Whoever heard of a vegetarian T. Rex?
Everyone knows that tyrannosauruses are big and scary, so when a placid duckbill dinosaur's egg ends up in the wrong nest confusion is sure to ensue! When the baby dinosaur hatches out, he's so out of place that his grisly big sisters call him Tyrannosaurus Drip.
Poor little Drip: all he wants is a quiet life munching on water weed . . .
