The T-rex, everyone's favourite dinosaur?
Did you know?
The name Tyrannosaurus Rex comes from Greek and Latin words meaning ‘Tyrant Lizard King’.
The T. Rex roamed the planet during the late Cretaceous Period 65 million years ago, in what’s now the USA and Canada.
Only very few living things turn into fossils once they die, as a very special set of circumstances are needed for fossilisation to occur. Often dinosaur fossils are found near lakes and oceans as covered their remains in mud and silt. Others were washed into a river by heavy rain. Once remains are buried under sediment, their decomposition slows down due to a lack of oxygen, giving enough time for fossilisation to occur. For this reason, we do not know a lot about the dinosaurs that lived away from water- for example in jungles- as fossils are highly unlikely to form in these climates.
