Is the War ending?

In the recent days, the sudden lack of action taken by both side have left onlooker puzzled. Is the war over?

It started with an incredible counterattack from the Tyrannosaur fans after a few strikes from the raptor fans. This was followed up by another incredible mutinational push spearheaded by a person know as Myojo, which oragnized an incredible japanese voting frenzy. South East asian action was undertaken by a few elite voters. The american also provided the second biggest armoured punch.

After the invasion, anti Tyrannosaur activities on the other side has fallen. Is this a sign of the raptor losing? Is the war going to bo over soon?

Only time will tell.

how can anyone like Tyrannosaurus????? Some of you cannot even spell it correctly. Okay it is not the worst dinosaur, but it is near it. Parasauroluphus rocks because it can make really cool sounds with it's head and can swim even though it spent most of it's time on land. That story about "Razorclaw" and the velocirapters is stuu-pid!!!!! For one, Utahraptor and Velociraptor lived in totally different times/places. How could a Utahraptor get transported back in time to a whole different part of the world????????
from russell p, age ****, seattle, wa, usa; November 27, 2000


Faster? Based on what?
based on the countless number of books I've seen that describe them as being
"built for speed"

Dromaeosaurs have just about the shortest and
> broadest tibiae and metatarsals of the nonavian theropods. Tyrannosaurids
> have the longest and most slender tibiae and metatarsals for any theropod in

>their size range. On top of that, tyrannosaurids have some nice

>shock-abosrbing potential in their feet. All other things being equal, a

>tyrannosaurid should be expected to cover more ground per unit time (aka,

>speed) than a dromaeosaurid of the same size. >>

this would make tyrannosaurids among the fastestest of its time for its size,
and definitely faster than its prey.
This supports my original claims , that there is nothing to prove that
Dromaeosaurs
were seemingly better (or more efficient) hunters

from FD, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


A pack of five Velociraptors jumped from the ancient rock in a ritual test of strength and dominance. Lunging forward, they breathed heavily as the crumbling rocks echoed below them. A large ferocious T-Rex came out of nowhere and attacked one of the Velociraptors, forcing it down with its weight and deadly jaws. Two of the younger Velociraptors retreated to safety.Even the mighty pack of Velociraptors are no match for the monsterous T-Rex. The battle was won and the " Tyrant Prince" forced the pack of Raptors back to their fossilized grave.

T-Rex rules!

from DW, age 14, Singapore!, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


At last. I won't put up arguments on which dinosaur is better, but I'd like to tell you that it was the rise of Tyrannosauids that put the raptors out of a job. The decline of the raptors have been noted by a rise of the Tyrannosauids. I'd prefer you use facts to argue, instead of simply lamblasting the other dinosaur. But as a paleontologist born in raptor mania, I still have to tell you that it dosen't look too good for the raptors now.

Raptor mania refers to a period of time where the raptors were all the rage. Raptor fans were at their peak there. But now, as doubts and misconceptions started to surface and be addressed, the raptors have fallen out of favour. Compair the amount of raptor votes last time to now and you will notice that the number of raptor fans are falling...you are going extinct. Enough of this, here's one for big rex.
from Jeff Poling, age 26, ?, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


Razorclaw the poor Utahraptor

There had been a great storm and a raptor chick had been left behind. It was Utahraptor chick. It had been found by a family of Velociraptors and was raised by them (for some weird reason). The Velociraptors saw how big the Utahraptor chick was when it was full grown and realized that it was not an ordinary Velociraptor chick. The Velociraptors had taken Razorclaw (that was the name of the raptor chick) on a hunt but a Tyrannosaurus had come for the freshly-killed Tenotosaur carcass and was about to attack the Velociraptor family. Then with surprising speed, Razorclaw jumped up and with one swipe of his claw sliced empty air.The Tyrannosaur roared and caught the young Utahraptor midair, smashing down with 15,000 pounds of force. A red mist shot into the air as the Razorclaw's back broke. The Tyrannosaur contuined to put pressure on, cutting Razorclaw into two even as the last rasping breath escaped his puntured lungs. The Tyrannosaurus shook its head and flung the stringy rema! ins of the dead Utahraptor all over the place. THe Velociraptor family shierked in fright and ran away at their top speed, which was about 40 miles per hour.

The family was back at their cave, inside which they took shelter in the rain, and they were very sad. Their son Razorclaw had brought it so quickly. They mourned his ignorance at attacking a Tyrannosaur. Sudden;y, somethign blocked the light into the cave, it was the Tyrannosaur back for more. The Velociraptors, determined to take revenge for Razorclaw, scrambled up to attack, trying to run rings around the Tyrannosaur, but the Tyrannosaur was blessed with unnaturally fast reactions; it caught the mother Velociraptor even before she managed to doge and threw her mangled body back. A small raptor chick jumped onto the Tyrannosaur, hoping to slash the monster's guts out, but the Tyrannosaur leaned against the wall of the cave, turning him to a ugly red paste on the wall, like an oversized smashed bug. The father Velociraptor screamed as he saw the Tyrannosaur kill his family...it has been this way for years, the Tyrannosaurs stole all their kills, ate their childern and there was no way to stop them. Infact, the number of the Tyrannosaurs seemed to be rising while the number of raptors were decreasing...

Searing pain snapped him out of his thoughts, white light flashed before his eyes before he realized he was being lifed bodily into the air. His next sensation was that of weightlessness before he slammed hard onto the mangled body of his mate. He felt his body fold into two like a rag raptor-doll and heard his back snap. In the slow motion of accident victims, he saw the Tyrannosaur kill his family. All his efforts to reproduce has come to nothing, the last though he formed was how he wished he hadn't declared war on the Tyrannosaurs by stealing and killing their young, now he faced the consquences.. Extinction
from Bob Eoj, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


The raptors scan the clearing from the cover of their hiding place within the monkey puzzle forest. The raptors is a beautiful predator, with switchblades claws designed to tear the life out of their victim. Long, dexterous hands allow them to work their prey into a killing bite. Strong swift legs allow them to sprint up to 40 miles per hour. Some species of raptors hunt in packs while some stake it out alone, but for the prey here, the raptors are of considerable size (3-4meters), and they hunt in packs.

The prey in question here is a male Anatotitan, 12 meters long an weighing 6 tons. The Anatotitan can crush the life out of a unwary lone raptor, but in a pack, the hardosaur's best defence is in a herd. Unluckly for this Anatotitan, it had somehow gotten seperated from its herd eariler in a Tyrannosaur attack. Usually the male, being in good health and of considerable size, would deter predators looking for a easy target, but the raptors are unusual as they readily attack even the strongest prey.

Rushing out of the undergrowth, the alpha raptor approaches the herbivore. The Anatotitan brays in alarm and rears up to deter the alpha raptor. The alpha raptor stops and hisses at the Anatotitan. The Anatotitan has little to fear from the alpha raptor as his immenese bulk deters an attack.

That is, until the rest of the pack burst out into the clearing behind the Anatotitan. Raptors do not plan their attack, but an entire pack may stalk the prey and surround it until the alpha raptor attacks. This triggers a free for all in which the raptors attack their prey en masse. The Anatotitan is heavily outnumbered and brays in fear and pain as they leap onto his thick hide and start kicking into him. He bucks and rears in a vain attempt to dislodge the predators but the fight is as over as soon as it begins. The Anatotitan collaspes in a spray of arterial blood and the raptors are quick to end his fight for survival in their favour.

An Anatotitan is a big kill, and a big kill may feed them for days. However, they must also defend their kill sucessfully during that period. Without wasting time, they start to eat the colossal body of their prey.

Bursting out of the undergrowth in thundering steps, a male Tyrannosaurus Rex roars and stamps his feet ten meters away from the kill. Usually a Tyrannosaurus moves around quietly while stalking a kill, but his intention this time is to intimidate. His does a good job at it, roaring and pretending to charge. His mission is obvious, he wants their kill.

Usually, a raptor pack would have withdrawn in such a situtation, but this raptor pack is a big pack, and the alpha raptor senses that his pack is big enough to have a chance of beating the Tyrannosaurus in a fight. However, attacking a Tyrannosaur is dangerous, even a pack will certainly take heavy losses if they decide to take on the Tyrannosaur. For a moment, the entire pack joins the alpha raptor in hissing and snarling at the Tyrannosaur in a tense stalemate.

Suddenly, a female Tyrannosaur charges out of the monkey puzzle forest in a ear-splitting roar. She is bigger than the male Tyrannosaur and thus more intimidating. This is no coincidence, Tyrannosaurus breed by pair-bonding, and this is certainly the first Tyrannosaurus' mate.

The alpha raptor is distracted by the noisy female and fails to notice he is now standing less than three meters from the first Tyrannosaur. The Tyrannosaur senses this and siezes the raptor in a sudden blur of movement. The raptor squeals in surprise and pain. It kicks out vainly at the giant predator and one bite ends the life of the doomed animal.

