The Mane 7 stared at the male Tyrannosaurus in terror, but it was Twilight who was the most terrified. She has actually read about T. Rex, they were the most powerful land predator ever too lived on the planet. The T. Rex appears to be a male, possibly in his 30's and in his prime. The right side of his face bares the scars that were left from a fight maybe from another Rex.
Even the Allosaurus stared in terror of the Tyrannosaur, even though they're big, but the male Rex is much bigger than they are. And 3 tons heavier, and the T. Rex has come for the kill. Tyrannosaurus might be predators, but they can't resist a chance to scavenged a kill from other predators. And when they do...
Nothing, gets in their way.
Of course, Allosaurus have never met Tyrannosaurus since both species were apart by 85 million years between each other. But the pack are not giving up this kill easily. As the Allosaurus were focus on their new opponent, the dragon realized that he'll be in serious trouble with the Tyrannosaur. And begins to climb to his feet, but the fight has left him with a damage leg.
Then 2 Allosaurus roars at the Tyrannosaurus trying to ward him off. But the T. Rex wasn't backing down from that, and then suddenly he bellowed a thunderous roar so loud, that even Twilight and her friends covered their ears.
Then one Allosaurus charges towards him, and snaps his jaws at him. But that only got his Death Warrant signed, cause the T. Rex sidesteps and clamps his enormous jaws on the Allosaur's shoulder. The Allosaurus roars and growls and a incredible amount of pain, and then the Tyrannosaurus clamps shuts his jaws completely. And the Allosaur's body limped lifelessly, then the T. Rex drops the body to the ground, and places his left foot on the neck, and lets out a thunderous roar.
It appears that Allosaurus has met their match, and lost their title as Top Predator of this land.
With one Allosaur down, the remaining members of the pack begin to back away in fear. They even tried roaring at him, but the Tyrannosaur has the bigger, louder roar and bigger in size.
Allosaurus will never fight a T. Rex.
Twilight and her friends watch as the Allosaurus pack turns and retreats. These Allosaurs are just out gunned, there is no way their going to stay, and fight. Heck, they won't even stay and challenged this monster. They'll do, what small predators have always had to do when someone bigger takes their food. They just have to wait their turn, and hope he leaves some scraps.
The dragon has finally managed to get his feet. And sees the T. Rex coming towards him, even though T. Rex is almost invincible even he needs to be careful when fighting a prey animal, injured or not.
Then the dragons roars proving that he won't go down without a fight. Then the male Tyrannosaur charges and roars, and the dragon charged as well. The T. Rex is the first the grab by the neck in his jaws as a fight begins. Twilight and the others were just 15 feet away from a massive fight, and the Rex's tail swung into a street light knocking over. Trying to get his teeth on the dinosaur, the dragon then shifts his body enough for his left arm to swat the predator's neck. The Tyrannosaurus lets go in surprise, and both lunged at each other as the male clamps his teeth on the side of the dragon's elongated neck, and swung around. The dragon's tail hits a street lamp as the T. Rex swung his neck over and bites him again. The 2 enormous reptiles roared, then the dragon has managed to place his left hand on the dinosaur's head and push it aside.
Then the dragon lets out a stream of fire at the dinosaur, but the T. Rex got out of way in time. The fire has created a wall smoke, but then the dragon flaps his wings to clear away the smoke and fire. And surprisingly the T. Rex is gone, as the dragon looks around trying to see where he was. Then suddenly the Tyrannosaurus lunges out of nowhere and clamps his jaws on the dragon's neck and forces him into crashing to the side of a building. The T. Rex then pulls him around as the fight continues, the dragon slams his body against, but being stronger the Tyrannosaur pushes him aside. Then the male Tyrannosaur forces him into a Cafe and the wall comes crashing down in pieces, and the T. Rex threw the dragon off his feet.
As the dragon got to feet and shook the pain off his head, the Tyrannosaurus then clamps his jaws on the dragon's neck. The dragon struggles to free himself as the T. Rex is now fueled by bloodlust and unleashes his rage and full fury on the wounded rival. Then finally, the Tyrannosaurus clamps his jaw fully shut with 5 tons of pressure and snaps his neck and spinal cord like it was nothing but a twig.
Then the dragon's body limps and slumps to the ground. Twilight and her friends were horrid of the scene, and even though Fluttershy is scared of dragons, she completely felt sorry for him.
