Bio

The proverbial King of the Dinosaurs, T. rex held the Chompion title for 100 years without dispute, from its naming in 1905 until Giganotosaurus was discovered and proposed as a challenger to the throne in 1995.  With 115 years of history, the largest predatory dinosaur teeth (dual serrations on each tooth no less!) and the strongest bite of any land animal, ferocious power in its legs (4’ 3” femur), solid speed and good maneuverability for such a giant animal, “The Chomp” is rightfully the number one seed in the tournament.
