Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs that ever lived. Everything about this ferocious predator, from its thick, heavy skull to its 4 foot long (1.2 meter long) jaw, was designed for maximum bone-crushing action.
T.rex has been found in the Hell Creek Formation, a layer of rock that has supplied the skeletons of many famous dinosaurs, including Triceratops, Edmontosaurus, Ankylosaurus, and Pachycephalosaurus.
This specimen is almost 40 feet long and would have weighed 10,355 pounds when alive. Scientists believe a T.rex could eat up to 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite! T. rex prey, including Triceratops and Edmontosaurus, have been found in coprolites (poop) from T.rex. This suggests that T. rex crushed and broke bones as it ate big mouthfuls of its prey.
This specimen is a 40 foot adult T.rex. This T. rex, found in 2007, had the most complete tail of any T. rex found to date, with only three vertebrae missing.
