Daspletosaur was a genus of tryrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived in western North America between 77 and 74 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous Period.


Daspletosaurus is closely related to the much larger and more recent Tyrannosaurs. Like most known tyrannosaurids, it was a multi-tonne bipedal predator equipped with dozens of large, sharp teeth. Daspletosaurus had the small forelimbs typical of tyrannosaurids, although they were proportionately longer than in other genera.




It got its name because of its apparent ferociousness; its name means "frightful lizard."


As an apex predator, Daspletosaurus was at the top of the food chain, probably preying on large dinosaurs like the Triceratops family of Ceratopsids ,the Centrosaurs and the Hadrosaurs and the duckbilled dinosaur, the Hypacrosaurs.
