Did You Know?
Fossil dinosaur bones are easily mistaken for rocks. One way to identify the bones is to touch them to your lower lip. The bones will stick to your lip and the rocks will fall off.
The largest meat-eating dinosaur was the Tyrannosaurus rex. This giant was first discovered in 1900 at Hell Creek, Montana. A T.rex could be up to 45 feet (13.7m) long and 20 feet (6m) tall and have a skull 5 1/2 feet (1.7 m) long.