Seeing the death of their leader, the resolve of the raptor pack breaks and they bolt. The female Tyrannosaur sees to this , chasing them into the forest before turning back. She waits a while before confirming that the raptors really are gone before giving a series of short, sharp burplike barks.

The undergrowth starts to move as three 4 meter long animals move out. They are young Tyrannosaurus, offspring of the pair. Aready they have the bone cruching teeth of their parents but are yet too small and inexperienced to bring down live prey, they learn by watching their parents. For now, they start to tear at the flesh of the dead Anatotitan with their mother. The male has his own with the mangled raptor. Quickly, they feed.

The tyrannosaurs are a sucess story. Over the years, their numbers have been steadily increasing while other predators, like the raptors are declining. It is aready clear that they have now replaced all other raptor and carnosaur ecological niches. Even eons after the dinosaurs went extinct, their sucess contuines as more and people send votes for them. I am not different. THis vote goes out to T.Rex.

This crisis has reached flashpoint. Please, as the chairman of the Offical Raptor Fan club, UK, our rules states that all people orn to like raptors are raptor fans. Raptor fans have a great responsibility in upholding the paleontological truth. Jimmy is a member of this association because he did not insult Tyrannosaurus the way you did. Paul, you have gone too far. Go any further and you will let us down.

Martin, you have also violated the raptor fan code. Stop this war of the words now and we might consider letting you in.

Paul, you are wrong, Velociraptor was closer to the birds, therefore it should be the king of chickens, not T-rex. T-rex is the king of dinosaurs.

We now know T-rex wasn't pretty rare, but was often seen. Because of now, we have found more than 30 fossils, putting it into the "often seen" range. T-rex wasn't particually dumb either. Go ask Horner and Bakker. T-rex was actually quite bright and fast. Not to mention its eagle eyesight and super nose. You really should back your claims wth facts you know. T-rex was anything but weak. He was built like a tank. He could survive Ankylosaur blows, Triceratops slashes and bites from other T-rexes, something that would have killed your lously raptors long before.

from Flamebird, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


For all of you T-Rex lovers, i'm a ex-raptor fan here to write your paragraphs. While T-Rex is not my favorite dinosaur, i can attest to why all of you love this animal so much. The very mention of T-Rex implies power. This animal was built to take down the large herbivors of its time. The bite pressure of T-Rex was extraordinary! Crocs today exert 3000 lbs of pressure per square inch. Now imagine a Rex's bite pressure, who has a jaw larger and much more powerful than a crocs. The teeth capitalize on this ability. They are not extremely sharp, but they are serated and strong. A Rex does not slash flesh with his teeth, he crushes it. When he bites, the teeth and pressure combination breaks bones and severs muscles and tendons deep within the victim. Imagine the power it takes to crack the spine of a Triceratops, thats what T-Rex does. Power does not only exist in the jaws, but in the whole animal. Even the small arms are strong. Each arm(which are about as long as one of ours) was estimated to lift 400lbs. Few of us can bench 400lbs with one arm. The legs of T-Rex were built like a locomotive. The femurs were extremely thick and had huge muscles attached. Rex could probably reach a speed of 30 miles per hour, more than enough to catch the large herbivors of its day if it had to. This whole animal was a power house. To find out more info, including what i have mentioned here, read "The Complete T-Rex" by John Horner, and depending on your age read "The Dinosaur Hereises" by Robert Bakker. Then you to can defend why you love T-Rex so much and amaze your opponents at the sametime

Now we know why everybody thinks the raptors stink!

You guys are living in the past man, now paleontologist agree that Tyrannosaurus wasa the better predator because it drove the raptors into decline. They suspect that the rise of Tyrannosaurus had something to do with the decline of the raptors. We have paleontologists to back us up, what do you have? You childish little brains! T.rex rules!

We Chinese are very enamoured with dinosaurs, the problem is most of us are poor and cannot afford computers. Actually, Tyrannosaurus Rex is immenesly popular in China and Taiwan, prehaps even more popular than all the popularity of all the other dinosaurs put together in america.

Who would like the tiny and puny raptor? Nobody would. Stand here and shout the world moves ahead you raptor fans.

Tyrannosaurus Rex because he one of the largest carnivore ever. Over 40ft long and teeth the size of bannanas, it was the king of its time. It was one of the last of the dinosaurs. He's "Da Bomb!!!!!"
from Alec F, age 14, Fresno, CA, USA; November 27, 2000


Listen up V. Raptor fans! And Giganotosaurus fans... I've been scrolling through the Earlier Dinosaur Favorites and I've been noticing that there have been a lot more V. Raptor votes, and to my distaste, they were saying things against my favorite dino, T-rex. Now, let's see. If V. Raptor and T-rex met, first of all, V. Raptor wouldn't want to face him. T-rex is such a large, powerful predator in comparison to V. Raptor. The smaller dino would probably back down unless she had her pack behind her. This is where its a more even battle. V. Raptor is smarter, swifter, and sharper clawed than T-rex. Using its brain, the smart raptors would create a plan. One raptor would distract the Tyrannosaur while the others came from behind and did the killing. But, because T-rex has such a great sense of smell, he would probably smell the raptors behind him and kill them. If he killed the head hauncho V. Raptor the others would not know what to do and get their arses wacked would not want to face the large predator. Therefore, the win would belong to the enormous Tyrannosaur.

from Lt. Harmon R. Junior, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


I've already voted in my favorite dinosaur, but I was hoping I would be allowed to post why I think T-rex is so popular. While we now know it wasn't the biggest carnivorous dinosaur, for decades it has held that title, and a newly discovered specimen might just win it back. It has a great name ("tyrant lizard king") and is one of the few dinos with a "nickname". Giganotosauruus and Carcharodontosaurus are awfully long. Also, it lived in North America, and literally once roamed our backyards (at least in the case of USA and CAN). More scientific reasons it SHOULD be popular are that it was more closely related to birds than the carnosaurs, was more likely to have had feathers or proto-feathers at some point in its life, and, judging by its affinities with the troodonts and the ostrich dinos, was probably much faster and smarter than the more primitive carnosaurs. Also, I'll admit, it's better known, but if someone wants to try and change that they sh! ould write a book featuring another dinosaur. (As was the case of Velociraptor.) Being old school, though, I'm glad to see the classics haven't died
from Mary N, age 16, ?, ?, USA; November 27, 2000


I started to liked dinosaurs when I was 3. Since then, I my knowledge of dinosaurs grew. I heard and read about many dinosaurs. And my favourite dinosaur is T-Rex! Although some bigger dino predator have been found, none is more specialised to be a bone crunching killing machine like T-Rex. T-Rex evolved from a long line of successful dino predators. T-Rex. Tyrant Ruler. The name tells you all about T-Rex

Good morning.

Good morning. In just a few hours from now, all of you will be voting on this webpage. In will be the single largest verbal conflict in the history of Tyrannosaurus ever.

Tyrannosaurus eh? Word should have a new meaning for all of us today. We cannot be divided by our petty differences anymore.

Prehaps, there is a certain irony that today is the 21st of November. We are not fighting against persecution, tyranny or opression, but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live.

And if we win the day, the 27 of November will be known as the day where the Tyrannosaur fans stood together, shoulder to shoulder and declared in ONE voice! We will not give up without a fight! We will not go quietly without a fight! May our heads be held high until the very last moment! We will not die! We will survive!

Today.

We celebrate, our independence day!

Dear Zoom Dinosaurs,

They just cannot accept the facts and get on with life. It's a sad state of affairs. With people like them, that's why the Al Gore side still wants to contend the title of president.

Tyrannosaurus, because he is one of the few dinosaurs we actually bother to use the whole name for. "Tyrannosaurus Rex" that sounds good.
from Shian Wen, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 27, 2000


Now how about the raptors? Those pack hunting, meat eating dinosaurs would have easily overpowerd a Tyrannosaur right, using their sickle claws? Well, bad news. New studies have shown that Raptors did not have very strong muscles in their toe claws. They could swing it yes, but not powerfully, meaning they could scratch, but not slash with it.

