    African elephant or Asian elephant? The size can vary pretty dramatically between the two.

    T-rex used his tremendous biteforce to kill STEGOSAURUS???
    Interesting indeed.

    Rick: Yes. T. rex was the Chuck Norris of the Cretaceous. It could bite through time!

    Touché, Greg.
    And the number of the beast was…?

    Now stop, this is getting silly.

    Is anything known about how bite forces vary
    among the diverse tyrannosaurid species?
    Alioramus, say, or Zhuchengtyrannus?

    I knew you’d say that.
    I just – knew.

    Well, that accounts for the complete and utter lack
    of any maastrichtian stegosauridae, I s’pose…
    …eaten through time.
