A photo of a Tyrannosaurus Rex, or more commonly known as T. Rex, tied to a trailer truck has been circulating around the internet.

Jonathan Chase, the one who originally posted the photos, expressed his concern about the mistreatment of the creature and said the creature was bound to a trailer, unable to move for 30 hours.

“Please help me raise awareness about this heinous injustice. Dinosaurs are animals too, and they deserve our love and care,” he calls out.

Clearly the post was just a joke. The dinosaur was obviously fake and even Jonathan knew it. It was only his way of saying something witty about what he witnessed— a trailer carrying a dinosaur used for the movie Jurassic World passes by his car.

But lots of the netizens believed that Jonathan thought dinosaurs existed and that the animal in the photo was fake.




This also “angered” some of the netizens who joined in on the joke.

T. Rex Autopsy

Meanwhile, the National Geographic Channel has a new show called T. Rex Autopsy.

This is a once-in-a-lifetime experiment conducted by a collaboration of esteemed veterinary surgeons, anatomists, and paleontologists.

This opportunity is said to offer viewers “unprecedented opportunity to explore questions such as whether or not T. rex had feathers; how it fed with those tiny arms; whether it was primarily a hunter or scavenger; how it digested food; how old it lived to be; how it procreated; and whether it was warm-blooded like a mammal or cold-blooded like a reptile.”

The experiment is done on a colossal specimen in a top secret location.
