  • The T. Rex had a Sensitive Aspect that has been Ignored by Scientists

Apparently, the T. Rex had a sensitive aspect that has been largely ignored by scientists. In their haste to label it as the most testosterone-laden among the list of dinosaurs they forgot that it had a delicate nature too.

The fossil remains of a new species of T. Rex were discovered by a group of experts. T. Rex as everyone knows is a very popular dinosaur. The fossils were unearthed from the mud swamps of the Montana River.

The facial bones of this creature were examined in detail. The scales on the face were such that they resembled a crocodile’s snout. This material was very sensitive and allowed for a great deal of sensation.

Tyrannosaurs had tiny arms. They thus couldn’t participate in their environment in the same manner as mammals did. Therefore to hunt for prey, build a shelter and look after the eggs and newly-hatched young members, they needed their heads and feet.

The new dinosaur that has been unearthed has been termed Daspletosaurus. The facial sensitivity of the T. Rex was similar to the tactile sensitivity we humans possess in our fingertips.

The new dinosaur has been named Daspletosaurus horneri or Horner’s Frightful Lizard. The “Horner” comes from the name of the paleontologist John Jack R. Horner. He was a curator at a museum.

The man discovered several fossils and was a legend of his times. Montana has many rocks exposed to the environmental conditions. Thus it is the ideal state where dinosaur fossils are found in plentiful supply.

Provided you know your territory, dinosaur fossils are something you will inevitably stumble upon. T. Rex was lipless as the research that has been done so far indicates.

The skin of the T. Rex on its face resembled the skin of crocodiles, birds and mammals. It was supersensitive and probably made the T. Rex a good lover in its mating habits as well.

The findings of this research got published in the Nature journal Scientific Reports.
