Tyrannosaurus, also known as the ‘tyrant lizard’ had a bite force that was so tremendous that it was considered to be the strongest among all dinosaurs and all the living terrestrial animals. Its bite force could reach up to 5,805 Kilograms. It had a mass of 5,800 – 15,000 kg and was about 4.6 – 6.1 m tall, half as tall as a telephone pole.
Considered to be the largest land-living carnivore of all time, Tyrannosaurus was capable of delivering bites that could crush stones. Its most massive tooth had a length of about 12 inches. It fed on plant-eating dinosaurs.
