Tyrannosaurus Rex - The Image Of The Most Fearsome In all Types Of Dinosaurs
Tyrannosaurus rex, commonly known as T. rex, is a species of theropod dinosaur that lived during the Late Cretaceous Period, 68 to 66 million years ago.
Their length was up to 12 metres (40 feet) from head to tail, stands 3.66 meters (12 feet) tall at hips and weighed about 7 to 9 tons. Tyrannosaurus Rex had powerful back legs that let it hunt prey over short distances at up to 20mph (32 kph).
T. rex was a huge carnivore and primarily ate herbivorous dinosaurs. Just imagine a hungry, eight-ton Tyrannosaurus Rex taking on a five-ton Triceratops, a not-inconceivable proposition since both of these dinosaurs lived in late Cretaceous North America. Granted, the average T. Rex would have preferred to tackle a sick, juvenile or newly hatched Triceratops, but if it was hungry enough, all bets were off.
