T. rex downgraded from king of the reptiles

'Improved computer modelling suggests that the leg bones of a T. rex would have snapped under the pressure of a sprint.’

“In a paper published in PeerJ, William Sellers of the University of Manchester and colleagues demonstrate a model that shows that a true running gait would have placed intolerable stress on the T. rex frame and led to snapped leg-bones.

“This reduces the range of possible speeds the dinosaur could have moved at, the authors write, and ‘essentially limits adults of this species to walking gaits’”.
