Tyrannosaurus Rex’s name means “tyrant lizard” in Greek and Rex means “king” in Latin. This is a very apt name for the dinosaur that many people truly think of as the king of the dinosaurs. The Tyrannosaurus Rex was huge, powerful, and devoured its prey in gigantic bites with gigantic deadly teeth. The T-Rex was a large carnivorous dinosaur that walked on two legs and pretty much had its pick of prey.

Tyrannosaurus Rex lived in North America around 65 million years ago. T-Rex was a whopping 40 feet long and 15 tons in weight and estimated to have exerted the largest bite force of any terrestrial animal ever to live. T-Rex lived up to its name fully lording over all dinosaurs with its massive proportions, strength, and prey drive.
