from Mongolia, Asia, about 70 million years ago. It and T-Rex are so similar some scientists believe they are actually the same genus, but different type species.

Tarbosaurus could reach 12 metres long, and weigh 5 tonnes, making it marginally smaller than T-Rex. It shared its hunting ground with raptors such as Velociraptor, and prey such as Protoceratops and Euoplocephalus, though the first would probably be too small to make a meal for a Tarbosaurus, as well as fellow tyrannosaur Alioramus

Tarbosaurus isn't as famous as its North American cousin, but has Tarbosaurus (Walking with Dinosaurs)

Feathered tarbosaurus

Tarbosaurus also appeared in Chased By Dinosaurs. It was seen hunting Therizinosaurus, but when it attacked, the Therizinosaurus clawed it on the side of the head, and it retreated to avoid further injury.
