Bite marks on a theropod bone confirm it was gnawed 'like a piece of fried chicken'

Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest and most ferocious carnivores to ever walk the planet and it is now clear that even their own kind wasn't off the menu.

Peculiar grooves found in the bone of a tyrannosaur recently uncovered in Wyoming strongly suggest it was gnawed by another large theropod.

Palaeontologists also found serrated edges and believe that the only possible explanation is that the bone was chewed on by a T.rex.

Really doesn't surprise me, even people have been known to eat other people when pressed for food, I have a feeling many canivores would.

No, that was Indominus Rex. It didn't go over that well.

Make sense to me. Didn't the experts say that T-Rex was very likely the hyena of the ancient world, eating carrion? Well, T-Rex has to die sometime, and who's going to eat it?

Not really shockedby this at all. It's not like it was belived that T-rex had the ability to reason out why it shoildn't eat its own kind. Sees rival, fights rival, rival runs or dies, rival dies and gets eaten.