Knowing that the dragon is dead, the Tyrannosaurus sniffs the body checking for any signs of life. And then he moves over to the base of the dragon's tail and clamps his teeth on the area. He then lift's it up and with a powerful jerk of his jaws, he dislodges the tail vertebrae and the tail was ripped apart from the body. Fluttershy, Rarity and Spike fainted from the sight of it. But Twilight was unable to peel her eyes from the Tyrannosaurus, Then the Scourge of the American West drops the tail. And picks up the body with every muscle in his legs, neck, jaws and back to lift the body and drags the carcass back the way he came.
Although that tail has meat on it, the most wanted parts of the carcass lied between the neck and hips. And that's the part the T. Rex carries off.
But the male Tyrannosaurus didn't get far. Then a whole pack of T. Rex appeared, it's actually the male's family. The pack is made of his mate, his eldest son about 18 years old, a young female 15 years old, preteen male 12 years old, a 5 year old female. And smallest of all, a male infant just 6 months old. That's a total of 6 members of his family.
As the T. Rex family walks off with their prize, the Allosaurus finally came out of their hiding spots. And went to see what was left, with only the tail and the dead member left behind.
The Alpha male Allosaur approaches his dead member, and sniff it. And then he begins to feed on his body. Like lot's of reptiles, Cannibalism is common in dinosaurs. One member cautiously approaches to feed, but the Alpha roars and claws and the member. The Allosaur wisely backs away and begin to join the feeding on the dragon's tail. The Allosaur's have spent too much energy in the fight, and decided to go with whatever is left. Their role has gone from hunter, to scavenger. it's a survival mechanism that all predators share. Pride, is not a dinosaur trait. Living to fight another is.
Meanwhile, the Tyrannosaurus family begin to feed on the carcass. And the father Rex pulls and rips a huge chunk of flesh from the corpse. And sicking sounds were heard from bones crunching and flesh ripping.
Having enough of the scene, Twilight and the others sneaked away from them and boarded the train as it left the station.
Meanwhile, the male Tyrannosaurus has notice the train leaving on the bridge. Thanks to his powerful eyesight he can see the train even from the distance their at.
And watches it as it got smaller.
Sometime later, the train is now halfway to Canterlot. And the Mane 7 were terrified still from the T. Rex.
'That, was the scariest thing I ever saw in my life.' Said Spike.
'Your telling me.' Fluttershy still shaking like mad.
'What was that thing?' Rainbow said.
'I'm afraid I do. But wish it never appeared.' Said Twilight.
'What do you mean?' Starlight asked.
' I've read about this dinosaur many times.' Said Twilight. 'It's called Tyrannosaurus Rex or T. Rex for short. And it's the most powerful predatory dinosaur.'
Everyone was concern about this.
'It's best we tell Princess Celestia about this as soon as we can.'
Meanwhile, at Ponyville.
A recent dinosaur has arrived called Lambeosaurus. A Hadrosaur with a almost ax shaped crest on it's head, and another new ceratopisan has appeared. It's called Sinoceratops, a distant relative to Triceratops and lives in Asia. And it's name means Chinese Horned Face. But unlike other ceratopisan which had frills completely covered by skin. Sinoceratops actually have a small opening on each side of the frill, and both are big enough for a small bird to perch and sit comfortable. Their much smaller than Triceratops, only 23 to 25 feet long and weigh 3 tons.
In the Everfree Forest, Blue and her sisters, Delta, Echo and Charlie which were recently named by the Mane 7. Were scouting the forest for food. The last time they were sighted by Ponyville was 2 weeks ago.
Meanwhile, on the railroad. The Tyrannosaurus family has actually followed the train. Using their strong sense of smell to track it down. And their heading dangerously towards Canterlot, with the male Rex leading them.
An hour later, unaware of what's heading their way. Twilight and her friends waited to be available to talk to Celestia. They've waited for about 2 hours now, and finally they were sent to the throne room to speak. And met Celestia, Luna and Cadance who was sent by a Royal summit. And Theo was with them, and is now twice as big when Celestia found him.
'Princess Celestia! We have something to tell you.' Said Twilight.
'I've just received word from what happen at Manehatten, Twilight.' Said Celestia. 'I'm afraid Manehatten may be off limits till further notice.'
'Yes, I know. The attack is terrible but, there's something else you should know.'
'Twilight, what's wrong?' Cadance noticing her and her friends shaken up. 'What happen out there?'
'Well. There's no easy way of explaining this.' Twilight explained. 'But there was something I really hoped didn't appear in Equestria.'
'What happen?' Celestia asked concerned.
'Manehatten has been attacked by another type of dinosaur, called...' Twilight uneasily. 'Tyrannosaurus Rex.'
The 3 princesses glanced each other not liking the sound of the name one bit.
Then, Twilight the Dinosaur Identifier and soon it showed a hologram of a T. Rex.
