Apparently the T-Rex was not able to run.
A study by researchers at Manchester University has poured cold water on the popular image of the Tyrannosaurus Rex speeding after its prey.
Using biomechanical analysis techniques, the study has found that the giant predators leg bones would have buckled beneath it at running speed. The research, published on July 18 on PeerJ.com, was led by Prof William Sellers from Manchester Universitys School of Earth and Environmental Sciences. He said the results of the study showed that any running gaits for T rex would probably have led to unacceptably high skeletal loads. Credit: Manchester University via Storyful
