Facts about Dig It Tyrannosaurus Rex:
The name Tyrannosaurus rex means “king of the tyrant lizards”: “tyranno” means tyrant in Greek; “saurus” means lizard in Greek, and “rex” means “king” in Latin. It was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs that ever lived. Everything about this ferocious predator, from its thick, heavy skull to its 4-foot-long (1.2-meter-long) jaw, was designed for maximum bone-crushing action.
Their length was up to 12 meters (40 feet) long and about 4.6 to 6 meters (15 to 20 feet) tall and it had massive 5 foot long (1.5 meter long) skull could bore into prey, but they were too short to reach its mouth. Rex preyed upon Triceratops, and Triceratops probably fought back energetically. T. rex’s serrated, conical teeth were most likely used to pierce and grip flesh, which it then ripped away with its brawny neck muscles. Its two-fingered forearms could probably seize prey, but they were too short to reach its mouth.
T. rex was a member of the Tyrannosauroidea family of huge predatory dinosaurs with small arms and two-fingered hands.
Scientists believe this powerful predator could eat up to 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite.
Tyrannosaurus rex lived in forested river valleys in North America during the late Cretaceous period. It became extinct about 65 million years ago in the Cretaceous-Tertiary mass extinction. More than 50 skeletons of T. rex have been unearthed, according to National Geographic.
