Tyrannosaurus Rex is the world's most famous dinosaur, along with Triceratops, Velociraptor, Stegosaurus, Spinosaurus, and Brontosaurus. They have black feathers that are found all around the body, except for the head, which is blood red. The absence of feathers on the head is for the same reason that modern vultures have no feathers on their heads: to prevent the spread of bacteria.

Tyrannosaurus had a bacteria-filled mouth that is somewhat similar to a Komodo dragon's bite. If a Tyrannosaurus couldn't kill it's prey right away, then it would follow it's target and waited for the killer bacteria to weaken it's prey. Once it collapsed and couldn't get up again, Tyrannosaurus would swoop in for the kill.

Tyrannosaurus Rex were found all around North America and were the apex predators of their time. They also scavenged carcasses and the young could learn to duck their heads underwater in order to catch fish. Adult Tyrannosaurus would occasionally cannibalize younger Tyrannosaurus that weren't related to them.

Tyrannosaurus Rex lived in loosely formed packs and often fought with one another for dominance. Tyrannosaurus had multiple weapons in it's arsenal that it could use: it's teeth, it's tail, their giant foot claws, the head (which could be used as a devastating battering ram), and their bacteria. Their teeth were the size and shape of a banana and they could use their great roars to disorientate close by creatures, prey or predator.

Tyrannosaurus Rex had small arms in dinosaur standards, but that is because they evolved to have a devastating bone-crunching bite. If Tyrannosaurs had survived past the Cretaceous extinction event and the volcanic atmosphere that was killing the dinosaurs off before the asteroid hit, they might have lost their arms all together. Despite their arms being relatively small, they were still powerful and were the size of an adult human's arm.

Despite popular belief, it wasn't the singular large asteroid that killed Tyrannosaurus Rex and the rest of the dinosaur dynasty. The large asteroid carried a gravitational field of it's own and picked smaller asteroids, comets, and meteors in it while it headed in the direction of earth.

Tyrannosaurus are an aggressive species. Good news: they won't attack for no reason. Bad news: they don't need much of a reason. All you have to do is get into their personal space or look at them directly in the eye and you can find yourself on the wrong side of a Tyrannosaur's mouth.

Tyrannosaurus at the end of the Cretaceous had black and grey feathers to camouflage with the volcanic ash common around the volcanoes of ancient North America. However, at the beginning of their reign, Tyrannsaurus feathers were green, yellow, orange, black, grey, and red feathers to camouflage with the forests of the Cretaceous.

Significant events that have happened that have included the Tyrannosaurus are Cronus nearly eating Nigel, the Tyrannosaurus pack defeating the Indominus Rex during the Indominus Incident, and Cronus nearly killing Indy by himself.

Prehistoric Park's pack may be dangerous, but are truly a sight to behold. When they roar, it sounds like the very earth is roaring, and they are extremely protective parents. As long as they are in a visitor safe and proper environment, they will be available for the world to wonder at for generations.
