Tyrannosaurus rex is a large and fearsome, carnivorous dinosaur. They were bipedal members of the Order Saurischia, and the average adult specimen weighed in at roughly seven-tons. There arms were quite small, however, new evidence shows that they were strong enough to actually drag themselves or push themselves off of the ground when they were resting or had fallen. This trait has led some to believe that the animal was a massive scavenger, although it is possible that the jaws were so effective for killing large prey that the need for advanced fore-limbs gradually faded away.
Tyrannosaurus is featured in many popular films, books,and shows, and it is hailed as the mightiest carnivore, even if carnivores such as Carcharadontosaurus, and Gigantosaurus were larger. It has been proven that T. rex would have been more adept in a fight with one such animal due to the massive force behind its bite. An adult Tyrannosaurus, for example, could easily compress a large truck with a single, concentrated bite.
