Expert clears up misconceptions about dinosaurs

Pity poor Tyrannosaurus rex. He may have been the carnivorous king of
his prehistoric jungle, but he lived no life of leisure.

Sure, he could have bitten a Buick in half, but forced to prey on herds
of fast-moving, vegetarian behemoths - and fight off his own
cannibalistic kind - he often died early, a battered, wreck of a
10,000-pound giant.
