Allosaurus are of course from the Jurassic period, while Tyrannosaurus are from the late Cretaceous. These two groups of dinosaurs never existed at the same time.

Allosaurus died out about 145 million years ago. Tyrannosaurus first shows up in the fossil record about 68 million years ago.

Just look at those numbers for a second.

There have been no Allosauruses for 145 million years.

Tyrannosaurus didn't appear until 68 million years ago.

145 million. 68 million.

145 million minus 68 million is 77 million.

We, humans, are closer in time to the species Tyrannosaurus rex than Tyrannosaurus is to Allosaurus.

By nine. Million. Years.

That's about 1500 times as long as recorded human history.

The various dinosaurs held sway over the Earth for a long, long, long, long time.
