The discipline that studies dinosaurs is called paleontology: it is an extremely fascinating science that examines all the forms of life that have inhabited planet Earth, studies their evolution, their development and obviously their extinction.

The work carried out by the paleontologist is by far very interesting, because it tries to answer a series of questions still unresolved today. Thanks to research, it has been possible to reconstruct living things that disappeared millions and millions of years ago.

But that’s not all, because thanks to modern technologies, scientists were able to make enormous progress. This means that paleontologists around the world have been able to understand the behavior of dinosaurs, including their habits.

A discovery to say the least sensational: research on the presence of several species of T-Rex denied. What paleontologists say

Without a doubt one of the most studied specimens is the Tyrannosaurus Rex (or simply T-Rex). Its name comes from the Greek and literally means king of lizards.

The T-Rex is a carnivorous dinosaur and was estimated to be around 4 meters tall and weighed over 9 tons. But that’s not all, as it is able to run at a speed of 40 km/h to catch its prey in the jungle. Your favourites? Small herbivores.

A theory goes back a few months ago that there were three different species of T-Rex, identified with the names rex, queen, and imperator. To date, however, this research – as often happens – has been refuted by other scientists because it is based on too limited a sample.

The previous study assumed that the different dimensions of the fossils found could therefore be attributed to dissimilar species of T-Rex. These differences were enough for the authors of the research to state with certainty what was analyzed.

Today, research starts from the same starting point, but with a completely different end. According to paleontologists, the evidence reviewed in the first study is not sufficient to claim that there are three different species of Tyrannosaurus Rex.
