Cut-out puppet of a Tyrannosaurus rex

Tyrannosaurus rex

Tyrannosaurus rex lived about 67 million to 65 million years ago in what is now called North America.

It was a meat-eater nearly 13 metres in length standing upright on its powerful hind legs.

Although its front legs were tiny by comparison, there is evidence that they were also strong and muscular, perhaps for holding on to its prey.

Its teeth could be up to 30 centimetres long and were shaped rather like bananas.
