DINO-A-DAY #32: Tarbosaurus

Welcome to Dino-a-Day, where we'll be highlighting one prehistoric beast per day until the release of our graphic novel Evolution: The Story of Life on Earth on January 4, 2011.

Each of the ninety-six creatures we'll be featuring on this blog are taken from a huge 2-page spread in the middle of Evolution. So while you can see each individual creature here, you'll need to grab the book to see them all together!



NAME: Tarbosaurus
PRONUNCIATION: TAR-bow-SOR-us
ORDER: Saurischia
EXISTED DURING: Late Cretaceous
DISCOVERED: Mongolia, 1946
FUN FACT: Due to sideways-facing eyes and enlarged olfactory bulbs, Tarbosaurus is believed to have relied more on sense of smell than sense of sight.
