Tyrannosaurus Rex

Tye – RAN – o – SORE – us Rex
Names means “tyrant lizard king” because it was one of the largest and most powerful dinosaurs

We can determine from fossils that Tyrannosaurus rex was 15-20 feet tall, about 36 feet long and probably weighed around six tons.

What They Ate
T. Rex was a carnivore (meat eater) consuming other reptilian creatures. With its large head and 60 razor-sharp teeth, it could have eaten up to 500 pounds of food in one bite.

Where Fossils Have Been Found In North America
Colorado, South Dakota, and Wyoming

What They Did
Scavenger or Predator? Scientists debate if T. Rex truly was a feared hunter. Since it had a large head and tail which may have made running and turning quickly to catch prey difficult. However, it had forward facing eyes of modern day predators. It begs the question: if T. Rex wasn’t the main predator of its time—who was?

How They Are Doing
Extinct. Lived in the late Cretaceous Period, 85-65 million years ago
