Evgeny/Evgenii Aleksandrovich Maleev [1] (Russian: Евгений Александрович Малеев, pronounced [jɪˈvɡenʲɪj ɐlʲɪˈksandrəvʲɪtɕ mɐˈlʲeɪf]; 25 February 1915 – 12 April 1966) was a Soviet paleontologist who named the armour-plated dinosaur Talarurus, the fearsome 10 metre carnivoreTarbosaurus, and the enigmatic Therizinosaurus. He also named the family Therizinosauridae. Maleev did research on Tarbosaurus brains by cutting open fossilized braincases with a diamond saw.[1] Modern researchers use computer tomography scans and 3D reconstruction software to visualize the interior of dinosaur endocrania, thus eliminating the need to damage valuable specimens.[2] There is a dinosaur named after him called Maleevosaurus. Maleevosaurus: Carnivorous. Length - 17 ft (5.3 m). Location - Asia. Named by Pickering. He named the Therizinosaurus in 1954 and the Tarbosaurus in 1955.There is another dinosaur named after him called Maleevus, named by Tumanova in 1987.
