    >it only has the most powerful vision of any animal ever, with a greater binocular range and visual acuity than modern birds of prey, and 13 times the visual acuity of a human for that matter
    >it can see you up to 6km away, can hear your footsteps, and likely smell you at the same distance, so just don't move and it won't get you

      It's amazing you can tell all that from the 15% full fossil record we have on these things. You DO realize that 80% of that "skeleton" is artistic representation, right?

        we have nearly complete skeletons
        and you don't need a complete skeleton to learn about its vision, you just need the head. You can estimate a lot about the characteristics of the eyes and other senses by the size and shape of the eye sockets, olfactory bulbs, cochlea, and so on

          Why is it when I google pictures of T Rex they all have different posture, height, head shape, skin color, tail length, etc. etc.?

            just like every other animal?
            how's your posture?

              Well, I also walk on two feet but my head is the highest point. In lots of images T rex is represented as the "Jurassic Park" type, and in others it head is nearly horizontal with its tail, with its neck/back being the highest point. That tells me you can't even accurately judge something as simple as where its center of gravity was, much less how many rod and cone receptors it had in its eyes.

                rods and cones aren't really relevant when it comes to visual acuity
                it's actually a lot easier to judge the strength of its senses because the skull is one big consistent bone. So you can look at the characteristics in the shape of the bone that determine the shape of the sensory organs, and thus their function.
                The back of an animal is many bones stuck together, so there's a lot more variance in how people guess that the bones might connect. But based on your jurassic park reference, you might be taking too much pop culture into account. A long time ago the tyrannosaurus was thought to be much more upright, in a sort of tripod position with its tail pointing at the ground. Nobody actually thinks this anymore.

        Being a kid and thinking they were actually discovering massive dinosaur skeletons all over the world, reassembling them and putting on display. When it's really a pile of bones scrapped together based off our understanding of a current creature.

          what the frick are you blabbering about? we have completed figures, bones all matching up to a complete exoskeleton, of dino's
          That isn't us just piling found bones together based on the animals we have now. They are completed figures of animals that literally used to exist.
          you still have the mind of a kid, clearly

        That picture you replied to is actually 80% real skeleton, it's the most complete t-rex skeleton ever found.

          moron, the skull on the rest of the skeleton is paper mache because the real skull is too heavy and is displayed separately

          the article says they are liars and thieves. they have multiple copies of the skull because they made too many. its all fake

      What is it hunting that it needs senses like that?

        it might have been a persistence hunter, walking prey to exhaustion across long distances. Obviously its size would be a problem for ambush predation, and its bipedalism and highly efficient legs would make it suited for long distance walking, but its size would make sprinting unlikely.
        If it was a persistence hunter, it makes sense that it would have good senses to track prey that might be miles away.

      is right. it's 84% paper mache . all we have of that t rex is some leg bones an miscellaneous bones, maybe a jaw bone and other pieces. but the whole face in that pic is barely there. some britsh israelite made it up mostly

    There's no way the bones would have lasted 65 fricking million years, that an absolutely absurd amount of time.
