Submission + - T. rex was relatively slow, lumbering animal (msn.com)

Lucas123 writes: "A new study found that the typical T. rex was a relatively slow animal running at no more than 25mph, 20 miles an hour slower than the 45mph we often seen depicted in movies such as Jurassic Park, and its inertia would have kept it from turning quickly — even slower than a human being. "We now know that a T. rex would have been front heavy, turned slowly and could manage no more than a leisurely jog," said team leader John Hutchinson of the Royal Veterinary College."
