The species tyrannosaurus rex (aka “king of the tyrant lizards”), is one of the most well-represented of the large dinosaurs. Tyrannosaurus was a bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long, heavy tail. Fossil evidence shows that the T-Rex was about 40-feet long and up to 20-feet high! This tyrant lizard was on the largest carnivores that ever lived.
To date, about 20 almost-complete t-rex skeletons have been discovered, the most notable of which was “Sue”, the super skeleton (over 90% complete) that was sold to the Chicago Field Museum for $8 million dollars.
And by the way, that Tyrannosaurus chase scene in Jurassic Park, the one where the dinosaur chases the car travelling 45 miles per hour. Yeah, that couldn’t happen. T-rex was massive and scientists calculate that about 86% of its muscle mass would have to be concentrated in the legs to reach those speeds. Instead, it is believed the Tyrannosaurus Rex ran at a measly 12 miles per hour.
