Scientists Claim That The T-Rex Didn’t Really Run Fast Enough To Hurt You, So Do NOT Worry About DNA

If the movie, Jurassic Park, scared you as a little kid and made you fear the unethical scientists behind the rise of the dinosaurs, then researchers have some good news. A new study uncovered that the T-Rex didn’t actually run all that fast and was an even bigger slowpoke than initially assumed.

A research team at the University of Manchester School of Earth and Environmental Sciences published its new findings on the T. Rex in the journal PeerJ on July 18. The team, led by William Sellers, conducted a series of “biomechincal techniques” to see how a T. rex would actually run. They used multi body dynamic analysis, skeletal stress, and machine. –Yahoo

A simulated image of T-Rex running an be seen below:

Researchers say that this proves that the T-Rex couldn’t run, at least not quickly, so we should all settle down when biologists want to replicate the DNA of the T-rex. According to comments, as you can see, the T-rex wasn’t that fast (and its notoriously stubby arms were pretty useless). But, the research team concluded that the T-Rex could only run 12 miles per hour. If the dinosaur ran any faster, its bones would break due to its weight. This, of course, means the T-Rex probably couldn’t have chased down Jeff Goldblum’s character in Jurassic Park as he tried to get away in a Jeep Wrangler.

What do you think? Unnecessary biological science? Or a government conspiracy to bring back carnivores that most humans cannot combat?

    that is some useful info right there……..;)

    In light of this finding, it would be interesting to confirm if T-Rex was a predator or a scavenger. It’s inability to run as well as the uselessness of it’s stubby little arms would render it a poor candidate as a predator. Still, twelve miles per hour is plenty fast enough to run down overweight, plodding humans whose sole means of exercise often involves only video gaming. I wouldn’t want to have to bring one down with only 5.56 rounds either.

      Why would it need such a big mouth filled with teeth for scavenging?

      • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

        Probably because the carcasses it fed on were mostly from other large dinosaurs with thick skin, heavy muscle and large bones. It’s possible that they were primarily scavengers but also situational, opportunistic predators. Either way, dining on other dinosaurs would require substantial toothiness…

          Buzzards don’t have them and do just fine.

          • RandyJ/ProudSurvivor

            When was the last time you saw a buzzard feeding on a dinosaur carcass?

  • santos domingo

    .308 would be better or .50 cal
    regardless of that
    if anyone was wondering
    I do not miss T-Rex

    How long could they sustain 12 miles an hour cause some predators use stamina
    Rather than sheer speed to capture prey.
    If it could sustain that speed for an hour most would be caught.
    Average people run at 15 mph over short distances (people in moderately good shape) and jog at 5 mph distance varies but is to slow to escape. Even Usain bolt would get caught after he got winded.

    Why don’t people care about the fact that all dinosaurs are made up from just a few bones?

    Nothing about dinosaurs makes sense to me.
    But since we’ve been taught about them since our childhoods…let’s just go with it, no need to ask questions, right?

  • Milly Vanilly

    Scientists CLAIM…..Which scientists ? The story states a research team at the University of Manchester…so I’m ‘guessing’ a Liberal professor/teacher & some students on GRANT MONEY ? ……..Could ‘Trigglypuff’ (remember ‘IT’ ?) be ONE of the students/researchers ?
    Are these the same ‘scientists’ they use for Vaccine & global warming ‘facts’ ?
