Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 21, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta LETHBRIDGE September Ask Andy TYRANNOSAURUS REX Andy sends a complete 20- .olume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Bil- y White, age 10, of In- dianapolis, Indiana, for his question: Who was the king of the dinosaurs? In the days of the dinosaurs, went by the law of ic jungle. It was everyone for limself and the mightiest ighter was the winner. In this .ase, we might say that the .ing of the dinosaurs was the lightiest and most fearsome -iller of them all. At any rate, lis is what the scientists must have thought when they amed him Tyrannosaurus ex. which means ''the tyrant zard king.' Our modern elephant has a ng brain to match his bulky iody and so do our giant 'hales. Though none of the linosaurs were as big as our jig blue whale, many of them rere much bigger than ,'lephants. So one would ex- ;ct them to have sizeable trains to match their huge >odies But this was not so. Those monstrous reptiles had ary, very small brains, which leans that complicated ideas rere too much for them. One of our most com- ilicated ideas is sharing, the ive-and-take of living ieaceably together with roups of other persons. iiiman civilization is the Uory of social groups, nations kingdoms. But such ideas rere much too much for the aitsy brain of a dinosaur. Jvery dinosaur was on his wn, hunting or hunted by all ic others. Certainly they did not a certain dinosaur s their king, though no doubt ney feared the mightiest iller Actually, for reasons jnknown. the last of the huge eptiles died out some sixty million years ago. Scientists ave to piece their story igether from the fossilized (ones they left in the ground. luring the past century or so. 3 different types were un- arthed. they were given nodern scientific names. The word "dinosaur'' itself neans lizard They rere, of course, a lizard aranch of the coldblooded rep- ile clan. And because they ?ere enormously big. they eemed terrible. Besides, had fearsome meat- Bating teeth and others wore earsorne armor. Their modern scientific names iclude "bron- osaurus" and "plesiosaur." Each lancy name tells something about its long gone owner This name system was fine for the average dinosaurs. But one of them obviously was something special. He walked on two hind legs like tree trunks and stood twenty feet tall. Including his mighty tail, he was 50 feet long. His huge head measured four feet long and his enormous jaws were crammed with six-inch, dagger-sharp teeth. His total weight was up to ten tons, which is heavier than two In- dian elephants. Without a doubt, this dinosaur was the biggest, mightiest and most terrifying meat-eating animal that ever walked on the planet Earth. It seemed logical to call him the king of the dinosaurs, for no animal on earth could prevail against him So his scientific name is Tyrannosaurus Rex the tyrant lizard king. This mightiest of the mighty lizards lived during the Cretaceous period of earth's past, about 100 million years ago. This was toward the end ot the long dinosaur history story. The climate was mild and moist and a few reptiles took to the air. As the young Rocky Mountains grew. North America was populated with a vast variety of huge fantastic reptiles which were hunted without mercy by the so- called king of the dinosaurs.
