Predatory 'king of gore' dinosaur discovered

A new super-predator dinosaur that roamed the Earth 80 million years ago has been discovered in southern Utah.

It was closely related to its slightly larger relative, Tyrannosaurus rex, but lived earlier, making it the largest living land predator of its time.

Growing to about 30ft (9m) long, the predator has been named Lythronax argestes which means "king of gore".

The research, published in the journal Plos One, highlights once more that the age of discovery is far from over.

I wish I discovered a dinosaur just so that I could give it an awesome-sounding name. Probably something like Throat-punch-guitar-solo-asaurus.

Google translates this to latin as "Cithara gutture ferrum Solonem". Kind of rolls off the tongue ...
