T. Rex
Tyrant Lizard


T. Rex was a huge meat-eating dinosaur that lived during the Cretaceous era, which is about 65-85 million years ago. The
T. Rex lived in humid places like North America and Central Asia.
They breathed through their brains. T. Rex’s jaws were up to 4 feet long, with hard teeth that were from very small to over 9 inches long. As teeth were broken, new ones grew to replace them. Tyrannosaurus Rex was a good predator that walked on two powerful legs.
These meat eaters had amazing teeth and jaw muscles. They had tiny arms, with two fingers on each arm. Each foot had three toes, all with claws. Also there was a little tiny fourth toe that did not touch the ground. They had small arms with two fingers. T. Rex had a tail that gave them balance on quick turns while running. Their bodies were solidly with hollow bones.
Tyrannosaurus Rex was 40 feet long and about 15 to 20 feet tall. The arms were only about 1 yard long. Tyrannosaurus Rex weighed about 10 tons. The T. Rex was a big dinosaur and nothing what a human is like. This is the best dinosaur to walk on the earth!
