The symbol of a mighty hunting dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurs weighed 6 tonnes or more yet could probably run faster than any human today, as suggested by the spacing of its preserved footprints. It was one of the very last dinosaurs, surviving to the great end-of-Cretaceous extinction 65 million years ago.

  

Bite marks of its teeth have been found on the plant-eating dinosaurs Triceratops. It’s large, strong teeth and thick, powerful neck suggest that it tackled living prey, biting with incredible power and pulling or ‘sawing’ its head from side to side to slice out chunks of flesh.

  

Its full name Tyrannosaurs rex, means ‘king of the tyrant reptiles’
