Tarbosaurus was about 30 to 40 feet (9 to 12 meters) long and weighed 4 to 5 tons.
Tarbosaurus is closely related to Tyrannosaurus Rex, and there is some debate among scientists about exactly how close, and about exactly how Tarbosaurus should be classified. The creature was first described by Evegeny Maleev in 1955 using fossils recovered in a Soviet Mongolian expedition of 1948. The name Tarbosaurus means "terror lizard".
Tarbosaurus was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived from 68 to 65 million years ago
