The new Tyrannosaur, named Alioramus altai, was found during an American Museum of Natural History 2001 expedition to the Gobi Desert of Mongolia. Never heard of this one

HORNS! Weird, though, how the picture in the article doesn't show any horns. Because I want to see this prehistoric madman's horns.
