Some dinosaurs were carnivores (meat-eaters) but most were herbivores (plant-eaters).
In any food chain, there has to be more organisms at the lower levels of the chain because the transfer of food energy is inefficient
and much of the energy is lost at each stage of the process.
Roughly 65 percent of the dinosaurs were plant eaters and 35 percent were meat-eaters (or omnivores).
Use the resources below to discover what type of eater the Tyrannosaurus Rex was and to find at least one example of something it ate.