While we used to imagine the Mesozoic world as a landscape of sluggish swampdwellers, we now envision a world populated by a panoply of colorful, noisy, fast and cunning hot-blooded monsters. This is great for the Dinobiz, but does it make scientific sense? Did Dinosaurs operate under rules of physiology and evolutionary pressure substantially different from those of today? Did they develop markedly better solutions for dealing with their world than those that have evolved since? Let's look at the currently hot group, Dromaeosaurs, popularly known today as the Raptors. In movies, books and magazines these smallish theropods comprised the fastest and nastiest, and possibly smartest Dinosaurs ever. They were dressed to the nines in spikes and knives; cold-blooded homeothermic killers. While all members of this class had an impressive set of saw-edged teeth and formidably clawed forelimbs, it is the hypertrophied claws on the second toes of their hindlimbs that have transfixed our imagination. We are repeatedly told that these agile carnivores hunted in packs, slashing their large but lumbering prey to death in a series of back-foot blitzkriegs. Wait...does this really make sense? Did they really hunt in organized packs? Did they really use those curvaceous claws for slicing and dicing formidable foes into hors-d'ouvres sized snacks? I suspect it was more likely they rarely ate anything that couldn't have been nailed in a one-bite solo effort unless it was already dead. Heresy!!? Stop and consider this from an evolutionary standpoint. As Raptors were lightly built, they probably did rely on speed and agility. As they were bipedal, their back legs would have been essential to their survival. Almost any injury to such important structures would have been rapidly fatal to a creature relying on pursuit speed and kicking power. Want to hurt a back leg? Try to kick a large and angry herbivore that basically consists of thick skin over huge muscles. Ribs, pelvic bones, scutes, shields and flailing limbs would have made vital organs difficult targets. Aside from the likely humiliation of breaking a nail, they would have been at high risk for shattering a leg trying such tactics. Crippled dinosaurs didn't have a high likelihood of reproducing, leaving them losers in Darwin's evolutionary derby. Perhaps that is why they vanished by the mid-Cretaceous, giving way to the smash-mouth hunting tactics of the Tyrannosaurs. It is more likely that Raptors mostly used their razor-like teeth on smaller prey. If they did use claws, it was probably the impressive armament on their forelimbs which would have been much easier to control and less risky to survival if injured. So, what were those carpet cutters for? If there had to be a feeding function, consider other possibilities. They would have been useful for cutting through thick skin after their meal h! ad been immobilized by other means. They could have been used to rip aprt termite nest s and beehives, or to dig up whatever resembled prairie dog towns of their era. If they had a taste for escargot, the claws were perfectly shaped for extracting the delicate morsels from their spiral shells.

I'm certain that every reader who has put up with me this far is thinking about the famous Velociraptor versus Protoceratops fossil where both died locked in mortal combat, proving the function of the slashing claw. Yes, the poor Raptor was using its foot, but probably as a defensive weapon! After all, it was probably trying to raid a nest for a meal of one-bite babies when it was attacked by one of those angry herbivores alluded to above. The large slashing claw on the cassowary is a good example of such a weapon evolving purely for defensive purposes. These birds are incredibly dangerous when trapped in close quarters although they are more likely to run away than take chances with their valuable legs in a battle. It makes sense to risk an incapacitating injury only if the alternative is being eaten.

If you are uncomfortable with these magnificent structures solely serving a protective function, what could be a more likely use? Why, sex of course. Many of the most extravagant and bizarre structures in nature are primarily used to attract a mate or to intimidate rivals. A set of large claws could be very useful for displaying to a potential mate or for ritualized combat. Look at the modern rooster, possessing impressive and dangerous spurs, but hardly famed as a fierce hunter.

While difficult to prove either way, it is easier to imagine Raptors having the coordination required for mating displays than the control needed for accurately kicking an opponent in a life or death battle. Despite their reputation for having relatively large brains, it is unlikely that such complex coordination would have been possible. No other animal has developed that style of hunting since, even if birds grab smaller prey with their feet and many animals do use their feet for defensive functions. While on the subject of brain function, I have to add that the concept of Raptors hunting in organized packs inspires incredulity. No reptile, or bird for that matter possesses the social structure to accomplish that and it is doubtful that Dinosaurs with relatively small brain-to-body mass ratios could have pulled it off. Swarming on common prey is observed with many animals including crocodilians, large lizards and vultures, although it isn't truly cooperative social behavior.! ! ! Finding fossils showing a group of Deinonychus with one large herbivore certainly doesn't prove or even imply social structure any more than finding a collection of flies around a dead rat.

Little evidence of the raptors' seemingly formidible behaviour have been found, yet there is so much hype. Even many paleontologists got sucked into this lie.

The end is near for all raptor fans.

No raptor pack would have attack a T-rex with full conviction. In fact, as the lion of the dinosaur world, Tyrannosaurus regulary took the lazy path by forcing other harder working dinosaurs (like the a raptor pack) to leave their kills. The raptor pack could attack, yes, but probally stood the chanch of grevious injury.(T-REX can certanly kill any raptor save for Utaraptor with one bite) But then again, many people have a misconcepton of T-Rex as a solitary hunter. Recently found evidence have shown that T-Rexes did hunt in a pack, like the raptors. This isnt really surprising for the Rexes arent really that different from the raptors, they both came from the same line. Lastly, T-rex was superior cos it was the better survior, by the time T-Rex had appeared, most of the raptors and the all of the so called super Allosaurs like Gigantosaurus are aready fossils. So in the end, T-Rex was a better and more advanced dinosaur.

Razorclaw the poor Utahraptor

There had been a great storm and a raptor chick had been left behind. It was Utahraptor chick. It had been found by a family of Velociraptors and was raised by them (for some weird reason). The Velociraptors saw how big the Utahraptor chick was when it was full grown and realized that it was not an ordinary Velociraptor chick. The Velociraptors had taken Razorclaw (that was the name of the raptor chick) on a hunt but a Tyrannosaurus had come for the freshly-killed Tenotosaur carcass and was about to attack the Velociraptor family. Then with surprising speed, Razorclaw jumped up and with one swipe of his claw sliced empty air.The Tyrannosaur roared and caught the young Utahraptor midair, smashing down with 15,000 pounds of force. A red mist shot into the air as the Razorclaw's back broke. The Tyrannosaur contuined to put pressure on, cutting Razorclaw into two even as the last rasping breath escaped his puntured lungs. The Tyrannosaurus shook its head and flung the stringy remains of the dead Utahraptor all over the place. THe Velociraptor family shierked in fright and ran away at their top speed, which was about 40 miles per hour.

The family was back at their cave, inside which they took shelter in the rain, and they were very sad. Their son Razorclaw had brought it so quickly. They mourned his ignorance at attacking a Tyrannosaur. Sudden;y, somethign blocked the light into the cave, it was the Tyrannosaur back for more. The Velociraptors, determined to take revenge for Razorclaw, scrambled up to attack, trying to run rings around the Tyrannosaur, but the Tyrannosaur was blessed with unnaturally fast reactions; it caught the mother Velociraptor even before she managed to doge and threw her mangled body back. A small raptor chick jumped onto the Tyrannosaur, hoping to slash the monster's guts out, but the Tyrannosaur leaned against the wall of the cave, turning him to a ugly red paste on the wall, like an oversized smashed bug. The father Velociraptor screamed as he saw the Tyrannosaur kill his family...it has been this way for years, the Tyrannosaurs stole all their kills, ate their childern and there was no way to stop them. Infact, the number of the Tyrannosaurs seemed to be rising while the number of raptors were decreasing...

Searing pain snapped him out of his thoughts, white light flashed before his eyes before he realized he was being lifed bodily into the air. His next sensation was that of weightlessness before he slammed hard onto the mangled body of his mate. He felt his body fold into two like a rag raptor-doll and heard his back snap. In the slow motion of accident victims, he saw the Tyrannosaur kill his family. All his efforts to reproduce has come to nothing, the last though he formed was how he wished he hadn't declared war on the Tyrannosaurs by stealing and killing their young, now he faced the consquences..

Dino Hunter Phil Currie's vision of tyrannosaurs is horrifying: Packs of monsters that stayed together to slay together, Joe Bob, a reknowned paleontologist says you are WRONG!

by Josh F.

"For many years we lacked any information about the behavior of tyrannosaurs and other big carnivores," says Currie, relaxing on top of one of the many ridges in the badlands of south-central Canada. (Michael Sexton) To understand why Phil Currie stands shaking on top of a ridge in a desolate Canadian wilderness, contemplating whether to drag himself to the next ridge hundreds of yards away and risk dying of dehydration or to turn back, you need to know only one scene from his childhood: He is six years old, sitting at the kitchen table. He opens a box of Rice Krispies and out plops a plastic dinosaur. Imagination shifts into high gear and the rest of little Phil's life is defined in a moment by creatures that have never been seen by humans. "I was hooked," he says. "They were real. They weren't mythology. They were the biggest, the strongest, the fastest."

So that is why he is here, in Alberta's badlands, with the temperature pushing above 105, shading his eyes against the searing sun with one hand and thrashing at blackflies with the other, studying the desolate landscape of fissured earth.

He opens a leather satchel and pulls out a photograph taken by another fossil hunter nearly 90 years earlier. He looks at the ridge, looks at the photo, looks at the ridge. "You shouldn't do it," he mutters to himself. "That's just nuts. You should go back to camp." Indeed the rest of his group, including his wife, had turned back hours ago.

"For about 15 minutes I kept talking to myself," he remembers. " 'Should I do it? Should I not do it?' I finally decided I had to try." Currie believed the ridge ahead was worth the risk because it might be the site of a nearly forgotten treasure trove of dinosaur bones. And those old fossils could bolster his theory that two-footed carnivores like Tyrannosaurus rex and Albertosaurus traveled in packs, with fleet youngsters driving prey into the powerful jaws of waiting adults.

