Scientists have long been wondering about the mystery of how the T-rex could reach such a large body size. There have been two theories: either the T-rex grew for a longer period of time than other dinosaurs, or it grew as long but a lot more. New research show the latter theory to be correct. Using a new method, american dinosaur scientists have found that T-rex had an extremely fast growth rate in its teenage years.

Interesting find Durden. As I understand it T-rex is starting to seem like it was warm blooded which would mean It grew alot faster then a cold blooded animal did. But would also mean it didnt live as long as cold blooded animals. Perhaps more toward the lifespan of a elephant rather then a alligator.

There was even a recent find of a bunch of T-rex found all at the same place of different ages which could suggest they lived in a pack like structure. As the bones were not found in a predator trap.

A pack of T-Rex now thats scary
