The species lived during the Cretaceous Period, roughly 10 million years before the Tyrannosaurus rex ruled the land.

The skeleton of the Gorgosaurus was uncovered in Montana by the Judith River Formation in 2018, the report noted. It measures 10 feet tall and 22 feet long.

The skeleton is the only one available for private ownership, the report noted.
