Films like Jurassic Park have led us to believe that Tyrannosaurus rex was capable of chasing down its prey at full tilt. New research done with simulations suggest this dino was no sprinter, and that it couldn’t move any faster than a brisk walk. Well, a brisk walk for a nine ton carnivore. At a top speed of 12 miles…
For the second time in the past few months, Americans went to the polls and voted in a way that will have half the country scratching its heads. Kicking the classic boot, wheelbarrow, and thimble tokens to the curb, the nation has chosen to replace those classic Monopoly tokens with a rubber ducky, a penguin, and a…
On top of the groundbreaking visual effects that helped bring the stars of Jurassic Park back from extinction, the film’s creators also strived to make some of the dinosaurs, including the Tyrannosaurus Rex, as accurate as possible. Which means that Chronicle Collectibles’ new Jurassic Park T-rex bust is the easiest…
A Japanese company called On-Art Corporation wants to build a Jurassic Park-like attraction called “Dino-A-Park.” But instead of spending billions of dollars trying to bring extinct creatures back to life, the company has instead created some of the most life-like and realistic dinosaur costumes you’ve ever seen.
For $100,000, Hammacher Schlemmer will sell you a life-size replica of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, but for $2.39 million Theropod Expeditions will sell you the real thing—or at least 45 percent of one. With 135 of its 300 bones being genuine fossils collected in Montana and Wyoming, it’s more complete than many T-rex…
Say hello to Timurlengia euotica, a horse-sized dinosaur that lived roughly 90 million years ago. Discovered in Uzbekistan, this newly described species was a distant relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, and it’s helping scientists explain how relatively small carnivores evolved into the gigantic predators that dominated…
Okay, so it’s actually American Ninja Warrior competitor Reko Rivera in a T-Rex suit. It’s a good thing, too, since those little T-Rex arms would have trouble on the training course.
Yes, we’re all familiar with the jokes about the Tyrannosaurus Rex having big heads and itty bitty arms, but they’re funny when you apply the right amount of slapstick. And it’s endlessly fun to watch the dinosaur of Jerry Teo’s Rex Regrets try — and regret — all sorts of modern activities.
Meet Nanuqsaurus hoglundi. Based on its 25-inch-long skull, its body was probably half the length of a Tyrannosaurus Rex's, but this petit tyrannosaurid was an apex predator of the Arctic.
Astronaut Karen Nyberg's son is getting a special gift when she gets home from her latest mission: a toy Tyrannosaurus she made from scraps while aboard the International Space Station.
It looks like the most badass predator to have ever roamed the Earth, but paleontologists have struggled to prove that Tyrannosaurus rex actually hunted its prey, leading some to believe that it was a scavenger. Now, the discovery of a T-rex tooth embedded in the tail of a hadrosaur offers the first direct evidence.
If you're weary of the same manga pretty boys and girls who inhabit most dating simulation games, then take a toothy stab at Jurassic Heart. This brief dating sim lets you go on a date with a truly unusual beau: a ukelele-loving Tyrannosaurus Rex.
It was probably the most fearsome battle to ever take place in the animal kingdom: The super-apex predator Tyrannosaurus versus the heavily armored Triceratops. Based on the fossil records, paleontologists have known for quite some time that the two Cretaceous-era dinosaurs often went head-to-head. But given the…
If you've always wondered how Tyrannosaurs Rex ate the horned monstrosity that was a Triceratops, you need puzzle no longer. Scientists have finally pieced together how they did it—and it was surprisingly straightforward.
He used to go by Tyler Gold, but a 23-year-old Nebraska man shall henceforth be known by his official title of Tyrannosaurs Rex Joseph Gold. According to Nebraska's York News-Times:
Somehow, the Smithsonian Channel has beaten Syfy at its own monster fighting game. They've pit the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex against the gigantic snake Titanoboa in a prehistoric grudge match, animated the possible outcomes for each carnivorous side.
Last year, we learned that Tyrannosaurus rex was up to 30% bigger than we once thought. Now, new evidence suggests we may have vastly underestimated its jaw strength, as well.
Holy hell, is Jamie Price's massive tyrannosaurus rex skeleton costume the ultimate in dinosaur cosplay. As you can see in the video above, the skeleton is a giant puppet that the user operates.
Dinosaurs ruled Earth for 160 million years, but they didn't get that way by running everywhere. What little we can tell about dinosaur anatomy suggests they could barely run at all. But they could power walk...thanks to their muscular rumps.
As if the Tyrannosaurus Rex wasn't big and scary and sharp toothy enough, scientists are now saying that they're EVEN BIGGER. Using 3D laser scans, scientists virtually weighed T-Rexes and found that those badass beasts weighed in 30 percent heavier than expected.
