Zhuchegtyrannus was a genus of little-known tyrannosaurid from Campanian stage of the Late Cretaceous. Living in what is now present-day Zhucheg, Shandong Province of China, Zhuchengtyrannus may have grown to lengths of 11m (36 feet) and a height of 4 meters (13 feet). This is only speculative for the type specimen is known only from a maxillia and a mandible. The mandible, and the estimated overall size of Zhuchengtyrannus only falls short of Tyrannosaurus.
