Sue the T-rex part 3 Sue the T-rex part 3
10th year. Sue is now a subadult. Measuring 10 meters long and weighing 4 tons, she is nearly the size of an adult T-rex. However, this morning, something happens that turns her world upside down. Her mother and father are roaring and snapping at her. She tries purring at them to be submissive. But to no avail. She leaves the pack, confused and bewieldered. Once young Tyrannosaurus reach a certain age, they are kicked out to form packs of their own. But first, Sue will have to be a lone hunter until she can attract a mate. Using her suberb sense of smell, she finds a kill in the uplands. A pair of Quetzalcoatalus are feeding. These enormous flying reptiles, last in the family of Pterosaurs, are 8 meters tall and have a 12 meter wingspan. They are feasting on a young Torosaurus, a relative of Triceratops. Herds of ceratopsians are common in the Creataceous, But Torosaurus, outcompeted by Triceratops, is being driven to ex

7 years later. Sue is now old enough to hunt with the pack. At 5 meters long and weighing 1 ton, she is the size of a fully grown Nanotyrannus, but small for a T-rex. Today, Sue and the pack are on a hunt. They walk to the edge of the forest to search for prey. At this era in geologic time, western North America looked like Florida. Forests bordered massive floodplains where herbivorious dinosaurs grazed on ferns. The climate is warm and tropical. But, lately, there's been a change. With the movement of the continents, a surge in volcanic activity has spread across the globe. In particular, a few in India in the future will become devastating. And the fall of the Western Interior Seaway is only adding to this problem. But for now, life carries on. Using their incredable sense of smell and forward facing eyes, they find a herd of Pachycephlosaurus. These 4.5 meter long, 900 pound herbivores are dangerous. Their huge domed
Confused Matthew improvementWell, I really did not want this to happen. Before you say anything, I want to say this. I do not hate Confused Matthew. I may dislike his reviews, but I do not hate him personally or for his opinions. I just want to give him constructive critisim he can take with a grain of salt and improve for the future. I feel that he has done things in his reviews that I can not personally stand. My biggest problem being manipulation of the film he talks about. In his Lion King 2 review, he edited a scene where the characters were talking and made it appear one wasn't answering the others question when he was. I feel this is a cheap, dishonest way to complain about said film. My other problem is he undermines his audience by speaking on there behalf like saying that WE do not like Simba when it should have been I. The audience may have different opinions than you and, to be a valid critic, it is important to understand this. And that falls into my next point whch is you insulting Roger Ebert and S
T-rex was a predator part 2Hey guys, Cryptonoah here. Now, you might be asking why I'm doing another part. Well, I found a few extra points I agree with. So, here we go:
Size - Tyrannosaurus rex was just too large to be able to rely on finding enough dead meat laying within walking distance.
Eyesight - This dinosaur had some of the most advanced vision in the dinosaur kingdom. A huge percentage of its brain is dedicated to its sense of vision. It also had highly advanced binocular vision which allowed it to judge distance and depth; both of which are important when you are chasing something. Why would an animal need incredible vision if all it was doing was eating dead thing?
Hearing - CT scanning shows that these dinosaurs had the ability to hear within a wide range of tones. This suggests that it is using its hearing to listen for the location of its prey. It did not need an acute sense of hearing to find something that was already dead. And if it was only using its hearing to listen to other members of its fa

South Dakota. 67 million years ago. A nest of dinosaur eggs lays in a forest clearing, incubated by rotting vegitation. But a nest raider is nearby. Troodon, a 2.4 metre, 110 lb omnivore. It eats both plants and meat and, on occasion, eggs. He plucks a cream colored egg and is about to eat it but, he notices a giant shadow looming over him. Tyrannosaurus Rex, a 13 meter, 6 ton carnivore. The dominant predator of the region. She snaps her jaws and roars atthe Troodon. The small dinosaur scurries into the bushes. The eggs are at the killers mercy. Fourtunately, this is their mother. Using her small but powerful arms, she places it back in the nest and covers it up. She must keep a constant vigil over the eggs.
3 days later, the eggs hatch. The mother uses her foot claws to free them from the nest. Throughout the series, we will be focused one hatchling called Sue. The mother walks off with her hatchlings in tow. The hatchli
