Many of you might remember the classic PC game 'Carnivores' 1 and 2, where the story is set on an alien world filled with dinosaur-like creatures. This alien planet's Tyrannosaurus is so powerful that ONLY a shot at the eye will hurt and kill her... any where else is 100% immune to your attacks! Recently I did a 'speed test' to see how fast the Carnivores version of Tyrannosaurus moved (both walking and running speeds).
Now in the game, for those that don't know, offers the player a binocular equipped with a distance (in feet) gauge for whatever animal is on your scope. I recorded myself playing the game in order to see how many seconds it took their Tyrannosaurus to walk x distance and later to reach me while running from x distance away. I then converted the feet per second to mph to get my answer... and boy none of our Earth-based dinosaurs would EVER want to mess with (what I'm calling) Tyrannosaurus imperatrex.... aka the Tyrant Lizard Empress!!!
Her walking speed is 24.5 mph, while her running speed is 74.5 mph!!!
UPDATE: I learned two things about Carnivores 2 Tyrannosaurus. 1--If you had a huge amount of bullets one could bring down this monster without hitting the eyes. 2--The Sniper Rifle in game is a 1960s Dragunov, which is not nearly as powerful as modern ones. Thus modern bullets and artillery can hurt/bring down this Tyrannosaurus imperatrix.
PS: The only Tyrannosaurus I know of (well, heard plenty of) that can resist artillery and modern fire is "The Isle's" Hyperendocrin Tyrannus or Hyper Rex for short! This monster has a bite damage so many times more powerful than a normal Tyrannosaurus rex it's at the Megalodon bite force level! Even Tyrannosaurus imperatrix here would fear this 'dinosaur from hell'.
