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.

Its front limbs were tiny and its hands were reduced to just two tiny fingers. They were far too small and weak to walk on, fight off other dinosaurs, or grasp prey, so what they were for is a mystery. Perhaps, like the human appendix, they didn’t have any function.
