Hey, You, Banana Tooth!

NPR has reported that scientists at Oklahoma State University determined that the bite of a Tyrannosaurus rex could exert about 8,000 pounds of force on its prey. According to one of the scientists,
That's like setting three small cars on top of the jaws of a T. rex--that's basically what was pushing down.

A T. rex tooth was as long as a banana! Imagine the size of a toothbrush that would have been needed for proper dental care!

Kids have always been fascinated by T. rex and other dinosaurs and this is evident by our extensive collection of dinosaur books in the our children's section. Everything from picture books to musical CDs!
