Tarbosaurus is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that flourished in Asia about 70 million years ago, at the end of the Late Cretaceous Period. Fossils have been recovered in Mongolia, w/more fragmentary remains found further afield in parts of China. Some experts see this species as an Asian representative of the North American genus Tyrannosaurus and like most known tyrannosaurids, Tarbosaurus was a large bipedal predator, weighing up to five tons and equipped w/about 60 large teeth. It had a unique locking mechanism in its lower jaw and the smallest forelimbs relative to body size of all tyrannosaurids, renowned for their disproportionately tiny, two-fingered forelimbs.
