The earth has a long life history of 4 billion years. In such a long life, some powerful creatures have been born in different periods. Among the many ancient creatures, the one that impressed us the most was the dinosaur.
For dinosaurs, everyone knows that modern scientists have discovered a large number of dinosaur fossils through archaeology, and thus realized that 65 million years ago, the earth was an era when dinosaurs dominated. According to research, dinosaurs have ruled the earth for 160 million years. This is not a short time. It is only more than 2 million years since the birth of human beings.
Ancient earth creatures are very different from modern creatures in body shape. I believe many friends know that ancient creatures are synonymous with giants, and most creatures are much larger than modern animals. In particular, dinosaurs are among the best among giant creatures. Dinosaurs do not refer to a single creature alone. It is a collective term that contains many different species.
In the age of dinosaurs 65 million years ago, the dinosaur race was the mainstream of the earth, accounting for more than 90% of the earth’s living things at that time. There are not only terrestrial dinosaurs, but also aquatic dinosaurs and dinosaurs flying in the sky, so dinosaurs are just a general term, which is the same as we now call mammals. Mammals are just a general term, and there are many different species, including humans and mammals.
The dinosaur race is basically synonymous with tallness, especially some dinosaurs living on land, which are so big that we are scared. Of course, not all dinosaurs are very ferocious. Among them, herbivorous dinosaurs are very gentle. Although they have a very large body, they will not attack other animals easily. And those carnivorous dinosaurs are not so mild, most of them are more ferocious, and the king is Tyrannosaurus rex.
In such a huge race of dinosaurs, there are naturally kings, and this king is Tyrannosaurus. So how big is the Tyrannosaurus Rex? Its body length can reach about 15 meters, its head height is nearly 6 meters, and its weight can reach 9 tons. It is equivalent to a modern two-story building. Although Tyrannosaurus rex was not the largest existence in the dinosaur family at that time, its attack power was the most powerful.
Today’s earth is an era where mammals are the mainstream. Among the many types of mammals, when it comes to kings, many people think of tigers. Yes, we call the tiger the king of beasts and the king of the forest, which shows its position in the modern food chain. Although the lion is also called the king, in terms of combat effectiveness, the lion is far inferior to the tiger.
The strength of lions depends on the power of their gregariousness. We all know that lions live in groups, so lions hunt for food in groups and attack them. But the tiger is a lone ranger, and it preys with the powerful power of its human body. Therefore, if you are singled out, the lion is not the tiger’s opponent. Therefore, in the modern earth’s biosphere, the tiger is definitely the king.
Of course, modern tigers are far from being able to compare with Tyrannosaurus rex, so someone raised an interesting topic: If a tiger has the body shape and weight of a dinosaur, which one is stronger? If we send a tiger of the same size back to the age of the dinosaurs 65 million years ago, where the tiger and the Tyrannosaurus are facing each other, who will win in the end?
To understand this problem, we have to compare and analyze some data from various aspects. First of all, the ancestors of tigers are actually overlord, so who are the ancestors of tigers? In fact, it is the saber-toothed tiger. It lived in the Pleistocene period. The adult saber-toothed tiger was more than 3 meters long and weighed about 400 kg.
Although the saber-toothed tiger is much larger than the current tiger, it is still much worse than the Tyrannosaurus rex. Take weight as an example, 400 kilograms and 9 tons are not at the same level. If modern tigers also have a weight of 9 tons, can they beat Tyrannosaurus rex?
In the animal world, power is the king, as long as you have strong power can you defeat your opponents. But if it is a biological contest of the same level of strength, who can win, there will be more factors that need tigers. In addition to considering who has strong and weak defenses, we also need to consider who has more powerful offensive organs.
We all know tigers, they belong to the cat family, and cats are born with very good agility attributes. Many people like to keep cats. I believe everyone knows the agility of cats. Sometimes we see cats and dogs fighting. Although dogs are several times larger than cats, dogs can hardly take advantage of cats and dogs. Often bullied by cats.
No matter how strong it is, if you can’t beat the opponent, it’s no use. Tigers belong to the cat family and naturally have very flexible attributes. Even though its body has reached the same level as Tyrannosaurus Rex, it has an advantage over Tyrannosaurus in terms of flexibility. In fact, apart from flying in the sky, terrestrial dinosaurs are actually not very flexible.
In addition to the flexible properties of cats, they also have very sharp claws and strong biting teeth. Through these data, many people may say that once the Tyrannosaurus rex meets a tiger of the same weight, doesn’t it have any advantage? Can the tiger win the final victory?
In fact, the probability of a tiger winning is not great. Why do you say that? After reading the innate advantages of tigers, let’s look at the innate advantages of Tyrannosaurus rex. From the fossils of Tyrannosaurus rex found in modern archaeology, we can see that Tyrannosaurus rex has very strong bones and muscle tissues, which shows that its defensive power is very strong, which is incomparable to tigers.
The tiger’s defense power is actually not strong, and Tyrannosaurus rex has a strong explosive power, which is also the key to its ability to become the king of the dinosaur family. Although some herbivorous dinosaurs are much taller than the Tyrannosaurus, they will still lose in the face of the explosive Tyrannosaurus. The overlord becomes the king by relying on its attack power and explosive power.
Moreover, Tyrannosaurus rex also has very powerful teeth. In addition, Tyrannosaurus rex has an inherent advantage, that is, tall. Through dinosaur fossils, we can know that although dinosaurs have four limbs, they mainly rely on powerful hind limbs to walk, so they also have the initial advantage of walking upright, so the height of dinosaurs is very high.
The tiger is on all fours. Even if its weight has reached the same level as that of a dinosaur, its height cannot be compared with Tyrannosaurus rex. In this case, it would be more difficult for the tiger to bite the Tyrannosaurus neck during the duel. You should know that for a very strong defense like Tyrannosaurus, its weakness is actually above the neck.
If the tiger cannot bite the neck, it is difficult to cause much damage to the Tyrannosaurus rex. The powerful attack and explosive power of the Overlord Dragon can easily attack the tiger. If you find the right opportunity, the tiger may be finished with one bite. Through the comparison of these data, we can see that even if the tiger has the same weight as the Tyrannosaurus, it is difficult to defeat the Tyrannosaurus.
Of course, this is just some of our current simulation data conjectures. What is the age of dinosaurs? How mighty Tyrannosaurus rex is. It is difficult for us to truly restore that era through some modern dinosaur fossils. Unless we can study a time machine in the future, we can travel through time and space and return to the era of dinosaurs 65 million years ago. Only then can we truly understand the Overlord Dragon. Of course, whether the time machine exists is still unknown.
