A new study shows that T. rex may be up to 70% larger than fossils indicate

There is no denying that tyrannosaurus rex It was one of the biggest and baddest dinosaurs ever to walk on this planet. But exactly how big could this ferocious dinosaur reach? In a new investigation, researchers have attempted to answer this question.

Paleontologists from the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, Ontario, estimated that the largest t-rex It may have tipped the scales at 33,000 lb (15,000 kg), making it heavier than the average school bus, which weighs about 24,000 lb (11,000 kg). The scientists presented their findings November 5 at the Society for Vertebrate Paleontology (SVP) annual conference in Toronto.
