Is a genus of tyrannosaurid theropod dinosaurs that lived in western North America during the Late Cretaceous Period, about 70 million years ago. The type species, A. sarcophagus, was apparently restricted in range to the modern-day Canadian province of Alberta, after which the genus is named, although an indeterminate species (“cf. Albertosaurus sp.”) has been discovered in the Corral de Enmedio and Packard Formations in Mexico. Scientists disagree on the content of the genus, with some recognizing Gorgosaurus libratus as a second species. As a tyrannosaurid, Albertosaurus was a bipedal predator with tiny, two-fingered hands and a massive head that had dozens of large, sharp teeth. It may have been at the top of the food chain in its local ecosystem. While Albertosaurus was large for a theropod, it was much smaller than its larger and more famous relative Tyrannosaurus rex, growing 9 to 10 m (30 to 33 ft) and possibly weighing 2.5 tonnes (2.8 short tons) or less. Since the first discovery in 1884, fossils of more than 30 individuals have been recovered, providing scientists with a more detailed knowledge of Albertosaurus anatomy than is available for most other tyrannosaurids. The discovery of 26 individuals at one site provides evidence of pack behaviour and allows studies of ontogeny and population biology, which are impossible with lesser-known dinosaurs.

Not my tail!
Today, it’s dad’s turn to watch over the playful Albertosaurus chicks that think biting his tail was a good hunting practice.
Some digitally-colored pencil sketches I did in the past week.
The Halszkaraptor’s colors are taken straight from a Spotted Shag (a species of cormorant) and the Albertosaurus is based on pieces by the artist @Toarcian on Twitter.
Dinovember day 5 and 6
7 to come today or tomorrow.
Well this mon is based on one of my favorite dinosaurs, and to give it something special I gave it something similar to a regional form
This inspire in how the albertosaur is found all way up to canada and alaska to the so south like Mexico, so i made a North version been ice and electric and fire and electric if its from the south
Albertosaurus sarcophagus. Yes, again. The last one sucked.
my bertie and his herrera kids! flat version under the cut!!
Albertavenator is not interested in Albertosaurus booming.
Albertosaurus sarcophagus, a tyrannosaur from Late Cretaceous Canada.
This one seems to have been built more for speed than for power, being more gracile than the later, robust tyrannosaurs like T. rex and Daspletosaurus. Some argue that Gorgosaurus is merely a second species of Albertosaurus, I’m not sure I agree but I’ll let time make that call.
This one’s definitely a runner-up for my favourite tyrannosaur. I’ve always preferred lithe, fast builds over stocky, muscular ones. Idk why, they just… they do it for me. I definitely think Prehistoric Park warmed me up to this animal, and it certainly prevented me from envisioning it as anything other than a warm, sandy yellow.
Yayy Its done!:>> Feathered Albertosaurus boi.
Wip , for comission >Feathered Albertosurus ^^
Took a little break from dinos , and now im back ^^ Here is a training sketches for alberto^^
Its dino time! This is the first of 3 dinosaur designs that I’m planing to do, I hope ya’ll like them
me @ the albertosaurus from new world: have no fear, for i shall save you
Dinocember day 7: Albertosaurus
Who knew breakfast would just walk out in front of you?
