One of the most popular things across the internet and all of pop culture concerning dinosaurs is how much people tend to make fun of the Tyrannosaurus Rex and his short little forelimbs that look more like tiny arms dangling uselessly from the front of the massive beast. You may have heard jokes before about how the T-Rex is unable to give hugs or terrible as doing pushups.
These jokes and others like them stem from the true fact that the T-Rex had small underdeveloped forelimbs. However, these limbs were not actually useless and contained large claws on each one that could be used to the dinosaur’s advantage. T-Rex may have looked funny the way its body was built but it was a dangerous beast that treated almost every other dinosaur as prey for its next meal.
