Title: Familiar Fossils- Sensational Sue: Queen of Dinosaurs
Issue Date: Mar-2011
Publisher: NISCAIR-CSIR, India
Abstract: TYRANT lizard king. That is the meaning of the name Tyrannosaurus rex, which everyone knows, as flesh-eating dinosaur. It is now, thankfully, quite extinct. T. rex as it is familiarly called has been described thus by Roy Chapman Andrews, “When erect on his two hind limbs, he was 18 ft (5.5 m) high. The small forelimbs were equipped with large talons. The great mouth opened a yard wide and was armed with double-edged dagger like teeth six inches (15cm) long. Its food was the flesh of other dinosaurs.”
