Gorgosaurus libratus by ScottHartman Gorgosaurus libratus by ScottHartman
Another one of my old 2004 era skeletals gets the 2012 update treatment. Gorgosaurus is a fairly gracile tyrannosaurid, but this was restored after sub-adult specimen TMP 91.36.500, which is even more gracile than adult specimens.

Is it okay if I use your skeletal as reference for a drawing?

Oh, and where it's appropriate I appreciate it when people can credit me for the anatomical basis :)

Yup, go ahead. If you get some major commercial job and want to base it on my work then drop me a line, but otherwise please have at!

Gorgosaurus libratus was certainly faster and more agile than potential competitor Daspletosaurus sp, although i know adult G. libratus would be a bit slower than sub-adults like TMP 91.36.500. It would be more effective at hunting fast moving dinosaurs. However i wouldn't say D. sp was primarily scavenger, because it wouldn't survive eating mostly dead bodies. Some people say Gorgosaurus hunted ceratopsians like Chasmosaurus, but wouldn't Daspletosaurus be better built for hunting this kind of prey? Also another question. Is there possible that Daspletosaurus could be fast enouth to hunt large hadrosaurs? Look at its feet and Brachylophosaurus's. [link]

You are right that this subadult specimen is longer-legged than larger adult specimens. Daspletosaurus would have been fast enough to catch hadrosaurs - their overall limb proportions are easily more cursorial than other large herbivorous dinosaurs in their environment.

And finally, there simply is no such thing as terrestrial carnivores that scavenge exclusively for a living.

Almost looks disproportionate. I guess puberty is awkward for dinosaurs too.
