“Things like lips are not fossilized, so we don’t know for sure. The contention around T-Rex and other dinosaurs goes beyond just their appearances,” he said.
Jack Horner, an American paleontologist and dinosaur expert, has significantly contributed to our understanding of dinosaurs and their evolution.
Mr Hornere and his colleagues argue that T-rex’s massive head and limited arms would have hindered its ability to maintain balance and stop abruptly while running.
“It (T-rex) was running with its big head and, frankly, lack of arms and not being able to stop itself.”
Mr Horner said that dinosaurs would not be perceived as vibrant, singing, and dancing creatures because scientists allowed their personal opinions and biases to influence their research.
