When we resurrect the T-Rex, those arms will be a delicacy.
Already saw it. PBS Eons should be in your subscribe list.
Those arms could benchpress 430lbs.
They’ll need marinading…
Very interesting and entertaining video. Re: the small arms, as strong as the arms still were, if you want incredibly strong jaws then the arm size & strength is going to suffer because they both use basically the same connecting points on the shoulder bones.
Who knew this video would be relevant in two different threads today!
Maybe T. Rex arms were what we call a spandrel—a byproduct of other evolutionary changes that doesn’t necessarily have a purpose or advantage of its own.
Sort-of like a kangaroo. Different gait and different lifestyle, but it gets along without the arms because it uses its tail. The arms are still used but probably not for life-critical stuff.
Now I want to see hopping T-Rexes.
Fortunately they’ll still be rubbish at boxing.
Frankly, I think T-Rex was the king tyrant and was always pissed off because he couldn’t masturbate.
Masturbation must have been a bitch.
I like this one better. A friend at work has this on her cubicle and every time I see it I chuckle.
Obviously the heat-proof apron didn’t preserve well:
OK, maybe not LIFE-critical…
“What’s with those tiny arms though?”
T stands for Trump?
I guess life, will find a way!
Was expecting something written in Rudyard Kipling style, Disappointed. Money back plz.
Tiny appendages. The link between T-Rex and T-Rump.
