T-rex Schleich Dinosaur Scale Model
* 7 inch (18 cm)
Tyrannosaurus lived throughout what is now western North America, which then was an island continent named Laramidia. Tyrannosaurus had a much wider range than other tyrannosaurids. Fossils are found in a variety of rock formations dating to the Maastrichtian age of the upper Cretaceous Period, 68 to 66 million years ago.
Tyrannosaurus rex was certainly the most dangerous dinosaur of its time. It had a huge mouth full of long teeth. He could hardly use the front legs with claws because they did not even reach to its mouth. Some scientists doubt that he was a good hunter and believe that he was probably a scavenger.