Joined by his trusted sheltie, Seven, Currie studies an aerial photograph during a return visit to the badlands site where he unearthed ten albertosaurs of various ages. (Michael Sexton)

"Most people have thought of carnivores, especially the big ones, as solitary animals," Currie says. "The idea of ten or so tyrannosaurs coming at you at once is much more scary than thinking about just one. Not so much because of the adults but because of the juveniles. They would have been fast, nasty little animals."

Currie theorizes that lean-and-mean Albertosaurus youngsters cornered prey for their voracious but relatively slow-footed elders. (Alfred T. Kamajian)

Perhaps Currie's vision was prompted by the fact that he himself is so nimble. At 50, he still delights in planting his hiking boots at the top of a 100-foot, 60-degree sandstone slope and skiing down in a cloud of dust. And he is relentless, a hardened adventurer who always goes on to the next ridge. "Phil is driven," says Bruce Naylor, director of the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller, Alberta, where Currie is a staff paleontologist. Currie's wife, paleobotanist Eva Koppelhus, sums him up with one word: determined.

"I love the detective aspect of trying to understand something that isn't around anymore," he says. "And when you suffer some of these, well, hardships--sun, heat, rain, bugs, cold--you have a better appreciation for life." Particularly forms of life that vanished eons ago.

Long drawn to tyrannosaurs "because they were so dynamic and came in many varieties," Currie is perfectly located in the badlands that stretch from Alberta down through Montana and Wyoming. The area is prime ground for fossil hunters seeking tyrannosaurs, including the 40-foot-long, seven-ton T. rex and the slightly smaller Albertosaurus. The region was also once home to the sharp-clawed and birdlike Velociraptors, ostrich mimics such as Ornithomimus, and duck-billed plant eaters called hadrosaurs.

Most tyrannosaur skeletons recovered over the years from the badlands have been found in isolation, reinforcing the traditional view that they were solitary hunters or scavengers. To prove otherwise, Currie needed to find a site offering clues to interaction among tyrannosaurs, which is why he tried to find that elusive next ridge, the one paleontologist Barnum Brown had walked along back in 1910.

Brown, dubbed Mr. Bones by newspaper reporters early in the century, had discovered the first known Tyrannosaurus rex in 1902. On one of many expeditions sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History in New York, Brown followed the Red Deer River through the Alberta badlands and opened a small quarry on the side of a ridge. There he collected several bones from what he described as young tyrannosaurs and ostrich mimics. He intended to return to the quarry, but farther downstream he happened upon an area littered with so many dinosaur bones it kept him occupied for years to come. That fossil-hunting ground, now known as Dinosaur Provincial Park, is the source of many of the dinosaur skeletons in various museum collections around the world.

During a visit to the New York museum's collections in 1996, Currie rummaged through the basement in search of bones Brown had collected at the abandoned quarry. "Brown said he'd collected both juvenile tyrannosaurs and some ornithomimids," he says. "We don't have a lot of juvenile material, so I was pretty interested." Currie did not expect to be surprised. "I pulled open one tyrannosaur drawer and said, 'Hey, these aren't tyrannosaurs! They're ornithomimids.' Then I compared them with bones in another drawer and realized, 'No, these are actually baby tyrannosaurs!''' Although the two groups of animals are related, the ostrich-mimic bones are smaller, and the jaws lack teeth--a feature no tyrannosaur would be without.

More interesting, there were grown-up tyrannosaurs as well as youngsters. The mixture opened up possibilities. There was the chance, with a group of beasts, to learn about something that had been difficult for paleontologists to get a handle on: social lives. Activity, unlike bones, doesn't fossilize, but if the beasts died together, they may have lived together as well, and Currie thought he had a chance to dig up some clues about group interactions. "I just knew Brown couldn't have excavated all the remains and that there must be more," Currie says. "So I knew we had to find the site."

Unfortunately, Mr. Bones didn't leave much for Currie to go on. "Brown wasn't very good at keeping field notes, and he was exceptionally bad that year," Currie says. "He'd lost his wife to scarlet fever just before he went into the field, so he wasn't really concentrating."

Currie did have two photographs. One was of the camp. And the other was of the site itself. There were also some vague descriptions in letters Brown had sent to Henry Fairfield Osborn, his boss at the museum. "My dear Professor Osborn," Brown had scrawled on some notepaper with museum letterhead. "We are camped at last for about a week about 40 miles above Fox Coulee. . . . We have taken four good hind limbs and lots of caudal vertebrae [tailbones] and some jaw material of Albertosaurus. . . . "

By the summer of 1997, Currie and Koppelhus were ready to go. They had arranged a trip down the Red Deer with the Dinamation International Society, a nonprofit exhibition, research, and education company. The company supplied a dozen or so volunteers, rubber rafts, tents, and food. On August 1 the expedition started at a site called Content Bridge, 60 miles northwest of Drumheller. And they began to float downstream, looking at the banks.

On the fourth day, they found remnants of the campsite where Brown had moored his tent-covered barge by the riverside. Near a place called Dry Island Buffalo Jump, where a century or so ago the natives had driven buffalo off cliffs, expedition members spotted an area that looked just like the old photo. A poplar grove had grown taller, but otherwise the profile of the hills matched. Put Brown's barge next to the bank and the scene could easily have been from 1910. "It's funny," says Currie, "but even after 80 years the main ridge hills don't change that much."

The discovery raised hopes of finding the ridge with the abandoned bone bed. During their years in the badlands, Currie and Koppelhus have become adept at spotting old digs. "You look for sharp angles," Koppelhus says. "Most of the landscape is rounded by erosion. But where paleontologists have dug, there's usually a right angle cut into a hill, with a flat surface beneath it. When you see these contours, you look around for bits of plaster and burlap that would have been used to put protective jackets over the fossils. Sometimes you can even find bits of old newspapers."

By midday, however, Currie's colleagues were so drained by the heat they were ready to abandon the search. "It was our last scheduled day in the area," he says. "We went out in the morning, and everyone underestimated how much water to bring." But when the others returned to camp, Currie pushed on: "I couldn't leave, not knowing." Finally, alone, he reached the top of the distant ridge. He looked down and saw the telltale angled cuts made by shovels. At long last, he had found Mr. Bones's fossil heap. "If it wasn't for the fact that I was so close to heat exhaustion," he says, "I would have been jumping up and down."

But he still had to get back to camp with the heat and dehydration setting in. On the way, he stopped at a river and tried bending down to unlace his boots so he could go in the water. But his legs wouldn't bend. So he sat on the riverbank for a while, inching his legs closer and closer to his body until he could undo the boots. Wading in the water revived him a bit, and he slipped into camp without anyone's noticing. Quietly he changed into a swimsuit and went back to the river to immerse himself and cool his body. Then he returned to camp. The others had gathered around Koppelhus, who was rereading Brown's old letters, scouring them for location clues. "I said, 'I found it,' " Currie remembers. "And everything just broke loose."

Last spring Currie and his researchers returned to the site for a preliminary excavation, needing to answer an important question: Was this a group of tyrannosaurs from one time and place and not some random collection of bones that had been dumped there by river currents? Currie quickly came to the conclusion that the bones were 95 percent Albertosaurus. "Normally, Albertosaurus is only 5 percent of the fauna in this area," Currie says. "With 95 percent, and all in the same state of preservation, we can be pretty sure that they were together." There were ten, one more than Brown had thought, and they ranged in size from about 15 feet long for the youngsters up to about 30 feet long for the more massive adults.

The key to understanding the interaction among the tyrannosaur youngsters and their elders, Currie says, is the different proportions of the leg bones. "The legs of baby tyrannosaurs are built with ostrichlike proportions, similar to the fast ostrich-mimic dinosaurs. So they were pretty fast," he says. When an animal is young and small, it can have long legs like stilts. But, Currie says, "it gets harder as you get bigger because the stilts tend to break. You get older, and suddenly you have to worry about weight. You add all this weight and muscle, and you have to add more bone to the thighs to support it. That's what happens in adult tyrannosaurs. It happens in humans too. Our proportions change pretty dramatically from childhood to adulthood." And, of course, we slow down.

A mixed group of fast and slow carnivores may have had different roles when hunting prey such as the cattlelike hadrosaurs. "You can't help but imagine these young tyrannosaurs cutting a hadrosaur out of a herd and driving it into the jaws of the big guys," he says. That would help solve something that has long puzzled Currie as he thought about the different Alberta dinosaurs and what ate what. An adult hadrosaur is about 35 feet long, similar in size to a big Albertosaurus. "So a lone tyrannosaur probably wouldn't go after a lone hadrosaur, let alone a big herd. But hunting packs of animals would have strategies for dealing with big herds. They would try to confuse the hadrosaurs, or separate some of them out. These tyrannosaur youngsters were sleek and mean."

