T. Rex would've had lips, Toronto paleontologist says

So the original Tyrannosauruses may have actually had feathers and lips? So they looked like giant turkeys with lips? How goofy is that? Not so intimidating really.

"The available evidence would suggest that none of these animals - none of the theropod dinosaurs - should have their teeth sticking out of their mouths. They look more ferocious that way but that's probably not real."

A Tyrannosaurus rex may be normally depicted baring dozens of sharp teeth, but a Toronto researcher says the dinosaur likely had lips to cover them.

Reisz says only a few land animals, such as elephants and wild boars, have exposed teeth and these have no enamel.
