Re: Thick Tyrannosaur Bones



With thick bones or dense bones, as you were all discussing about. This would give T.rex a lot of weight in its legs also, there long and powerful. T.rex having air sacs in its vertebrae, and the weight of its legs, it could have given T.rex a better depth in the water, enabling it not to topple over in water or even sink in the upper part of the body, although T.rex is body is pretty much wide enough than some theropods. Does theropods having Gastralia it could have help them to some degree while there lungs are submerged under water, would this link them to an acotic environment to some parts of there life? But, it does not say whether or not T.rex was indeed swimming with its legs close to its tail, or walking alone the bottom of a lake or river.
