Scientific Classification
  Kingdom Animalia
  Phylum Chordata
  Class Sauropsida
  Superorder Dinosauria
  Order Saurischia
  Suborder Theropoda
  (unranked) Coelurosauria
  Superfamily Tyrannosauroidea
  Family Tyrannosauridae

  Genus Gorgosaurus
Gorgosaurus was a carnivore (meat-eater) that lived in North America during the late Cretaceous period, about 76 to 68 million years ago. It is very similar to its close relative, Albertosaurus.

Gorgosaurus was about 30 feet (9 meters) long, 9 feet (2.7 meters) tall, and probably weighed about 2.5 tons.

The name Gorgosaurus means "Gorgon lizard". The word Gorgon refers to Greek myth: the Gorgons were three sisters with snakes for hair, who turned people who looked at them to stone.

Gorgosaurus was first described by Lawrence Lambe in 1914.
