T. rex more hyena than lion: Tyrannosaurus rex was opportunistic...

Feb 22, 2011 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Science Daily

ScienceDaily - The ferocious Tyrannosaurus rex has been depicted as the top dog of the Cretaceous, ruthlessly stalking herds of duck-billed dinosaurs and claiming the role of apex predator, much as the lion reigns supreme in the African veld.

Exactly. With all thise features it couldnt be purley a scavenger!!!!
i dont see how any animal that size could be pure scavenger, i cant even see something smaller like say a ceratosaurus being purely scavenger, animals that big need lots of food, far more than wat they could likely find dead

I use the word "hate" loosely, but I really hate Jack Horner in the world of paleontology. Its not that Tyrannosaurus wouldn't eat carrion if he got a chance (what predator wouldn't?) but in that program he did "Valley of the T-Rex" he gave literally no room for the idea that Tyrannosaurus was a hunter, even though it is almost CLEAR to me that he was.... Binocular vision, fast, smart by dinosaur standards, not to mention excellent sense of smell and a bone-crushing bite.... but yes, the title of this article is right, because just like anomonyous said, hyenas do most of the hunting on the Savannah, while it is the lions who often use their size and ferociousness to scare away the HYENAS. Then again I'd expect no more from Horner. I prefer Robert T. Bakker. Raptor Red was a good book.
Brilliant. It was obviously evolved as a predator. Thank you.

Any predator that relies on its eyesight to any degree will have binocular vision most of the time.
