The Tyrannosaurus Rex (Tyrant Lizard King) was a large theropod Dinosaur from the Cretaceous Period and one of the most famous dinosaurs of all time.

History

Teeth from the T-Rex were first discovered by Arthur Lakes in Colorado in the 1874 and were first believed to be from an Ornithomimus species. It was later rediscovered by Edward Drinker Cope is 1892, finding two fragments of vertebrae. He Believed them to be from a dinosaur from Ceratopsia and named it Manospondylus Gigas (Giant Porous Vertebra).

In 1900, Barnum Brown found the first skeleton to be given the name Tyrannosaurus Rex.

Due to its early discovery, T-Rex has had many changes in reconstructions over time. Like many theropods, T-Rex was originally reconstructed with an upright back and tail dragged along the ground like a kangaroo. Whether or not T-Rex had Feathers is still debated.
