View Full Version : T-Rex, Warrior or Wimp?

January 6th, 2009, 08:20 PM
It's just what the title says. Do you think T-rex is a warrior or a wimp. Now here are five parts of one almost an hour long video.


Now what do you think. I realize you might not be able or even want to watch all of these in one go. So watch at your own pace.

I dont even need to watch that to know the Tyrannosaurus rex

Warrior at first thought. It's pretty deadly.

But something tells me I need to watch the vids..=_=

Well first I'm not watching the videos I'm answering this with my own knowledge, T-Rex's where believed to actully be scavengers and not hunters, however with the powerful jaws they had they could easily hold there own in a fight, so on that basis i wouldn't call them either.

I've already watched enough dinosaur documentaries in my time; only went through part one.
Rex was probably to reptiles what a tiger is to mammals and a great white is to fish. An effective predator, no more.

Hey guys, Pandas have some pretty sharp teeth but you don't see it running around and eating up Chinese people do you?

I've yet to see any real proof that it was a carnivore at all.

How could it be wimp? It is the most dangerous of all Dinosaurs. I think it eats everything.

Proof of diet in dinosaurs tends to lie in the stomach area of the fossil (and faeces, though in that case I don't know how they are supposed to tell which belong to who), if anything there remains preserved. If not, then if similar dinosaurs are found to eat meat, it's most likely rex did too.

I've watched the last part, and about the hadrosaur(spelling) with an injury on it's vertebrae with healed bones around it, I conclude the T-rex is a predator. It may become a scavenger if the food supply is limited and scarce. It's like a tiger, which can switch from predator-scavenger-vegie. Just like that.

It was a warrior but it did have little cute/funny arms.

I hope people's opinions aren't swayed by National Geographic Videos...honeslty...we don't really know what life was like when Dinosaurs were alive...
