Crested killer

The oldest relative of Tyranosaurus rex has been discovered in Jurassic strata in China. Check out this CBC page which has not only a pretty good description of the critter, but a nice artist's rendering.

They're wrong about it sharing the trait of being three-fingered with T. rex, though. T. rexes were famously two-fingered.
