Appalachiosaurus is a Primitive Tyrannosaurid from late Cretaceous Alabama, USA. It is one of the most complete dinosaurs ever found in the American South. Only a juvenile skeleton has been found, representing an animal over 7 meters (23 ft) long and weighing over 600 kilograms (1300 lb), which indicates an adult would have been even larger. This species is notable as the most completely known theropod from the eastern part of North America.