Currie pauses, the scene of the hunt fading from his mind. "This is just speculation, of course. There's a whole other side to packing--for raising young. There are interesting ideas that might develop out of this." His colleague Rodolfo Coria has recently discovered a bone bed of a new species of large carnivore, closely related to Giganotosaurus, in Argentina. Currie and Coria hope that comparisons between the sites might yield further insights into social interaction.

Currie also hopes to learn what killed the tyrannosaurs along the river. It's hard to imagine a catastrophe that would wipe out a bunch of strong, dominant dinosaurs all at once. There's no sign of a big flood or volcanic ash that would tell of an eruption. So Currie is going back to the site this summer, although he hopes for a much easier trip. But as someone who divides time into chunks of millions of years, he can say, "You have to take a long-term perspective: the discomfort will stop. The challenge, the mystery, is always going to be there."

Austin, I can't disagree with you, Utaraptor is probally the deadilest carnivore.....from the plant-eater's point of view. Utaraptor probally had the highest hunt sucess ration of all. But if you are looking for the offical deadilest carnivore, T-Rex still holds the title, because we are still not sure if Utaraptor hunted in a pack. If Utaraptor hunted alone, it would not be the deadilest dino of all after all. Then again, new evidence does show T-Rex did hunt in packs, making it even deadiler than the any Raptor pack. I suspect though, the Raptors still hold the title of being the deadilest predator to small prey, as T-Rex and all the other big carnivores cannot catch them.

I used to think that T-Rex was a scavenger, mainly due to the fact that he is the most popular dinosaur on earth and I didnt like it that way. I prefered to think of T-Rex as a lowly scavenger for I couldn't bear the though of it chasing down and killing a trceratops, my favourite animal. In fact, what certain scientists said about T-Rex as a scavender helped to renforce that belief. Well, that was the past. After reading all this opposing arguments about T-Rex not being a dedicated scavenger, I must say my view of T-Rex has changed greatly. I now have a clearer picture of what a powerful predator this animal once once, thanks guys! Here's one for the king!

Actually, Joe Bob, the raptors did decline. Their diversity by the time Tyrannosaurus appeared had suffered greatly and I find their decline, which was around the time of the rise of the Tyrannosaurs, highly suspect. Also another thing. We know Utahraptor and Tyrannosaurus would have never seen each other as they lived 20 million years apart.

Dino Warz 2

Now, many people have been disgrunted over the results of the latest Dino Warz deathmatch. In the last contest, T-Rex sue beat all the other contenders to remain king-(grrrr.....) er I mean Queen of all the dinosaurs. However, the Raptor team has filed a appeal to fight the Queen again, and she has taken up the challange! How will this turn out? Let's interview the Queen

Bill: Hi sue!
Sue: Hi Bill!
Bill: OK, why did you choose to fight the raptors again?
Sue: Naa, I have been receiving a lot of hate mail from the raptor fans over the last fight, so I'd like to prove it to them I can take on a pack of any raptor to shut them up!
Bill: Woah! Ok, don't diss the raptor fans, they are also here in ZoomDinosaurs.com to learn something!
Sue: Yes, they should learn that I am Queen! Growww.....
Bill: Any battle plan for this grugematch?
Sue: Na, the usual moves. Hey Brad, I want you over for lunch someday, what do you say?
Bill: Now now, your musuem contract says you can't date any ZoomDinosaur visitors?
Sue: Huh, when I said I wanted him over for lunch, I meant-
Bill:Tank you Sue, lets move over to the raptors! Switch screen to raptor room:
Bill: Hi Raptors
Velociraptor pack: Snarl...Hi
Bill: Say, what are you gonna do?
Megaraptor pack: We are gonna tear Sue apart!
Bill: Why did you appeal against the results of the last contest?
Velociraptor: Cos it wasn't fair. We weren't fighting Sue in a pack,
something we do best! Also, Sue cheated when Tyrannosaurus Imperator Sue came in and ate the second opposing team!
Bill:So, what's different this time?
Megaraptor: We're fighting Sue as a pack! Two species on one Tyrannosaur!
Bill: But the combined weight of your team outweights Sue by 2 times! Isn't that....unfair?
Megaraptor:Whatda you mean..snarl.....
Bill: Err, we better get started.
Switch screens to deathmatch arena.
Sue: Rowgh! Who's first!
Velociraptor Pack: We're!
Sue: Which one of you is first?
Velociraptor pack: We're all attacking you! (Leaps at her!)
Sue:Hey! not fair! Ow! Ouch! ow!
Velociraptor pack: We're winning (The entire pack of 20 raptors swarm Sue!)
Sue: Woah! Getta off me! You are too heavy!
Velociraptor 12: She's gonna fall! We'll be the king of Dinosaurs!
Sue: I AM GOING DOWN AHHHHH (BOOM! SUE FALLS!)
Velociraptors 1-10: AHHHHHHHHH (SQUISH! SQUISH! SQUISH! SQUISH!)
Bill: It looks like any Velociraptor victory is premature! Sue has crushed half the pack in her fall!
Velociraptor 11-20: SHUT UP (Falls off sue in the fall)
Sue: (getting up) Thanks guys, for breaking my fall!
Crushed Velociraptor: Anytime.....ohhh tell my girl I love her..ah (dies)
Sue: OK, my turn! Roar!~ (stomp! stomp!)
Velociraptor 14: She's stomping us get outta- ah (squish! dies)
Bill: Only five raptors are left! Should they quit?
Velociraptor 16: Err, boss should we stop? Alpha Velociraptor 20:
No! Charge!~~~(trumpet call)
Bill: Looks like the charge of the light bigrade!
Sue: Yummy! A buffet! (Chomp crunch bite snort crack)
Velociraptors: AHHHHH! NOOO! YAAA! AHHHH!
Bill: It looks like the entire Velociraptor pack is gone!
Megaraptor Pack: We must avenge our brothers!
Sue: So much for herorics!
JAYME G E: Go raptors go
Sue: Grrrh! (chomp!)
JAYME G E: ahhhh! (dies)
Bill: Specatators are adviced not to feed the animals.
Alpha Megaraptor: Go for her head! Sue: Haaaraahhhh!
Megaraptor 2: She has that deadily morning breath!AHHHH (DIES!)
Bill: Looks like the Megaraptors have not reckoned the bad breath of Sue, Half the pack pay the price!
Remainding 10 Raptors: Surround her! (They form a circle around Sue) Sue: Err, what are you doing?
Alpha Megaraptor: Get her! (leaps at Sue along with other
Megaraptors) Sue: Here we go again....(ducks)
Megaraptors: Huh? AHHHHHHHH (BONK BONK BONK They collide with each other midair, knocking themselves out cold)
Sue: Ah! A buffet (Crunch bite crunch bite eats the Megaraptors at her lesiure.)
Bill: Well, it looks like another victory by Sue. According to the Deathmatch rules, only one appeal can be made. It looks like the opposing force has failed in their attempt to oust Sue as the Queen. The Tyrannosaurus are going to erule for another 65 million yea- (Two gigantic packs of raptors, each 100 strong, march up)
Raptors: NOT SO FAST!
Bill: Not again? Another team?
Sue: HEY, 200 ON ME, NO FAIR!
Bill: That's right, the appeal has failed, go back to your musuems!
Raptors: We may not be the king of dinosaurs, but we are making sure
Sue will not be too either! If we can't have it, nobody will!
Sue: For such smart dinos, you all sure are childish!
Raptors: We don't care, attack!
Sue: I am doomed!
Raptors: Sue-Imperator can't save you now!
John: Not so fast!
Sue: Hey, what brings you here John?
Raptors: Who's that punk?

from coolcat, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 26, 2000


You are badly decluded Paul, or whatever your other alter-egos may be. As a paleontologist, I believe the Tyrannosaurus was more sucessful as a predator than the Raptors. Evidence that Tyrannosaurus Rex hunted in a pack made this predatoy even more deadly. They stayed together to slay together. This could explain why the Raptors went into decline after the Tyrannosaurids appeared, a pack of Raptors offered no competition to a Pack of Tyrannosaurus. In fact, the discovery of Raptor skull fragments in Tyrannosaur fossils tell us that this mighty predator may have viewed the Raptors as a meal also, no to mention he was able to catch them. When the Raptors were first discovered, many paleontologist believed they were the deadilest predotor ever, now the view is shifting bact to the Tyrannosaurus, as more and more evidence is discovered.

This is pathetic, resistance is futile. The closest dinosaur is Triceratops, which is far behind at 500 votes. T.Rex has 2100 votes on the other hand. Give it up lah. I choose T.Rex as my favourite. I used to like the Raptors until I came to this page. It totally destroyed any of my doubts as to who was the best dino in the world. The raptors are stuck playing second fiddle forever.

