Tyrannosaurus Rex (or T-Rex as it’s well known) is probably the most famous & most recognisable of all the Dinosaurs that ever walked the prehistoric lands. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, which translates to Tyrant Lizard King, possessed short stumpy arms which served ‘little’ purpose that we know of, but with its strong powerful legs & tail, sturdy body structure, a large head supporting a 4ft jaw (which is believed to have delivered a bone crushing 12,800 pound bite!) & 60 serrated conical teeth designed to pierce, grip, & tear through its prey, this ferocious beast was still a force to be reckoned with! Ruling the land about 65 to 70 million years ago, in the late cretaceous period, the formidable T-Rex had a carnivorous diet of many dinosaurs, such as Triceratops & Edmontosaurus to name a few. It has been suggested that it could devour 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite, and its powerful teeth would crush and brake bones as it ate!ACTUAL AS SEEN: The image shows the EXACT specimen you will receive. The specimen has been carefully hand selected and photographed. Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
