Seen above in bone format, the T-Rex was clearly the third coolest dinosaur, just after the Triceratops and way, way behind Abydosaurus (who was clearly the coolest). So we’re good on that front: T-Rex? Pretty neat, even if they weren’t the most neat. Hence, while it would be way cooler to have a pet Tricerations or Abydosaurus, having a pet T-Rex would be pretty great as well.
With that settled: For the mad scientist looking for an ostentatious pet, this nifty infographic will help give you a better idea of what your pet lizard king might look like once you pull it from the vial.
Still no Abydosaurus, which didn’t even chew its food.
