Tyrannosaurus rex (meaning "tyrant lizard king"), also known as T. rex, is an extinct species of tyrannosaur in the genus Tyrannosaurus that lived in North America during the Late Cretaceous period around 68-65 million years ago. The undisputed king of the dinosaurs, it coexisted alongside many well known dinosaurs such Triceratops, Ankylosaurus, Pachycephalosaurus, Ornithomimus, Troodon, Edmontosaurus, Alamosaurus, Nanotyrannus, and the pterosaur Quetzalcoatlus.

Creation

Seven Tyrannosaurus rex were cloned by InGen scientists in their compound on Isla Sorna, circa 1990. The Tyrannosaurus, according to JurassicWorld.com, had lived on Isla Nublar for 25 years, so Tyrannosaurus was most likely born around 1990. This also means that it would have been 3 years old of age at the time of the Jurassic Park Incident.

Unlike the originals, the T-rex clones have been known to see only movement due to the mixture of frog DNA.[1] Like all of InGen's theropods, the T-rex clones have pronated wrists. These clones run speeds up to 32 mph instead of 15-25 mph.
