Tyrannosaurus rex Saurischia Theropoda

Skeleton of Tyrannosaurus
Tyrannosaurus is one of the largest carnivorous dinosaur. This dinosaur has a robust skull with large teeth, and is considered to have a strong bite force. The forelimbs have only two digits and is extremely small compared to the stout hindlimbs. They grew so rapidly that they reached adult body size in about 25 years. It has been argued whether they were an active predator or a scavenger.