#SCANNING ANATOMY. SPECIES IDENTIFY#
IN 1902, IN THE NORTHWESTERN REGION OF THE UNITED STATES. PALEONTOLOGIST HAVE UNEARTHED A NEW SPECIES OF DINOSAUR, BUT WHAT THEY DIDN'T KNOW IS THAT THEY HAVE UNCOVERED ONE OF EARTH'S LEGENDARY MONSTERS. SOMETIME LATER, HENRY FAIRFIELD OSBORN HAS NAMED THIS DINOSAUR.
TYRANNOSAURUS REX, MEANING TYRANT LIZARD KING.
TYRANNOSAURUS WAS THE MOST POWERFUL LAND PREDATOR THE EARTH HAS EVER SEEN. T. REX TERRIFIED EVERY LIVING CREATURE IN IT'S TERRITORY. THEY LIVED IN NORTH AMERICA 68-65 MYA. RANGING FROM SOUTHERN CANADA, TO NORTHERN MEXICO. FOSSILS HAVE BEEN FOUND IN MONTANA, WYOMING, COLORADO, NEW MEXICO, AND NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA.
T. REX HAS QUICKLY THE MOST FAMOUS DINOSAUR OF ALL TIME AFTER IT'S DISCOVERY. AND HAS CLAIMED MANY TITLES OVER THE YEARS. THE KING OF DINOSAURS, THE SCOURGE OF THE AMERICAN WEST, IT WAS THE ULTIMATE PREDATOR. EVERYONE KNOWS THAT LIONS CLAIM THE TITLE THE KING OF BEASTS, BUT THAT TITLE SHOULD TRULY BELONG TO TYRANNOSAURUS, T. REX WAS A LIVING MONSTER.
IT WEIGHED 7 TONS, 15 TO 20 FEET TALL, AND MEASURED 40 TO 43 FEET LONG. THE SIZE OF A 18 WHEELER, T. REX HAVE ALSO BECAME POPULAR IN FILMS, TV SHOWS, AND MORE. AND T. REX TRULY BECAME FAMOUS IN STEVEN SPIELBERG'S JUNE 11th's 1993 FILM JURASSIC PARK.
IN AUGUST 12TH 1990, THE MOST COMPLETE SKELETON OF ANY T. REX HAS BEEN UNCOVERED. AND WAS GIVEN THE NAME, SUE. 90% OF HER BONES HAVE BEEN DUG UP. HER SIZE WAS A LENGTH OF 40 FEET, 12 FEET AT THE HIPS. AND MIGHT HAVE WEIGHED 13,000 POUNDS. SHE WAS ALSO ONE OF THE OLDEST T. REX EVER FOUND, SUE WAS 28 WHEN SHE DIED. BUT TYRANNOSAURUS HAVE HAVE LIVED FROM 50 TO 60 YEARS OF AGE.
TYRANNOSAURUS IS THE LARGEST LAND PREDATOR IN NORTH AMERICA, BUT THE 3RD LARGEST IN HISTORY AFTER GIGANOTOSAURUS AND SPINOSAURUS. ONE OF THE FEATURES OF T. REX ARE THEIR ARMS, THEIR ONLY AS LONG AS A GROWN MAN'S ARM WITH ONLY 2 FINGERS. BUT DESPITE THEIR SMALL APPEARANCE, THEY CAN HOLD 400 POUNDS. IT'S POSSIBLE THAT THEY CAN BOOST THE BODY UPWARD'S WHEN THE REX STAND'S UP AFTER LYING DOWN.
AND T. REX HAS POWERFUL SENSORY POWER. EYES THAT FACE FORWARD GIVING BINOCULAR VISION AND CAN SEE PREY FROM LONG DISTANCES, POWERFUL SENSE OF SMELL THAT'S MORE POWERFUL THEN EVEN TODAY'S DOGS. IT CAN PICK UP THE SCENT OF BLOOD FROM MILES AWAY. AND INCREDIBLE HEARING, THEY CAN EVEN SENSE THE VIBRATIONS THROUGH THE PADS OF IT'S FEET, ALLOWING THEM TO TRACK LARGE HERBIVORES.
