Tyrannosaurus rex, often referred to as T. rex, is arguably the most famous dinosaur of all. Known for its enormous size and fearsome appearance, T. rex was a top predator in the late Cretaceous period, about 68 to 66 million years ago. This dinosaur could grow up to 40 feet long and weigh as much as 9 tons.

Features: T. rex had powerful jaws equipped with serrated teeth that could crush bone, and its keen sense of smell made it an adept hunter. Its short but strong arms ended in two-fingered hands, which were likely used to grip prey.
