Recovered in the Prince Creek formation north of Alaska, the fossilized skeletal remains of a dinosaur suggest that they belonged to a new species of the family of the Tyrannosaurus rex.

The partial extracts of the palate, the maxillae and the mandible have been compared with those of other species of tyrannosaurids and the result seems to indicate that this new species, the Nanuqsaurus hoglundiIt is closely related to the ferocious T. rex.

However, the new cousin of the rex does not share the impressive dimensions of its relative: it is a smaller species, barely over half a meter long (little compared to the 1.5 to 2 meters of the rex), and also a carnivore. Its presence has been tracked in the mid-latitudes of Asia and North America, so it lived in a very extreme continental environment in some seasons.

The researchers believe that it could be an adaptation of the tyrannosaurid family to the freezing climates of the north, hence the reduction in size compared to species at lower latitudes. If true, the Nanuqsaurus hoglundiwould help study the suitability of these animals to arctic climates.

Romantic, in the artistic sense of the word. In my adolescence both family and friends reminded me over and over that I was an inveterate humanist, as I spent time doing what perhaps others not so much, believing myself to be Bécquer, immersed in my own artistic fantasies, in books and movies, constantly wanting to travel and explore the world, admired for my historical past and for the wonderful productions of the human being. That is why I decided to study History and combine it with Art History, because it seemed to me the most appropriate way to carry out the skills and passions that characterize me: reading, writing, traveling, researching, knowing, making known, educating. Disclosure is another of my motivations, because I understand that there is no word that has real value if it is not because it has been transmitted effectively. And with this, I am determined that everything I do in my life has an educational purpose.
