Really?  Because it seemed it took him forever to do anything during his brief tenure at State.

If you do run behind a T-rex, bear in mind that once he starts turning around, his tail can kill you as easily as his teeth.

FTA: "A big duck-billed Edmontosaurus or a Triceratops would have a harder time scooting behind an adult T. rex," Snively said. "And if a human- or even horse-sized juvenile tyrannosaur was chasing you, you'd probably be toast. Tasty, bloody toast."

I think Snively just outed himself as a vampire or a really weird person.  I just wouldn't describe bloody toast as tasty is all I'm saying.

So that's why they had such short arms, faster spinning during triple lutzes.

Tyrannosaurs were humongous - those that lived at the end of the Cretaceous period weighed at least 880 lbs. (400 kilograms).

Someone forgot a zero and it was a sig digit. I doubt T-Rex was only the mass of a medium bovine.

Well, the link to the megalodon teeth was interesting. $80 -100 for a real 3-4 inch specimen. Further research indicated $3-800 for a respectable 6 inch specimen.

Huhn.

No one has had to face this problem for the last 6000 years.

Well, it's technically correct.  They did weigh at least 880 lbs.

So an article about the agility of a T-Rex with a still from a video, but no *actual* video (or link to actual video) showing said agility? Did I miss it?
