Since the discovery of T. Rex, paleontologists and scientists have been wondering about the T. Rex’s hunting style. Scientists where debating whether T. Rex was a hunter or a scavenger. Most scientists agreed with the argument that T. Rex was a scavenger as scientists argued that he was too big and too slow to hunt prey and most likely lived as a scavenger. However, a relatively recent discovery sheds light on this scarcely known topic.
A fossil of a hadrosaurs’ tail was found with a tooth embedded in it. It was discovered in the Hell Creek Formation in Montana. The tooth was identified as that of a T. Rex. The fossil was analyzed with a CT Scan. This showed scientists that T. Rex bit the duckbill so hard and aggressively that the tooth broke off, and the hadrosaur got away.
The scan also revealed that the hadrosaur lived a long time after the encounter with the T. Rex. And for me it’s really cool to know that T. Rex was conclusively a predator, 40 feet long, 7-ton beast prowling the Cretaceous landscape.
