New shark-toothed dinosaur as big and ferocious as a T-Rex discovered by scientists

A DINOSAUR as big and ferocious as a T-Rex has been found by scientists.

It was the size of a bus, weighed more than a ton and had 6in ­serrated, blade-like teeth.

The apex predator belonged to the Carcharodontosaurus group, or “shark-toothed dinosaurs”.

It roamed central Asia around 90million years ago — long before the T-Rex’s reign of terror.

Its remains were entombed in rocks at a dino graveyard in Uzbekistan’s Kyzylkum Desert.

Face and head bites were identified, likely inflicted in inter-species territorial battles.

Dubbed “Ulughbegsaurus”, its hunting ground spanned hundreds of miles and included smaller tyrannosaurs.

Dr Kohei Tanaka, of Nagoya University, Japan, said: “It closely resembled Neovenator which was discovered in the UK.”
