Has T. rex Bitten Off More than it Can Chew?
Yes, we know that tyrannosaurids did not chew their food. The table manners of a Tyrannosaurus rex would have been non existent, these fearsome creatures were “gulpers”, tearing off huge chunks of flesh and gulping it down as quickly as they could – not to put too fine a point on it. The team members at Everything dinosaur could not resist the strapline. However, “she who must be obeyed”, our boss affectionately known, when she is out of ear shot as “Tyrannosaurus Sue” is slowly but surely making her way through the mountain of chocolates, sweets and goodies she seems to have accumulated over the holiday period.
We were sent various images of dinosaur models in festive poses over the holiday period. Not too many images of members of the Tyrannosauridae consuming chocolate treats.

The Rebor King T. rex Figure
Many of the images we received feature the recently introduced Rebor King Tyrannosaurus rex figure. This, the second replica in the Rebor series, it is a 1:35 scale model and it has proved to be very popular with dinosaur fans and collectors.
To view the range of Rebor prehistoric animal replicas available from Everything Dinosaur: Rebor Models and Figures.
Taking a perspective from a background in geology, “Tyrannosaurus Sue” assures us that her chocolate mountain, like all mountains is gradually being “eroded”. Roll on Easter!
