We continue our Bishop Museum Dinosaurs Unleashed series with the “Tyrant Lizard King” known as the Tyrannosaurus Rex. This carnivore grew to 40 or 50 feet long with a 4 foot long head and a mouth full of 6 inch fangs with powerful jaw muscles. The T-Rex also has some bird-like characteristics such as a wishbone, hollow bones and bird-like ankles and feet. Some scientists believe it hatchlings may have been covered in hair-like downy feathers. They lived in the Late Cretaceous period largely in North America (Texas, Wyoming, Montana, Alberts and Saskatchewan).
