Guanlong

Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  Superfamily Tyrannosauroidea
  Genus Guanlong
Guanlong was a small Theropod dinosaur. The animal was a carnivore (meat-eater), and lived in China during late Jurassic period, about 160 million years ago. It is (at the time of writing) the earliest known Tyrannosaur - the group of dinosaurs that includes animals such as Albertosaurus, Alioramus, Gorgosaurus, Tarbosaurus, and, of course, Tyrannosaurus rex.

Guanlong was small for a Tyrannosaur. It was only about 10 feet (3 meters) long. It also had a couple of unusual features:
  1. Unlike later Tyrannosaurs, Guanlong had three long fingers on each of its hands.

  2. Guanlong had a large crest on its head, and it is after this feature that the animal is named (in Chinese, its name means "crown dragon").
Aside from its size and the above unusual features, Guanlong had many other features in common with later Tyrannosaurs. One other interesting fact is that it may well have been covered with a coat of primitive feathers - although there is no direct evidence for this, a closely related (but later) Chinese Tyrannosaur, Dilong is known to have definitely had primitive feathers near its jaw and tail.