Tyrannosaurus Rex, because according to the Chaos Theory, a variable unit of genetic fitness may reach the edge slower than the non varibale units. Untis with extreme non-variance may reach the edge with to most potential chaotic energy and fall easily to extinction. They are unavoiably unstable strange attractors. Tyrannosaurus had a variable genetic fitness and was thus a stable system, that's why he is the best dinosaur around

I remember quite well the actions of that certain individual a while back trying to impose a rule about tyrannosaurus votes, and that's actually the type of situation I want to prevent. For those of you who weren't here, every time someone voted for T-rex he'd jump in and start insulting them over it and generally just giving them a hard time. It led to one rule about mentioning names in posts which was never enforced, because he would personnally go after people who voted T-rex. It's not even so much making fun of dinosaurs themselves that I see as a problem here, it's more the making fun of people for voting for certain dinosaurs that I think is wrong- I've been to too many debates where the emphasis is more on how badly others can be personnally insulted than how the actual issue can be argued. I hope I have cleared up any confusion as to my intentions, and rather than fight I would like to be friends with the people here and hopefully contribute! ! to the DinoTalk section. Pax?
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 26, 2000


T-Rex, cos he can take down any other species of dinosaur. I think this is possible after reading the huge article in the Dino Talk forum about T.Rexes hunting in packs. A lot of people have been saying a pack of raptors attacking a Rex would take it down, but I guess this doent apply anymore as Rex hunted in packs too, owwww too bad raptor maniacs!

from Kingston L, age 15, Beuford, Europe, England; November 26, 2000


I mean, if we were to restrict bashing other dinosaurs, if would be extremely deterimental to people voting here as I suspect a lot of people actually come here to have a "good" talk with their dinosaur rival fans. Don't do that, what do you say? Woe to the person who does not like to be teased. And that's coming from a Singaporean, who dosen't take free speech for granted.

Raptor fans, You are badly decluded, Tyrannosaurus is clearly superior to your favored species of dinosauria. In fact, I believe Tyrannosaurs forced the Dromaeosaurids into decline during their rule. The fossil record proves this. Just as the Tyrannosaurs were coming out in strength, the Raptors declined. This vote is for Tyrannosaurus Rex and all of the Tyrannosaur family.
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 26, 2000


Speak for yourselves, we now believe that the Velociraptor was actually a primitive raptor when compaired to it' north american counterparts. Velociraptor probally lived and hunted alone, unlike its bigger relatives. It's brian size was drastically smaller and it had a very high brian to weight ratio for a raptor, meaning for a raptor, it was dumb. T.Rex on the other hand, was advanced for a tyrannosaur and was a extremely complex animal that probally pair bonded and hunted in groups. No, your arguments cannot stand. Velociraptor is not better than T.rex. hehe
from aNIMENEN, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 26, 2000


The raptors scan the clearing from the cover of their hiding place within the monkey puzzle forest. The raptors is a beautiful predator, with switchblades claws designed to tear the life out of their victim. Long, dexterous hands allow them to work their prey into a killing bite. Strong swift legs allow them to sprint up to 40 miles per hour. Some species of raptors hunt in packs while some stake it out alone, but for the prey here, the raptors are of considerable size (3-4meters), and they hunt in packs.

The prey in question here is a male Anatotitan, 12 meters long an weighing 6 tons. The Anatotitan can crush the life out of a unwary lone raptor, but in a pack, the hardosaur's best defence is in a herd. Unluckly for this Anatotitan, it had somehow gotten seperated from its herd eariler in a Tyrannosaur attack. Usually the male, being in good health and of considerable size, would deter predators looking for a easy target, but the raptors are unusual as they readily attack even the strongest prey.

Rushing out of the undergrowth, the alpha raptor approaches the herbivore. The Anatotitan brays in alarm and rears up to deter the alpha raptor. The alpha raptor stops and hisses at the Anatotitan. The Anatotitan has little to fear from the alpha raptor as his immenese bulk deters an attack.

That is, until the rest of the pack burst out into the clearing behind the Anatotitan. Raptors do not plan their attack, but an entire pack may stalk the prey and surround it until the alpha raptor attacks. This triggers a free for all in which the raptors attack their prey en masse. The Anatotitan is heavily outnumbered and brays in fear and pain as they leap onto his thick hide and start kicking into him. He bucks and rears in a vain attempt to dislodge the predators but the fight is as over as soon as it begins. The Anatotitan collaspes in a spray of arterial blood and the raptors are quick to end his fight for survival in their favour.

An Anatotitan is a big kill, and a big kill may feed them for days. However, they must also defend their kill sucessfully during that period. Without wasting time, they start to eat the colossal body of their prey.

Bursting out of the undergrowth in thundering steps, a male Tyrannosaurus Rex roars and stamps his feet ten meters away from the kill. Usually a Tyrannosaurus moves around quietly while stalking a kill, but his intention this time is to intimidate. His does a good job at it, roaring and pretending to charge. His mission is obvious, he wants their kill.

Usually, a raptor pack would have withdrawn in such a situtation, but this raptor pack is a big pack, and the alpha raptor senses that his pack is big enough to have a chance of beating the Tyrannosaurus in a fight. However, attacking a Tyrannosaur is dangerous, even a pack will certainly take heavy losses if they decide to take on the Tyrannosaur. For a moment, the entire pack joins the alpha raptor in hissing and snarling at the Tyrannosaur in a tense stalemate.

Suddenly, a female Tyrannosaur charges out of the monkey puzzle forest in a ear-splitting roar. She is bigger than the male Tyrannosaur and thus more intimidating. This is no coincidence, Tyrannosaurus breed by pair-bonding, and this is certainly the first Tyrannosaurus' mate.

The alpha raptor is distracted by the noisy female and fails to notice he is now standing less than three meters from the first Tyrannosaur. The Tyrannosaur senses this and siezes the raptor in a sudden blur of movement. The raptor squeals in surprise and pain. It kicks out vainly at the giant predator and one bite ends the life of the doomed animal.

Seeing the death of their leader, the resolve of the raptor pack breaks and they bolt. The female Tyrannosaur sees to this , chasing them into the forest before turning back. She waits a while before confirming that the raptors really are gone before giving a series of short, sharp burplike barks.

The undergrowth starts to move as three 4 meter long animals move out. They are young Tyrannosaurus, offspring of the pair. Aready they have the bone cruching teeth of their parents but are yet too small and inexperienced to bring down live prey, they learn by watching their parents. For now, they start to tear at the flesh of the dead Anatotitan with their mother. The male has his own with the mangled raptor. Quickly, they feed.

The tyrannosaurs are a sucess story. Over the years, their numbers have been steadily increasing while other predators, like the raptors are declining. It is aready clear that they have now replaced all other raptor and carnosaur ecological niches. Even eons after the dinosaurs went extinct, their sucess contuines as more and people send votes for them. I am not different. THis vote goes out to T.Rex.
from SP, age 23, ?, ?, ?; November 26, 2000


Speak for yourself paul There is evidence that T-Rex hunted in a pack. Now since you have gone through the misguided trouble of dissing T-Rex, I shall engage in your childish game of pitting on dino against another. A pack of rexes vs a pack of Utaraptors will definatly win. Why? firstly, bothe dinos were equally smart. Similar brain size meant no dino was dumber. However, Utaraptor's claws did not pack as much punch as a Rex bite (that's 15tons/square inch mind yo!) While one slash from utaraptor would dice flesh, One bite from rex will shread flesh and caush nasty compound fractures. T-rex's discusting oral hygine would also mean that infection would set in from one bite (a tatic the monitor lizards use). Utaraptor would have an advantage in speed and agility, but they would be overwhelmed by T-Rex's bulk (means they can take more damage) Firepower and bad breath (t-rex's chemical warfare). Ok let's stop this. The utaraptor is good at doin' its own thing, so was t-rex. In fact, I say the Utaraptor is the T-REX of the Raptor family one reason it's also one of my favourite dinos, followed by t rex. But i just couldnt stand by and watch joe insult the king could I?
from Rex Defender, age 16, ?, ?, ?; November 26, 2000


T-rex. Now about all this T-rex vs Raptor crap, Stop it! No raptor pack would have attack a T-rex with full conviction. In fact, as the lion of the dinosaur world, Tyrannosaurus regulary took the lazy path by forcing other harder working dinosaurs (like the a raptor pack) to leave their kills. The raptor pack could attack, yes, but probally stood the chanch of grevious injury.(T-REX can certanly kill any raptor save for Utaraptor with one bite) But then again, many people have a misconcepton of T-Rex as a solitary hunter. Recently found evidence have shown that T-Rexes did hunt in a pack, like the raptors. This isnt really surprising for the Rexes arent really that different from the raptors, they both came from the same line. Lastly, T-rex was superior cos it was the better survior, by the time T-Rex had appeared, most of the raptors and the all of the so called super Allosaurs like Gigantosaurus are aready fossils. So in the end, T-Rex was a better and more advanced dinosaur.

