    Hello everybody,

    I was doing a little research about Tyrannosaurus' and i found interesting article about MoR 008,and UCMP 137538 which are apparently bigger then Sue from Field Museum of Natural History-Chicago.

    The only problem with that UCMP and MoR 008 is that they are only small fragment of bone some part of a leg that is larger then Sue's.
    As for MoR 008-his skull is a bit bigger then Sue's also.

    I want to ask you,as a professionals is it possible that UCMP 137538 is bigger then Sue?

    P.S

    I know this isn't right place to ask,but i was wondering,did Jurassic Park made T-Rex accurate or is it to big?

    Everyone comment is welcome

    I watched both the movie and a documentary about making the movie. They went to a great deal of time and money to produce the most accurate depiction of the T-Rex that they could based on the most current evidence available. My personal opinion is they did a very good job, and I especially liked that they gave the T-Rex enough intelligence to be a good predator.

    Did they depict it having feathers? I gather this is now thought likely.

    I have the feeling this is bad news for film-makers, as it it seems to me probably harder to make an excitingly terrifying simulation of a giant, meat-eating chicken than of something more like a lizard or crocodile.

    Then again, maybe not: Baba Yaga's hut on hen's legs must surely be one of the most nightmarish concepts in any European fairy story.....

    Feathered theropods is a very recent shift in thinking and so it was very resonable not to have them on the JP "Sue".

    As for the MoP and UCMP specimens, its highly likely they were larger then Sue, who is most famous for being one of the most complete specimens found, more so the for her size.

    They've never found any indication of feathers on an adult T-Rex. But that doesn't mean they didn't have any. Either way, I doubt if there's much resemblance to a chicken.

    Sure, I was being a bit flippant. I just like the idea of the fearsome T Rex all covered with feathers. Joking apart, acc. Wiki, there IS evidence for other "tyrannosaurs", if not T Rex itself, having had feathers.

    I understand they have a fairly complete skeleton of Sue. That would make for a really good comparison. Anyway I was reading up on T-Rex size, and it said they really slow down when they become adult heavy weights, which makes me wonder how difficult it becomes to be a successful slow moving predator with a big appetite.

    One theory I've heard is they might hunt in groups where the faster teen T-Rex's chase down the prey and the big guy comes in to finish the pray off. Also, maybe the big guy just steals kills from other predators, it must be very hard to argue with a large T-Rex. But I'm betting they are opportunist and will take any food they come across.

    Yeah i heard they may hunt in groups too.
    I saw hunt you just describe on "When Dinosaurs Roamed America" documentary.

    And one last question,since i never saw any dinosaur skeleton and especially not T-Rex,i don't know what height they were.
    Im most impressed with Sue because she's largest and most complete T-Rex ever found.
    So my question is:What is real T-Rex Sue's height at hips?
    I check 7-10 sites claiming it's from 11-18 feet tall.
    And if you know please tell me-also what would be it's height with flesh-out(flesh,cartilage,soft tissue and rest)?

    P.S

    Sorry im boring,but i really don't know where else to ask,i asked Field Museum of Chicago,but they never answer.

    Per Wikipedia

    Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest land carnivores of all time; the largest complete specimen, FMNH PR2081 ("Sue") measured 12.3 metres (40 ft) long, and was 4 metres (13 ft) tall at the hips.