AND TYRANNOSAURUS HAS A DEADLY WEAPON. IT'S SKULL IS ARMED WITH BONE CRUSHING JAWS, AND 60 SERRATED THICK TEETH. T. REX HAS THE STRONGEST JAWS OF ANY LAND ANIMAL BEFORE OR AFTER. T. REX BREAKS THE RECORD BOOKS WITH A BONE CRUSHING 12,800 POUNDS OF BITE FORCE. THOSE JAWS COULD CRUSH A 2 INCH STEEL PLATE. BUT THE TEETH OF T. REX HAVE A DEADLY WEAPON, POSSIBLY JUST LIKE THE KOMODO DRAGON, T. REX MAY HAVE A BACTERIAL SALIVA THAT MIXES WITH THE ROTTEN FLESH WHEN EATING OLD CARCASSES. THIS MEANS THE VICTIM WOULD DIE FROM A MASSIVE INCREDIBLY PAINFUL INFECTION, IF THE FIGHT HASN'T KILL IT FIRST.
FEW ANIMALS EVEN ESCAPE DEATH FROM TYRANNOSAURUS.
BUT EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE VERY DEADLY, T. REX DO ACTUALLY HAVE A SOFTER SIDE. PARENTAL CARE.
A MOTHER TYRANNOSAURUS WOULD GUARD AND DEFEND HER OFFSPRING FROM ANY PREDATORS. EVEN THE FATHER OF THE OFFSPRING HAS TO BE CAREFUL, FEMALE TYRANNOSAURUS ARE MORE AGGRESSIVE THAN THE MALES. IT'S BAD TO GET BETWEEN A MOTHER BEAR AND HER CUBS, BUT WORSE WITH A MOTHER TYRANNOSAURUS.
BUT EITHER WAY, TYRANNOSAURUS WAS SIMPLY, KING OF THE WORLD. EVEN A PACK OF RAPTORS, WAS NO MATCH FOR THIS NIGHTMARISH MONSTER. WHO WAS THE MOST FEROCIOUS PREDATOR...
OF ALL TIME.
Then the T. Rex hologram lets out a roar before closing and turning off.
Everyone just stared with concern and worried looks on their faces.
'That... can't be good.' Said Rainbow.
'Your Highness! We have a problem!' A guard appearing.
The danger is getting every closer.
So is the T. Rex.
At the entrance gates of the city, was a herd of ostrich like dinosaurs called Ornithomimus came running in and stop at the entrance.
And a herd of Ornithomimus are running scare.
A few ponies near the entrance saw them, and confused of what they were running from. But soon got their answer when a T. Rex limped into view. It was a female and not in the male's pack. Her limp was possibly cause with a fight on a prey animal.
And the T. Rex, that's why their spooked.
The Ornithomimus just stood at the entrance and the T. Rex lets out a roar and begins to approach them.
The ponies near the entrance saw the predator, and begin to flee.
Trapped, between the T. Rex, and the city of Canterlot. They hopped to the entrance.
And soon, one by one. The Ornithomimus takes off running into the city, and they are bolting through. The ponies are gonna get a real surprise, and soon the last one past through the gate.
In the Main Street, ponies saw the fleeing Ornithomimus and were concern of what they were running from.
But one Ornithomimus, is slower than the rest.
Behind the gate entrance, one Ornithomimus has yet to enter the city. And lets out a loud screech, he then turns and saw the T. Rex coming at him. And flees he tries zig-zagging to shake the predator's gaze. But the Tyrannosaurus is lock on to her victim. And he was now leading her into the city, he then made a sharp turn trying to shake her. But the predator has caught the Ornithomimus in her jaws and was soon dead, and after a bone chilling crunch. The female T. Rex leaves the city.
With her catch still not yet eaten, the hungry T. Rex limps off back the way she came.
From the castle, Twilight and the others saw the whole thing. But relived that the T. Rex is leaving.
'Okay. That was intense.' Said Rainbow.
'Hey Pinkie, is that your stomach?' Spike asked.
'What?' She asked.
'Do you feel something?'
Then they all felt a faint thump through the ground. And water in a cup shook with each vibration.
'Uh, what is that?' Cadance asked concern.
'Oh, no! It can't be!' Twilight fearing the worse.
'Can't be what, Twilight?' Luna asked.
'They must've followed us!'
Meanwhile at the gate entrance. The Tyrannosaurus family has arrived near the entrance, but when the male was to enter, he got a electric shock on his snout. As it turns out, a magic barrier up put up just before they arrived. Twilight has managed to tell the princess what she meant. But the T. Rex father then backs up, and then rams the shield like it was nothing, with the force a runaway freight train. The barrier was shattered like glass. And the family of 7 Tyrannosaurus entered the city.
Twilight and her friends saw the whole thing, and couldn't believe what they saw.
'H-How was that possible?!' Said Twilight. 'That was my strongest barrier!'
'And now it's not.' Said Spike.
