Tyrannosaurus rex was a fierce predator that walked on two powerful legs. This meat-eater had a huge head with large, pointed, replaceable teeth and well-developed jaw muscles. It had tiny arms, each with two fingers. Each bird-like foot had three large toes, all equipped with claws (plus a little dewclaw on a tiny, vestigial fourth toe). T. rex had a slim, stiff, pointed tail that provided balance and allowed quick turns while running. T. rex's neck was short and muscular. This hand painted replica comes equipped with booklet containing scientific data about Tyrannosaurus Rex and a figure of a human in the same scale, to facilitate comparison of the size. Sculpted in close cooperation with the Natural History Museum of the Humboldt-University Berlin.
Towering over other dinosaurs, the terrible T-Rex ran swiftly with long strides. Although it looked menacing, the T-Rex had little use for its short arms which only had two claws and could not reach its mouth. At almost twenty feet high and almost forty feet long, the T-Rex was not a great hunter but a scavenger, eating what other animals or dinosaurs left behind. Even though it had over fifty teeth that were over six inches long, its teeth were not used to chew but to tear since it swallowed its meals in chunks. To have better depth perception in looking for its next meal, the eyes of the T-Rex were both pointed forward so that its vision overlapped.
