Most tyrannosaurs were large predators, with very large high skulls approaching or well exceeding a full meter (more than three feet) in length. The best-known and largest member of the group is Tyrannosaurus rex, or T. rex. The “king of the tyrant lizards,” as its Latin name is usually translated, walked on powerfully developed hind limbs. If the animal had stood upright, it would have been more than 6.5 meters (21 feet) tall, but the usual posture was horizontal, with the body carried parallel to the ground and the tail held off the ground as a counterbalance. In this position a large adult, weighing 4,000 to 7,000 kg (about 9,000 to 15,000 pounds), could measure 14 meters (about 46 feet) long. Tyrannosaur lived from the late Jurassic Period (about 150 million years ago) to the end of the Cretaceous Period (about 65 million years ago).
