THE FASTEST DINOSAUR
According to computer models that were used to estimate the running speed of dinosaurs, the Tyrannosaurus Rex would have been able to outrun a footballer. The study showed that the dinosaur could reach a top (24)______ of 8 metres a second, which is fractionally faster than the average professional footballer. There has been a lot of controversy (25)______ whether the Tyrannosaurus Rex was a predator or a scavenger; some believe that its highly developed sense of smell indicates that it was scavenger, while others say that its keen eyesight shows that it was a hunter. The (26) ______ group will appreciate the recent study, as a hunter is more likely to require such speed.
The University of Manchester study used a powerful supercomputer to calculatc the running speed of fivc-mcat eating dinosaurs and used data taken dircctly from dinosaur fossils, rather than referring to previous work on modern animals. The Tyrannosaurus Rex, however, was not the fastest dinosaur. A small dinosaur (27) ______ Compsognathus, which was about the size of a chicken, could run at 18 metres a second, which is faster than ostrich, the fastest two-legged animal today. It could run 100 metres in a little over six seconds, which would leave modern Olympic (28) ______ more than a third of the track behind.
