Position of Dzharakuduk (marked by red star) on a map of Uzbekistan where the fossilized remains of Timurlengia eutica were discovered. The fossilized remains of a new horse-sized dinosaur, Timurlengia euotica, reveal how Tyrannosaurus rex and its close relatives became top predators, according to a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
