Deadly Dinosaurs - Do you know your carnivores?

The Tyrannosaurus Rex is arguably the most famous and most feared of all the dinosaurs. But what do we really know about this amazing creature?

He was a meat-eater. He was independent and hunted on his own rather than in a group. This fierce carnivore had teeth that were the size of bananas. If he fell over when running he would probably die as he was unable to get back up.

This killing machine had two very small hands with two fingers on each hand.

As you might have guessed, our topic this term is all about dinosaurs. Georgie's favourite dinosaur is a t-rex and Kane's is one of the spiky tail ones. I think the biggest dinosaur is a bracheosaurus. It looks like a diplodocus but it has a longer neck. T-rex has teeth the size of a banana and the fierce t-rex is almost the size of a bracheosaurus so it must be very big. The spiky tail one uses it's tale as a weapon because if it needed to fight it would swing it's tale around in circles and will kill it's enemy.

I've read that several creatures are still with us today, and have changed very little, that lived alongside dinosaurs when they inhabited the planet. I wonder who can research and find out which creatures I read about?

It was believed that dinosaurs died out by a giant meteor crashing into the earth and destroying their atmosphere :c

The Argentinosaurus is named the Argentinosarurs because its fossils were found in Argentina.

The Tyrannosaurus means lizard and the rex means king so the t-rexs real name is lizard king

Some interesting facts about the T-Rex. Also, did you know that the T-Rex was built for running and not climbing and we know it as the 'King of the Beasts'.

In answer to your question Mr Ryan, Amphibians (frogs, toads, salamanders), fish, mammals (mostly small and shrew-like), reptiles (turtles, lizards, snakes), all the invertebrates (molluscs, insects, crustaceans) were alive in the time of the Dinosaurs.

Tyrannosaurus means 'tyrant lizard'. Baby T-Rexes were covered in feathers that disappeared
when they grew older!

I think that crocodiles and horseshoe crabs were alive at the time of the dinosaurs.
