Facts

T-Rex's head was about 5 feet long. Its skull had holes in it which made it lighter and easier to carry around.

T-Rex was one of the best known dinosaurs, but it didn't live all that long. T-Rex came along just before the dinosaurs became extinct.

You often see T-Rex pictures with his tail stretched out behind him. He did this for balance.

T-Rex had a very good sense of smell.

When T-Rex ran, he could go 20 miles per hour and could cover 15 feet in one step!