Then suddenly, Theo begins to panic and begins to flee. They soon left the castle, and then they came across the mother Tyrannosaurus with a leg of a pony guard in her mouth. She's familiar with the scent of Triceratops, but Spike was the one who got her attention.
In the predator's mind she pictured a full grown version of Spike fighting and stealing meals from her family. And everything else, but she doesn't know that Spike is friendly kind of dragon.
Then the female swallows the pony, and growls.
'Uh, why is it starting at me like that?' Spike noticing the dinosaur looking at him.
'Don't move, guys! It can't see us if we don't move.' Rainbow said softly.
Pinkie and Spike then struck weird poses.
'Rainbow, she can see us just fine.' Said Twilight. 'It's a myth.'
'RRRRRRUUUUUUUNNNNNNN!' Fluttershy screamed.
The 3 princesses flew away. And Twilight and her friends zipped away from the mother as she started chasing them.
Meanwhile, in the city. The father Rex was causing panic as ponies flee for their lives. And then he notice a street light, and clamps his jaws on it.
Then a pony pulling a large cart with a few ponies is now being chased by the eldest son. He soon pulls aside it, and then slams his head on the cart and the pony pulling jumps inside. And the cart crashes inside a store.
Back with the father, dozens of ponies were running for their lives. Then one pony pulls aside and runs towards a store to escape the giant who is now after him. But when he got to the doors, they're pulled outside doors. And then the T. Rex snatches him in his jaws.
Meanwhile, Twilight and Spike who was on her back. Have managed to lose the mother, but soon found the father just up ahead. And soon he catches their scent as well as Spike. And lets out a roar.
'Uh oh.' Spike panicked.
Then suddenly, a pole was knock over and the giant donut of Donut Joe's shop rolls past them. And they watch it as it did. But then, the father Rex kneels down under a walk way as Twilight turns and runs as the Tyrannosaurus charges after them, and he left foot hits the side of a cart and flips it over.
'Not good! Not good! Not good!' Said Spike.
They soon ran pass soon Royal Guards trying to stop the dinosaurs, but when the T. Rex stops and sees them the guards came to a stop. And the father Rex lets out a roar and was enough to send them turn tail and run.
meanwhile, Twilight have managed to regroup with the others.
'Twilight, glad to see you!' Rarity said.
'Yeah, but we need to get out of here!' Twilight said.
'Where's the Rex? Is it still behind us?' Rainbow asked.
Then suddenly, the father Rex crashes through the wall of a building still in hot pursuit.
'I had to ask?!' Rainbow taking off running with the others.
But they didn't get far as then the mother appeared, and now they were cornered by the 2 Cretaceous monsters.
'G-G-G-Guys! Why d-do I have a feeling their after m-m-m-me?' Spike stuttering and hugging Twilight.
'It was nice knowing you guys!' Fluttershy preparing the worse.
As the Tyrannosaurus adults begin to make the final lunge. A loud sound suddenly halted them, and caught their attention. They looked to the direction of the sound and saw strangely a large rock caught on flames hitting the ground with a hard impact force. Then Celestia, Luna and Cadance appeared confused as well.
Then suddenly, the ground begins to shake. And cracks in the ground appeared with a fiery glow, everyone knew that something is wrong.
'Uh, what is that?' Applejack asked.
Then the Tyrannosaurus pair quickly knew what the tremor was, and their way familiar with it. The mother instinctively calls out to her offspring who felt the tremor and begin to retreat the city as the shaking grew stronger. And a deep rumble was heard.
And then, the cracks in the ground started releasing strong jets of steam.
'This... can't be good.' Twilight said fearfully.
Twilight and her friends must escape Canterlot.
As a dark secret is beginning to reveal deep below.
Teaser for Next Chapter.
The top of the Canterlot mountain blows off in a huge explosion.
Twilight was running for life as some Compys were running near her.
'RUN! She shouted.
The princesses and her friends grew nervous and with a growing fear.
'RUN!' Twilight shouted.
Then bursting from the trees and smoke, came an army of a stampede as dinosaurs and ponies running out of the forest. 2 Apatosaurus ran as the mountain unleashed a explosion, Twilight and her group ran for their lives as a lava bomb crashes down near.
The stampede continues as Theo and an Ankylosaurus ran, and a Gallimimus bumps into a Allosaurus. And a pyroclastic flow was behind them.
Twilight quickly got behind a log as 2 Compys rushed pass her. A Stegosaurus busts through a log on the right, and Theo busts the log on the left. And a Iguanodon climbs over a boulder and leaps over and runs over pass them. And an Ankylosaurus, 2 Gallimimus and 2 Apatosaurus and a Diplodocus ran pass them.
