Jurassic World is the fourth installment in the Jurassic Park film series. Steven Spielberg, director of the series’ first two films, will act as executive producer as he did for the third film.

Today, ten things you should know about a terrible Tyrannosaurus Rex:

1.- The species Tyrannosaurus rex (in Latin, ‘rex’ means ‘king’), is one of the most well-represented of the huge theropod dinosaurs.

2.- Commonly, Tyrannosaurus Rex is abbreviated to T-Rex.

3.- Tyrannosaurus was a bipedal carnivore with a massive skull balanced by a long tail.

4.- In 1915, Henry Fairfield Osborn, President of the American Museum of Natural History in New York, presented the first complete Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton. It stood in an upright pose for 77 years, until it was dismantled in 1992. A shame!

5.- They lived throughout what is now western North America, during the upper Cretaceous Period, from 68 to 66 million years ago.

6.- Fossils are found in a variety of rock formations. In fact, more than 50 specimens of Tyrannosaurus rex have been identified, some are nearly complete skeletons.

7.- Anyway, its taxonomy is still controversial. Some scientists consider Tarbosaurus Bataar from Asia to be a second species of the Tyrannosaurus.

8.- In 2010, a study from Currie, Horner, Erickson and Longrich has been put forward as evidence of cannibalism in the genus Tyrannosaurus.

9.- Tyrannosaur teeth could crush bone and extract food (bone marrow) from carcass remnants. Furthermore, their sense of smell was highly developed. They could sniff out carcasses over great distances, as modern vultures do.

10.- Definitely, it was a terrible hunter. Because they also had binocular vision as modern hawks.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you!

We cannot wait to watch Jurassic World film! And you?
