About 25 foot long, ten foot high; Three children discovered the fossil of this dinosaur, known as king of dinosaurs

fossil-

Three school children have discovered the billions of years old fossil of T-Rex or Tyrannosaurus Rex, a terrifying dinosaur. The incident took place on July 31, 2022 in North Dakota. The incident is described in a documentary that is about to be released.

In the Jurassic Park movies, actor Sam Neill, who played Dr Alan Grand, narrates the events in the documentary. Brothers Liam Fisher and Jesse Fisher, along with their cousin Kayden Madsen, made the surprising discovery while walking through the rocky Hell Creek area.

Liam was seven, Jesse was ten and Cayden was nine. They found the fossil embedded in the rocks. When they became suspicious, they took a picture of the bones and sent it to paleontologist Dr Tyler Lison. He identified it as a fossil of a baby T-Rex.

The fossil is of a T-Rex that died around 67 million years ago when it was 13 - 15 years old. It is believed to have weighed about 1,632 kilograms, was about 25 feet long and 10 feet high. T-Rex fossils of this age are extremely rare, so the discovery of the children was of great importance to the researchers.

It is hoped that this fossil will help us understand crucial information about the evolution of T-Rex, the king of dinosaurs. The fossil will be on display at the Denver Museum in the coming weeks.

The documentary will be released in Denver on June 21. The children say that their classmates do not believe them when they tell that they have found a dinosaur fossil and are waiting for the documentary to release.

T-Rex

T-rexes are considered to be the most ferocious dinosaurs ever known. T-Rex lived in the American continent. They were powerful predators. It is believed to be 20 feet tall. Velociraptor, Triceratops, Brachiosaurus and other dinosaurs of various genera also lived on earth.

A massive asteroid impact at the end of the Cretaceous period, about 66 million years ago, wiped off the dinosaurs from the earth. This asteroid impact is believed to have killed 75% of life on Earth.
