For those who have been following the blog. Here is Jacks Document, where Jack introduces the T Rex. He sat with me and we wrote notes down of what he wanted it to say. Using the power of google for some facts. So here we go.
Full Name: Tyrannosaurus Rex
(Also goes by the name King of the Jungle. Which is what Jack likes to call it.)
T Rex lived during the Cretaceous Period, 68-66 million years ago. This was know as the Maastrichtian age, and were the last years of the Cretaceous Period. Before the Paleogene period started. They lived on an island continent known as Laramidia, which is the area now known as western North America.
They belonged to the Theropod group of dinosaurs, and were part of the Tyrannosaurids family. These were primarily large predators just like the T Rex. (Jack says that means they eat meat)
T Rex has been measured as high as 12 metres tall, and estimated to weigh up to 14 tonnes. Although other theropod dinosaurs were bigger. It is estimated that T Rex exerted the strongest bite force among all terrestrial animals. This is what has led to its fame, and use in movies and other media. (Jack says his big head and massive jaw is what makes T Rex cool)
One of its most obvious features, are it’s big legs and little arms. (Jack thinks it’s arms look funny)T Rex was the last known member of the tyrannosaurids, and among the last non-avian dinosaurs to exist before the Creraceous-Paleogene extinction event.
This could explain why recent theories have suggested T Rex might have had feathers. Experts appear to be split on this matter. (Jack thinks that some had feather and some didn’t)
Jack would like to finish with a question. He would like to know what everybody’s favourite dinosaur is? He wants to know what the most popular dinosaur is. Leave your answer in the comments. Jack is looking forward to seeing them.
