  • Huge, strong and fierce, I would attack and eat any dinosaur around.
  • I had one of the strongest bites of any animal that ever lived.
  • 60 sharp teeth, some up to 20 centimetres long, meant I could easily crush thick bones.
  • Scientists think I hunted my prey or fed on already dead animals. I probably did both, I was just lazy sometimes...
  • I had very short arms – they did not even reach my mouth!
  • I could eat the equivalent of 1,500 sausages a day.
