
