I was wondering how T.rex jaws went..
I mean, did the teeth overlap when the jaws were closed? Or did they line up
like human teeth do, with the one row resting ontop of the other?

T.rex had quite an overbite, as most people have already mentioned on the list. But most of the time, it's teeth were partially covered by it's lips. As Greg Paul writes in PDW: "These lips could be lifted to bare the teeth in a threatening gesture, or lowered to help cover the teeth when the mouth was closed (97)."
