A new study in to the behaviour of legendary dinosaur Tyrannosaurus rex has revealed that this fearsome predator would have been unlikely to attack adult dinosaurs and would have picked on defenseless youngsters instead.
Contrary to depictions in films, in books, and with plastic toys on the living room rug, T. rex and its large predatory kin very rarely attacked full-grown adult dinosaurs, a new study says.Instead the famed carnivore was most likely a dinosaur bully, picking off defenseless youngsters.
