Lenght: 8 meters
Weight: 4 tons
Cousin of the famous Tyrannosaurus Rex. It ranged 70 milions years ago. Observation records show that Albertosaurus usually hunt in packs hunting often for ceratopsians and hadrosaurus dinosaurs. Obviousivly they hunt on open areas where they can do a frontal attack to separate young, old or sick animals. Albertosaurus is a lightly build carnivore in medium size. IT's bones are hollow so it can easily chase prey for a long distance. Some say that bite of Albertosaurus is venomous due the bacteries in it's mouth. That would explain why group of Albertosaurs takes on animals like Mamenchisaurus and be succsessful in those hunts. Another interesting thing is that they have some kind a resistance for tranqulizer darts as well as Metricanthosaurus. Isla Sorna has 2 groups of Albertosaurus in the western part of the island. They are very common there. Albertosaurus can be found in coniferous woods close to mountatins. They like colder air. One of the rangers reported that saw one specimen on the top of the mountain close to powerplant and the heliport. Albertosaurus are also common in areas where raptors (type: antirrhopus nublarensis) are present.
TRIVIA: Albertosaurus is one of the last clonned dinosaurs by IN-GEN. Albertosaurus have a great sense of smell so they usually follow injured dinosaurs and they easily recognize weak animals. That would explain that few people of the In-Gen personel durning the evacuation from the island got hurt and didn't maked to rescuing boats or choppers. They ewentually got eaten by those carnivores. Smell of blood works on them like on sharks. They can smell blood from many miles. This is a typical feature for scavengers. However that dosen't disturb Albertosaurus from active hunting.
