Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaurs are notorious for being one of the biggest, scariest carnivores to ever walk the planet. Before we get started, here are a few fun T-Rex facts you can talk about with the kids while they make their dino bracelet.
Fun T-rex facts for kids
- Tyrannosaurus Rex means ‘Tyrant Lizard King’, derived from Greek and Latin words
- The T-Rex lived in North America, approximately 65-68 million years ago – what is known as the Cretaceous period
- It was approximately the size of a two-story house: around 12m (40 feet) in length and 6m (20 feet) tall
- Their teeth were the size of bananas and could rip up to 100kg of meat off in a single chomp
- The T-rex’s arms were strong enough to hold prey but too short to reach its mouth
- For a long time its been assumed that T-Rex’s were fast runners (especially by Hollywood movies). However, new research shows that humans could outrun them. Their top speed is estimated at around 12 miles per hour – any faster than that and their bones would have shattered
- It’s believed that the T-Rex’s were smart because their brain size was twice as big as that of other giant carnivores
