Stop Making Fun of Tyrannosaurs’ Tiny Arms


We often ridicule what we love, and, in the realm of dinosaurs, that may explain our complicated relationship with the late, great Tyrannosaurus rex. The gigantic carnivore is the A-list celebrity of the Mesozoic, making repeated appearances on the silver screen as well as holding an obligatory presence in most museum exhibits. Yet, we just can’t stop ourselves from poking fun at the tyrant’s dinky arms. Maybe, though, it’s time we stifle our laughter.
