This large carnivore was the last and most advanced large carnivores in dinosaur evolution. The most striking features were six small horns on top of its snout. Two side by side, and four more in a single row ahead of them. These horns are believed to have helped to distinguish males from females, or mature individuals from immature ones. Only one incomplete Alioramus skeleton has been found. It had a longer head than other tyrannosaurids, and smaller more numerous teeth than its relatives. Its built was small and slender for a tyrannosaurid.
