palaeofail-explained: palaeofail: “Tyrannosaur…



“Tyrannosaurus”, as seen on a Madagascar postage stamp. 

I’m certain I don’t have to do too much explaining here, but here goes: Tyrannosaurus had a proportionally larger, boxier skull. It carried its body in a horizontal posture, with the tail well off the ground, and it couldn’t splay its legs like this. It didn’t have its feet flat on the ground; rather, its ankles were lifted in what is called a “digitigrade” stance. The chest/torso should be deeper; the arms should be shorter; and the hands should be turned so that their palms faced inwards.
