Caption: Fossil of a carnivorous dinosaur. Computer- coloured image of fossilised head and neck of a Tarbosaurus bataar. This species inhabited Central Asia in the late Campanian age, about 75 million years ago. It was very similar to the closely- related genus Tyrannosaurus, and was a predatorial carnivore. Remains of up to 30 individuals, including 5 skulls, have been found. The genus was first described by Maleev in 1955, based on finds from late Cretaceous sandstones in Mongolia and China.
