A successful Tyrannosaurus birth is a rare event indeed. Aradia was the only one of her clutch to hatch, and our first tyrannosaur birth in eight years. Tyrannosaurus have intense parental care. Now two years old, Aradia is an inquisitive and energetic youngster. She seems to have an interest in people - she’ll often pay attention to visitors or any keepers near the exhibit.
Guests and staff alike adore her - as do her fiercely protective parents. They won’t even let the enrichment bots near her! Yes, everyone loves Aradia - except her older brother Ben. While intense parental care naturally wears off in tyrannosaurs at around the age of ten, Ben is seemingly not used to Aradia being the new center off attention. He often attempts to harass her, mostly by trying to steal food. Of course, the adults will have none of it, using parental veto to shut down any squabbles.
About the Species
C’mon, everyone knows Tyrannosaurus. Do I have to write this?
Wait I’m being paid how much for this? Alright.
Tyrannosaurus is the largest coelurosaur, among the largest predatory dinosaurs, and among the largest terrestrial predators of all time. It’s known from throughout North America at the very end of the Cretaceous. Tyrannosaurus is extremely robust - except, notoriously, for its arms. It has the largest bite force of any terrestrial animal, good vision and hearing, and a good sense of smell compared to other theropods. Tyrannosaurus grows rather similarly to humans, with a high burst of growth starting at around 11-12 lasting until the late teens. Need I say more, honestly?
Location at the Zoo
Aradia and her family can be found in the Royal Blood exhibit on the eastern side of the zoo.
