Gorgosaurus is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaur that lived in western North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 76.6 and 75.1 million years ago. It was a large bipedal predator that reached 8 to 9 meters in length and weighed 2.8 to 3.4 tonnes. Gorgosaurus has a proportionally shorter skull than Albertosaurus, Daspletosaurus and other tyrannosaurids. The end of the snout was blunt, and the nasal and parietal bones were fused along the midline of the skull, as in all other members of the family. The eye socket was circular rather than oval or keyhole-shaped as in other tyrannosaurid genera. Gorgosaurus and Albertosaurus are extremely similar, distinguished mainly by subtle differences in the teeth and skull bones.
