Welcome to Andrew's world of the prehistoric.
That's something else those jaws of the T. rex, Tyrannosaurus Rex, king of the Tyrannosaurid family which included others such as; Albertosaurus the smaller cousin, the lesser known Alioramus he's got a longer snout. These theropods all lived in the late Cretaceous period about 65 to 67 million years ago. Theropods are all the birdlike dinosaurs that got around on two legs. Another well know theropod, Allosaurus, Just as vicious as T. rex roamed North America in the late Jurassic period about 150 million years ago. Hey why didn't he land an appearance in Jurassic Park.
The age of the dinosaurs consisted of 3 eras. The Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous. The rule of their trilogy amounts to about 220 to 67 million years ago. Amazing how they dominated and lived for so long. The earth formed about 4500 million years ago, so don't think of dinosaurs coming about at the beginning of time. They ruled for 160 million years in the last quater of the eart's time line. That's alot for us to live up to. We have a long way to go before we are as successful as the dinosaurs. It's like two hands cupped together full of sand. And our time here amounts to only 3 or 5 grains of that sand.
