This week's dinosaur is a debated genus. The paleo community hasn't decided unanimously whether Nanotyrannus is a juvenile T Rex or another species or another genus. Some clues in the teeth, skull shape, and brain case point toward a different species at least, but the jury is still out on this animal. We're going to build up the evidence this week and we can all decide for ourselves which way we feel it should fall!
