Very little is known about Alioramus; only a partial skull and foot bone have been discovered.
It was long considered by many palaeontologists to be a juvenile Tyrannosaur but the four small bony crests on its snout indicate that Alioramus belongs to a different genus but is closely related to the larger Tarbosaurus.
