Daspletosaurus modernus (name meaning "modern frightful lizard") is a species of tyrannosaurid dinosaur that originally lived in western North America between about 77 and 74 million years ago, during the Late Cretaceous Period, and was once extinct, but has since been brought back from extinction by SciiFii. Daspletosaurus modernus is closely related to the much larger tyrannosaurid Tyrannosaurus rex, and, like most tyrannosaurids, Daspletosaurus modernus is a multi-tonne bipedal predator equipped with dozens of large, sharp teeth. Daspletosaurus modernus has the small, yet strong forelimbs typical of tyrannosaurids, although they were proportionately longer than in other genera. As an apex predator, the original ancestor of Daspletosaurus modernus was at the top of the food chain in its timeline, preying on large dinosaurs like the ceratopsid Centrosaurus and the hadrosaur Hypacrosaurus. Daspletosaurus modernus was originally planned to be included in Cretaceous Park, but zoos have commisioned for Daspletosaurus modernus to be in the zoos worldwide, and ever since zoos now have Daspletosaurus modernus almost everywhere.
