Ask anyone to name the first dinosaur that they can think of and it will more than likely be the great T-Rex.
Brandishing the logo of a T-Rex upon a t-shirt especially if it was created with the illusion of a 3D effect and perhaps even with the T-Rex sporting a pair of 3D glasses would create a fearsome yet humorous design.
Living in the late cretaceous period the T-Rex was a formidable creature who did not have any known predators. The name Rex literally means King in Latin which is why the T-Rex is quite often referred to as ‘king of the dinosaurs’.
A fact that not many know about the T-Rex was that there was a lot of controversy surrounding the way in which it fed. Some scientists believed that he was a scavenger and therefore ate carrion that other dinosaurs had killed due to little wear on the fossilised teeth that were recovered. Others however, argued that because of the fact that theropods can replace their teeth quite quickly that these could have been newer teeth at the time of fossilisation and believe it hunted for food. However, if we look at examples of predators today then it can be quickly recognised that they would not be averse to stealing another animal’s kill which was believed to also be true of the T-Rex. Ever since first discovered scientists have been convinced that the T-Rex was a renowned predator.
In 1993 Steven Spielberg released his blockbuster film ‘Jurassic Park’ which had a Tyrannosaur as the main nemesis of the film who continuously pursued the main characters throughout relentlessly. However, in actual fact some of the dinosaurs featured in the film would have lived thousands of years apart from each so would never have lived at the same time. The film took this into account by having the story of the eggs being created in a lab which meant that any dinosaur could be reproduced. If this was to happen in reality though there is no imagining how they would co-exist with each other or humans. There is one fact that would remain apparent if dinosaurs were brought to the 20th century and that is that man would no longer be at the top of the food chain and therefore the hunter would become the hunted.
If the above scenario happened then brandishing a t-shirt that bore a T-Rex picture would be last thing on someone’s mind as they would possibly be running for their life from one instead. There would be no place that was entirely safe even at home as dinosaurs weighed tonnes and would easily be able to bring down a house if they chose to. Even the ocean was filled with dinosaurs such as the Megalodon which would have been able to swallow a human whole and still have room for more.
We are lucky that dinosaurs are not on the planet today as everything we know and all the routines we partake in would be meaningless in comparison to the danger we would face each day.
