Sam’s field notes: Tyrannosaurus rex


Hello there! Sam here to tell you all about one of my favorite dinosaurs: Tyrannosaurus rex!

When I walked up to it I couldn’t believe how huge she is. I was staring at how big her legs were around, and I think that T-rex would have a hard time playing hide and seek. She probably wouldn’t be very good at tag either with her little arms….. I’d still play with her though, as long as she promised not to bite.

While I was thinking of playing tag all of a sudden T-rex roared! It was so loud it sounded like a lion, a huge airplane, and the loud noises my dad makes when his football team loses all in one! I wasn’t scared though – I’m tough. When her mouth was open and roaring I got to see all of her big sharp teeth. I think she could probably eat a lot of meat with those! My mom read a sign that said that T-rex teeth worked like a steak knife to cut up meat. I don’t think I’d like to invite her over for dinner though because mom also said the sign says that she eats more for dinner than my dad weighs.

I’m getting hungry now – I wonder if my mom will take me to the cafe for a hot dog?
