Tyrannosaurus was a large tyrannosaur that lived during the late Cretaceous period


Tyrannosaurus lived in what is now North America. It was one of the largest tyrannosaurs ever known to walk on this planet.


Tyrannosaurus was 36 feet long and with teeth the size of steak knives, it was a very dangerous predator. Although huge, these giants had useless arms that may had ben used as things to lift their body of the ground or, when mating to hold on to the females back.


The females were larger and stronger than the males, so when mating the males really, really had to be careful. Also, unlike their relative Allosaurus and Daspletosaurus, tyrannosaurus hunted alone while its cousins hunted in groups.

Other Notes Edit
