T.rex was the most ferocious meat eater. He was 50 feet (15 meters)long and 20 feet(6 meters)high. T.rex's teeth were 6 inches(15cm)long, t.rex's arms were not very useful when feeding-they were too short to reach its mouth. For this reason they gave it a name that means tyrant lizard king. Weighted up to 8 tons. His top speed was 15 miles per hour. T.rex was related to allosaurus, tarbosaurus,alberosaurus,dilophosaurus,ceratosaurus.
