Really has nothing to do with tyrannosaurs. Everyone just knows who they are so they use them as a reference point.
The Thai dinosaur has yet another recently discovered cousin who is French. The later can be identified by his stylish beret.
(I’m being silly purely because the ScienceDaily headline caught my attention by assigning nationality to a fossil—and thereby an animal which lived many millions of years ago. It brought to mind various potential Far Side types of cartoon parodies where the Thai dinosaur can be identified by his love of stir fried noodles.)
Hoping they find a Korean dinosaur since I love kimchi.
