Tyrannosaurus rex , or “T-Rex”, is one of the most well-known dinosaurs of all time. And with good reason! It’s one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs ever found, growing to over 40 feet long, with teeth that could measure over a foot in length! This Tyrannosaurus Rex toy figure is much smaller than the real thing, but still full of excellent details (and teeth)!
- History: This theropod dinosaur was one of the last non-bird dinosaurs, dying out at the end of the Cretaceous Period around 66 million years ago. Throughout time T-Rex has been thought of as both a predator and a scavenger, though today most scientists believe it was a hunter who preyed on other dinosaurs, such as ceratopsians and ornithopods.
- Scientific name: Tyrannosaurus rex meaning ‘tyrant lizard’ and ‘king’
- Characteristics: This Tyrannosaurus figure is rearing up with its mouth wide open, showing off its renowned chompers. This is a great figure for young dino-fans looking for a detailed and accurate version of the tyrant lizard on a small scale.
- Size: This Tyrannosaurus Rex toy figure measures about 7 inches long and 4 ½ inches tall. It’s around the size of a post card.
