Tyrannosaurus rex, the so-called ‘king of the tyrant lizards’, is probably the most famous dinosaur of all time. At up to 40 ft long, it remains one of the largest known meat-eating dinosaurs. However, recent discoveries of feathered T-Rex dinosaurs are changing our understanding of the life appearance of this popular species.
History: Specimens of earlier, smaller tyrannosaurs from China, Dilong and Yutyrannus, have been found with feathers preserved. This evidence suggests that Tyrannosaurus may have also had feathers because these species are related. Tyrannosaurus even had a wishbone resembling those of modern birds.
Scientific Name: Tyrannosaurus rex
Characteristics: Tyrannosaurus is a muscular carnivore with large jaws filled with teeth the size of bananas. It walked on two muscular legs and had relatively tiny arms with two-fingered hands. With the discovery of its relative Yutyrannus, some scientists believe Tyrannosaurus may have sported feathers.
Size: This stunningly detailed t-rex dinosaur toy is 12 inches long and 5.25 inches high.
