Hello Out there in internet land,
Yeah, this is Jessica speaking (for once!).

T. imperiallus reminds me of something I heard a long long time ago. I 
have a video on R. rex that I taped for a report, and the video stated 
that T. rex's original name way Dynamosaurus Imperiallus (don't quote me 
on the spelling) and that it was changed to T. rex because D... 
Imperiallus was Toooo long. 
T. imperiallus just sounds like another word for T. rex....
I'd take that '7 foot long skull' thing with a grain of salt,J.M.
