The Tyrant Lizard King (T-rex)
by: Chris B., Grade: 4


The T-rex other wise known as the tyrant lizard king lived in the late cretaceous period. There were 3 periods: The jurrasic, the triasic, and the cretaceous periods.These were all in the mezozoic era which means age of the reptiles. The Tyranosaurous rex stood over 16 feet tall and 30 feet wide. It was about 3 stories high.
The T-rex had teeth that were 4 inches long, and used only them to eat. It did this because its front legs are too small to use to carry things. The Tyrant lizard king was biped over meaning that its back was hunched over. I think that if its front legs were bigger, it would walk on 4 legs instead of 2. The t-rex was one of the fiersest reptiles of them all.
