Tyrannosaurs were power-walkers

You know, I always thought that dinosaur bipeds looked strikingly similar to kangaroos.

But picturing T-Rex hopping about makes me laugh!

There are people in this world who get paid for thinking about dinosaur butts? Damn. Probably gets a sabbatical every couple of years, too.

Maybe the dinos physical structure actually caused them to move with a hop.

Something similar to the “Kangaroo Hop” dance performed by Madelleine Kahn, Marty Feldman and Gene Wilder in “Sherlock Holmes’ Smarter Brother.”

Researchers theorize that one species of dinosaur controlled the rest. They call it the Georgesaurus.
