T. Rex couldn't stick out its tongue

Still Waters

Dinosaurs are often depicted as fierce creatures, baring their teeth, with tongues wildly stretching from their mouths like giant, deranged lizards. But new research reveals a major problem with this classic image: Dinosaurs couldn't stick out their tongues like lizards. Instead, their tongues were probably rooted to the bottoms of their mouths in a manner akin to alligators.

T-Rex still one of the most awe inspiring dinosaurs.

They must have had incredible strength in thier jaws and stood on thier prey in an ambush style of attack. 

The image of a T-Rex launching itself at its prey just seem too rediculous to comprehend.

With teeth like they had, maybe it was a good plan to have the tongues rooted well and out of the way :)

Amazing things, the dinos. I think if I could pick a time to fly around invisibly like an eagle and just look, it would be the dino era I would choose. I'd like to see a T-rex, and pterodactyls and a direwolf :).

Surely that should be, If there was two things it wasn't good at? The first was scratching it's nose.

With those feet, the tongue would have been the last thing to worry about.
