Does the recently discovered and controversial "Dueling Dinosaurs" fossil provide proof of the validity of  Nanotyrannus as a species vs classification as a juvenile T. rex? Without a doubt according to Robert and his colleagues Dr. Robert Bakker of the Houston Museum of Natural History and Pete Larson of the Black Hills Institute.

Nanotyrannus is the rarest and most enigmatic of the Late Cretaceous tyrannosaurids. Its sleek build, smaller size, and powerful legs made it an exceptionally agile and lethal predator. "Tara" is one of only three of her kind yet discovered, and is  the only fully mounted skeleton of this fascinating dinosaur.
