When Jane was first found paleontologists weren't sure exactly what she was. After in-depth research they discovered she was an adolescent tyrannosaurs rex.
Two small tyrannosaurs like dinosaurs have recently been found in China. These small dinosaurs aren’t Jane’s long lost cousins; they are more like her great great great grand parents.
The discovery proves that the tyrannosaurs evolution started well before the previously thought 130 million years ago.
The Burpee museum will host Paleofest ’06 on Feb. 18 and 19. Once of the key speakers recently published a research paper examining the newly discovered breed of dinosaurs being unearthed in China.
