Who is Lu Xiong the Zhuchengtyrannus?

Lu Xiong the Zhuchengtyrannus was a lucky hunter. It was born with a strong physique, extremely sharp teeth and claws. It had undaunted courage, firm belief, and strong will. All of this made it stand out in a group of hunters and became the king.
Lu Xiong the Zhuchengtyrannus lived in the Late Cretaceous. The place it used to live is now known as Zhucheng City, Shandong Province, China. People first knew Lu Xiong because its fossils were buried there. That land was among the places with the most dinosaur fossils. In addition to Lu Xiong the Zhuchengtyrannus, people have also found many dinosaurs from various species here. The most common was a group of herbivorous dinosaurs, the hadrosaurs, and there were also ankylosaurs, ceratopsians, and sauropods. The great variety proved that Lu Xiong’s hometown was a paradise for dinosaurs.
