It walked on strong, high hind legs, keeping its horizontal and wide torso in balance using its short and heavy tail. Its arms were extremely small. It attacked its prey with its large heavily-built head. Armed with long teeth and heavy muscles, the jaws could exert a massive bite force. Tyrannosaurus hunted for large herbivorous dinosaurs.
