Alectrosaurus was a theropod dinosaur from Late Cretaceous[87-78 million years ago] Mongolia. It was a tyrannosaurid, and was most likely the dominant predator in the region. Alectrosaurus is thought to have reached around 5 metres in length and weighted nearly a tonne. Alectrosaurus was in two database scenes in Last Killers one with Protoceratops and the other with Tarbosaurus And Alioramus.
An Alectrosaurus was first seen scaring a flock of Oviraptor. One tries to attack a Gigantoraptor pair, but it is outnumbered and so is quickly warded off. Later on in the programme the tyrannosaurid makes another appearance, with a pair of them attempting to attack a nesting Gigantoraptor, however despite causing some injury to the oviraptorid they are defeated and retreat. Their attack does however allow a smaller Oviraptor to try to raid the nest even though the Oviraptor failed. Despite injuring the Gigantoraptor one of the two Alectrosaurus was kicked by the Oviraptorid and probably severely injured.
- The model used for Alectrosaurus are also used for Daspletosaurus.
- Alectrosaurus, despite appearing in The Great Survivors, does not appear in Feathered Dragons.
