This T-Rex Battle Royale Makes Me Wish I'd Gone To Burning Man (Almost)

By Andrew Liszewski on at

If you’re secretly harbouring a Mad Max fetish, there’s yet another reason to spend a few days in the middle of the desert at Burning Man. Usually it’s hard for most of us to see the appeal of the festival, until you realise it includes the opportunity to watch a pair of T-rex battle inside a replica of Mad Max’s Thunderdome.

It’s unclear whether Tina Turner was overseeing this battle royale, but at the very least it’s a rare opportunity to see how the most famous dinosaur of all time used its tiny arms in combat. Apparently all those researchers and Jurassic movies were completely wrong, the T-rex did rely on baseball bats to take down its prey. Fascinating. [YouTube via Geekologie]