I am Myojo, and up to now, only you americans have been voting in this crisis. It's time for us asians to speak up too. I see the counterattack organised by Honkie has opened a hole for us to attack.

I have assembled all my family and friends who love Tyrannosaurus Rex here at the Sakura, the biggest internet cafe in Kobe. We are going to try to reach 3000 votes by midnight, our time. We are going to be honourable, everybody is going to only vote once. If I have not enough people, I will ask people from outside to vote too. We are not going to do the dishonourable method used by raptor fan to place many votes.

Gallimimus:You're right about that!I'll show you! (Starts pecking)
T-Rex: No No, you got to try something like this...ROARRRR!

Martin, we have no problem with Dienonychus. It's the overhyped Velociraptor we are all up in arms about. Look at Jurassic Park. They pratically used Dienonychus in the movie but used the name Velociraptor, taking all the credit from Dienonychus. True raptor fans like you know that Dienonychus is actually better. We appeal to you. Do not join Paul or you will be hurting Dienonychus even worse.
from Offical T-Rex fan club, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 24, 2000


Yes Martin. You are of raptor fan material. You like Dienonychus do you not? Well, Dienonychus is certainly not Velociraptor's equal, Dienonychus was way above it. Please do not insult T-rex, we have close ties with the T-rex fan club. Do not hurt that bond. Stop hanging along with Paul now if you value peace.
from Offical Raptor fan club, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 24, 2000


Martin, we Tyrannosaurus fans have nothing against Dienonychus. We think it's pretty cool infact. It's Velociraptor we have a problem with. It's way overrated for thing it didn't do. I mean come on, Dienonychus was the best raptor of all, Velociraptor is a puny small raptor. Do not drag you dinosaur down to Velociraptor's level, this is not your fight.

And by the way, here's another vote for T.rex. Throw onwe in for the underrated Dienonychus too.

CNA Headlines

DECLARATION OF WAR

Early November 24 2000, a group known as the Raptor Axis Invaders have declared war on all countries of the Tyrannosaur Alliance.

Leading the attack would be the Raptor leaders Hipauler and Martinlinni, leaders of the Raptor Axis alliance. Currently, theyt are inciting other countries to join. This may be the start of the Second Zoom War. The first Zoom War ended up with the defeat of Jimmy L, former leader of the Axis forces.

Mobilization

Currently, the Allies are mobilizing their forces to deal with the threat. But weathetr they can sucessfully counter this threat remains to be seen. General Firebird describes this as a state of emergency greater that anything every seen in Zoom. The previous dinosaur wars ended eariler with the defeat of coolcat and Kylie.

The return of coolcat?

Despite self imposed exile, coolcat has been sighted a few times in ZoomDinosaurs, could he be back to join the Axis?

When the Axis and Allies are in conflict, only time will determine who goes down into history as the victor or the loser.

We can make fun of their favourite dinosaur for a while, but carry this out and we'll get hurt. I just posted all these comments for fun. If you really valued your self-worth, you had better apologize to them soon. I only made fun of T-rex for a while, you don't see me doing it like you. Frankly, raptor-fan to raptor-fan, Paul, its dangerous for you to go on like this. Martin, you too. Please stop all this now Paul, grow up. I hate to admit this but Tyrannosaurus was better.

Lets be governed by relatity and not by what we want it to be. It's obvious...Tyrannosaurus was the better predator.
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000


Tyrannosaurus Rex, he's better than the raptors and THAT'S a fact.
from Moyjo, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000


Paul, you are wrong, Velociraptor was closer to the birds, therefore it should be the king of chickens, not T-rex. T-rex is the king of dinosaurs. Whoever gave you the idea that T-rex meant king of chicken anyway or did you make it up yourself? Do you even know any latin?
from Mrad, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000


Paul, prehaps you don't understand us but it's all right to have Velociraptor as your favourite. Nobody is going to stop you. The problem is that you are trying to compair it to the powerful T.rex, which is not one bit impressed. You can like Velociraptor, by all means, but admit T.rex is better.

Hallmarks of Dinosaur History

1842, Dinomania starts when the term is coined. Dinosaurs thought to be closely related to birds and active.

1842-1890, Many dinosaurs identified wrongly as Megolosaurus.

1892, Sauropods discovered give people impression dinosaurs were slow, stupid lumbering beasts destined for extinction.

1905, An obsqure dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus Rex is discovered by Osborn. Unlnown to him at that time, it would soon be the most popular dinsoaur in the world.

1942, WW2 destroys many original fossils! Spinosaurus(all right!) lost.

1950, Dinos seen in flims as tail dragging morons.

1970, Another popular dinosaur genera, the raptors are found. Thought to be the deadilest animals ever to walk the earth, exceeding even Tyrannosaurus rex. Bakker also turns the paelo-world upside down with his theory of warm blooded dinosaur.

1980, lengthy debate, general agrement reached.

1990-98, Sucessful dinosaur shows, raptor popularity rises even more, now almost equal to Tyrannosaurus, looks capable of breaching the Tyrannosaur-barrier.

1998-2000, Closer invesgitation reveals great flaws in the raptor theory. Popularity plunges after findings, haven't recovered since. Tyrannopsaurus now the greatest and most popular dinosaur by a wide margin.
from Poling, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000


Look, I'd rather stay out of this, but I'll correct your factual errors:

Paul, the Velociraptors wasn't killed by a sandstorm. Examination of the rock matrix has yeldied no evidence of this. We now know that the Velociraptor was trying to steal a infant dinosaur when an angry parent killed it. Alot of Velociraptor fossils found with smashed skulls indicate that Protoceratops would probally be able to handle Velociraptor anyday.

Tyrannosaurus didn't kill Triceratops 50percent of the time and died in 50 percent of the other. If you are talking about faliure rate, where the prey got away, its probally fifty fifty. But if you are refering to a fight to the death, Tyrannosaurus would probally emerge victor most of the time. Its the job of the predator to kill and not be killed by the prey. And Tyrannosaurus does this admirably.

Another thing. As a paleontologist, I have to tell you that the Eq system is actually outdated. If we go in accordance to the Eq system, it would mean that adverage human babies, the dolphins, certain apes and monkeys are smarter then us as they have higher Eqs. We now know this is a flawed and outdated system for measuring intelligence. We now look at actual brain size and structure. A complex structure indicates a realtively intelligent dinosaur while a simple but big brain indicates a primitive intellect. Tyrannosaurus had an extremely complex brain, meaning it was extremely fast and bright, probally reminding you of an over-sized bird of prey. The raptors on the other hand had an extermely simple, egg shaped brains. Despite a higher eq, they were probally dimmer witted compaired to Tyrannosaurus.

At last. I won't put up arguments on which dinosaur is better, but I'd like to tell you that it was the rise of Tyrannosauids that put the raptors out of a job. The decline of the raptors have been noted by a rise of the Tyrannosauids. I'd prefer you use facts to argue, instead of simply lamblasting the other dinosaur. But as a paleontologist born in raptor mania, I still have to tell you that it dosen't look too good for the raptors now.

Raptor mania refers to a period of time where the raptors were all the rage. Raptor fans were at their peak there. But now, as doubts and misconceptions started to surface and be addressed, the raptors have fallen out of favour. Compair the amount of raptor votes last time to now and you will notice that the number of raptor fans are falling...you are going extinct. Enough of this, here's one for big rex.

from Paul, age 10, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000


We now know T-rex wasn't pretty rare, but was often seen. Because of now, we have found more than 30 fossils, putting it into the "often seen" range. T-rex wasn't particually dumb either. Go ask Horner and Bakker. T-rex was actually quite bright and fast. Not to mention its eagle eyesight and super nose. You really should back your claims wth facts you know. T-rex was anything but weak. He was built like a tank. He could survive Ankylosaur blows, Triceratops slashes and bites from other T-rexes, something that would have killed your lously raptors long before.
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000

from Anthony and Simon, age 7 and 8, Eungai Creek, nsw, Australia; November 23, 2000


It looks like you are hardly in the mood for a rational debate, but I will indulge you anyway. The reason we like T.rex is because of history, the raptors weren't really sucessful because the Tyrannosauids drove them into decline. So there is really no question about it. The fossil record proves that the Tyrannosauids were the better predator. If the raptors really were that deadly, they would not have gone into decline. Paul, Martin, it's unlikely you can ever answer rationally as you people are in denial but anyway, here's one for T.rex
from Leonard, age 12, ?, ?, ?; November 23, 2000


Count me out of this. The last time I tried this, I got burnt. Let me warn you: The T-rex fans are a powerful force to be reckoned with. We can make fun of their favourite dinosaur for a while, but carry this out and we'll get hurt. I just posted all these comments for fun. If you really valued your self-worth, you had better apologize to them soon. I only made fun of T-rex for a while, you don't see me doing it like you.

You guys are living in the past man, now paleontologist agree that Tyrannosaurus wasa the better predator because it drove the raptors into decline.

It gets too much publicity!! It was not very smart and could not run very fast and only lived for 3 million years!!! Most dinosaurs lived much longer for example coelurus ( a really lousy dinosaur, but better than T-rex) lived for 10 million years! T-rex was also pretty rare.

For all of you T-Rex lovers, i'm here to write your paragraphs. While T-Rex is not my favorite dinosaur, i can attest to why all of you love this animal so much. The very mention of T-Rex implies power. This animal was built to take down the large herbivors of its time. The bite pressure of T-Rex was extraordinary! Crocs today exert 3000 lbs of pressure per square inch. Now imagine a Rex's bite pressure, who has a jaw larger and much more powerful than a crocs. The teeth capitalize on this ability. They are not extremely sharp, but they are serated and strong. A Rex does not slash flesh with his teeth, he crushes it. When he bites, the teeth and pressure combination breaks bones and severs muscles and tendons deep within the victim. Imagine the power it takes to crack the spine of a Triceratops, thats what T-Rex does. Power does not only exist in the jaws, but in the whole animal. Even the small arms are strong. Each arm(which are about! as long as ! one of ours) was estimated to lift 400lbs. Few of us can bench 400lbs with one arm. The legs of T-Rex were built like a locomotive. The femurs were extremely thick and had huge muscles attached. Rex could probably reach a speed of 30 miles per hour, more than enough to catch the large herbivors of its day if it had to. This whole animal was a power house. To find out more info, including what i have mentioned here, read "The Complete T-Rex" by John Horner, and depending on your age read "The Dinosaur Hereises" by Robert Bakker. Then you to can defend why you love T-Rex so much and amaze your opponents at the sametime
from D, age 18, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


unlike baker trex was more than a scavenger i believ it was a pure killing machine why eles would it need the power it possessed! I advocate Feddom of speech and the right to vote for Tyrannosaurus!

My favorite dinosaur is T-Rex because It is meat eater and it was the king of the world. I like it because it looks cool and Roars like a king. I want to have T-Rex like a pet.
from Davin K, age 11, LA, CA, USA; November 21, 2000


Tyrannosaurus Rex because he one of the largest carnivore ever. Over 40ft long and teeth the size of bannanas, it was the king of its time. It was one of the last of the dinosaurs. He's "Da Bomb!!!!!"

Good work guys, we can WIN THE DAY!!!!!! Tyrannosaurus Rulessssss!
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


T-Rex] Well in my opinion the T-Rex is a very intresting Dino. Scientist have disagreed over alot of things about this meat eater, and some I do not agee with. For example, in my calculations i beleave that the youngs of the T-Rex, was takin care of,not only for weeks maybe, but in a case of maybe two months. Also they were probably not scavengers eaither.Any ways T-Rex is my favorite dino.

Tyrunasaus Rex, Why because it is a neat dinosaur and it is cool!
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


Listen up Utah Raptor fans! And Giganotosaurus fans... I've been scrolling through the Earlier Dinosaur Favorites and I've been noticing that there have been a lot more Utah Raptor votes, and to my distaste, they were saying things against my favorite dino, T-rex. Now, let's see. If Utah Raptor and T-rex met, first of all, Utah Raptor wouldn't want to face him. T-rex is such a large, powerful predator in comparison to Utah Raptor. The smaller dino would probably back down unless she had her pack behind her. This is where its a more even battle. Utah Raptor is smarter, swifter, and sharper clawed than T-rex. Using its brain, the smart raptors would create a plan. One raptor would distract the Tyrannosaur while the others came from behind and did the killing. But, because T-rex has such a great sense of smell, he would probably smell the raptors behind him and kill them. If he killed the head hauncho Utah Raptor the others would not know what to do an! ! d would not want to face the large predator. Therefore, the win would belong to the enormous Tyrannosaur.
from Alec F, age 14, Fresno, CA, USA; November 21, 2000

t.RIX
from ?, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


I've already voted in my favorite dinosaur, but I was hoping I would be allowed to post why I think T-rex is so popular. While we now know it wasn't the biggest carnivorous dinosaur, for decades it has held that title, and a newly discovered specimen might just win it back. It has a great name ("tyrant lizard king") and is one of the few dinos with a "nickname". Giganotosauruus and Carcharodontosaurus are awfully long. Also, it lived in North America, and literally once roamed our backyards (at least in the case of USA and CAN). More scientific reasons it SHOULD be popular are that it was more closely related to birds than the carnosaurs, was more likely to have had feathers or proto-feathers at some point in its life, and, judging by its affinities with the troodonts and the ostrich dinos, was probably much faster and smarter than the more primitive carnosaurs. Also, I'll admit, it's better known, but if someone wants to try and change that they should write a book featuring another dinosaur. (As was the case of Velociraptor.) Being old school, though, I'm glad to see the classics haven't died
from Mary N, age 16, ?, ?, USA; November 21, 2000


My favorite dino is T-Rex. Standing at least eighteen feet tall a six foot man would only reach his knee. T-Rex's enormous maw which could grow up to 5 feet long could tear through flesh and crunch through solid bone. Unlike the larger Giganotosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus T-Rex was equipped with bone crunching jaws. Giganotosaurus and is smaller relative Carcharodontosaurus had to kill their prey by taking huge chunks of meat out of them. Therefore T-Rex was superior. Grabbing his prey's neck he could bring down his jaws with a tremendous force causing his victim to die instantly. If T-Rex got in a battle with either Giganotosaurus or Carcharodontosaurus the outcome could not be rvealed. But in a way I think the more developed T-Rex would win the battle. Using the same tecnique as he would use to kill his prey T-Rex w! ould be the champion. That is why he's my favorite dino.
from Pa W, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


I started to liked dinosaurs when I was 3. Since then, I my knowledge of dinosaurs grew. I heard and read about many dinosaurs. And my favourite dinosaur is T-Rex! Although some bigger dino predator have been found, none is more specialised to be a bone crunching killing machine like T-Rex. T-Rex evolved from a long line of successful dino predators. T-Rex. Tyrant Ruler. The name tells you all about T-Rex
from Suk-hwa C, age 13, Coventry, ?, UK; November 21, 2000


My favorite dinosaur is the t-rex because the baby t-rex eats eggs so they can get strong.

from McKayL, age 5, Montana, Montana, United States; November 21, 2000


T-Rex, it was the meanest, fastest, biggest , smartest, best smelling, coolest namest, most powerfulest, baddest and exalted above all dinosaursus.

He probally used his two clawed hands to show other dinosaurs obscene signs to tell them :"I am the baddest ##%^^% dinosaur around so don't mess with me of I will kick your @#$/"
from Badboy, age ?, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


Lishen up Shonnies. My favorite dino ish Tyrannoshaurush Rexsh. Even if she didn't have da biggesht brain. She wash shtill tough. And I don't know about you, but I believe dat you would feel greater pain while being chomped on by a Tyrannoshaur. For exshample, if T-rexsh had a family full a babiesh she might chomp on you and den take ya back ta her babiesh where they did the eaten. You would shtill be alive. Think of 8 inch long teeth slicing into yo bodiesh. Now dat would hurt! Sho whoever it wash dat wrote dat a chompin from T-rexsh wouldn't hurt ish plainly wrong. SHO YOU BETTER NOT INSHULT MY TYRANNOSHAUR YOU YOUNG'UN!!!!!!

Good morning.

Good morning. In just a few hours from now, all of you will be voting on this webpage. In will be the single largest verbal conflict in the history of Tyrannosaurus ever.

Tyrannosaurus eh? Word should have a new meaning for all of us today. We cannot be divided by our petty differences anymore.

Prehaps, there is a certain irony that today is the 21st of November. We are not fighting against persecution, tyranny or opression, but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live.

And if we win the day, the 21 of November will be known as the day where the Tyrannosaur fans stood together, shoulder to shoulder and declared in ONE voice! We will not give up without a fight! We will not go quietly without a fight! May our heads be held high until the very last moment! We will not die! We will survive!

Today.

We celebrate, our independence day!
from The Tyrannosaur President, age 15, ID21, Independence Day, North America; November 21, 2000

from Vossler C. age 10, ?, ?, ?; November 21, 2000


It's really sad, I used to be a avid raptor fan, but now the raptors have fallen from grace. We not know they did not hunt in packs nor did they bring down large prey. They were just about as unremarkable as a small dinosaur. Velociraptor is the worst of the lot. Before I knew better, I though it was a killing machine capable of taking on Tyrannosaurus, but now I know that even a lowly Protoceratops can take it out.

SO that left me without a favourite dinosaur. I noticed so many people must like Tyrannosaurus for a reason. Yes! Tyrannosaurus was certainly better and not as over-hyped as the raptors. What I saw as hype in Tyrannosaurus soon turned to fact as I observed this dinosaur. Tyrannosaurus is the right fqavourite dinosaur to have! Long live the Tyrant Reptile King!
