I have decided to make a series called "Dinosaur Duels." Every week (if I can), I will make a prehistoric fight. Some could have actually happened, some definitely could not have, but the point is, I'm going to have fun.
The First Episode is: Tyrannosaurus vs Triceratops
It was a cool morning in the Late Cretaceous of North America. Ichthyornis were flying silently overhead. Some animals were just waking up, while others were settling down to go to bed. Near a clump of tall conifers was a herd of Triceratops. It consisted of 10 females, 5 juveniles, and 1 bull. The bull was already up, watching over his herd carefully. The babies were playing with each other, and 2 young males were facing off, squealing and squeaking, then charging each other with blunt, little horns. This was practice for later in life. Nearby, in a thick clump of trees, was a pack of three, feathered Tyrannosaurus rex. Two of them were still asleep, but one was awake. It surveyed their territory carefully. It saw some small mammals scuttling into logs or holes in the ground, but they were nothing to worry about. Some small reptiles were crawling around in the trees, and an Ichthyornis had settled in a magnolia a bit of a way off. It saw no dinosaurs, but when it turned its head it let out a growl of satisfaction and hunger. There was a herd of 16, big, juicy Triceratops near some trees. The other two woke up around 9:00. Once they were all up, the Triceratops had already started to graze and eat. The Tyrannosaurus sized them up. It had to go for a female. That way the other two would scare the herd, they could draw her away, kill her, and then hurry off, as the bull was bound to try to get revenge. Their yellow eyes watched the Triceratops carefully. Around midday, another bull wandered into the area. He was a young sub-adult. He wanted to take control of the herd. He bellowed at the older bull. The older bull bellowed back and flushed blood into his frill, turning it scarlet. The young male did the same. They sized each other up, bellowing and roaring, and then charged. Their huge horns almost punctured the other's frill. They locked horns and viciously grappled, until the younger male conceded defeat and wandered toward the Tyrannosaurus. The tyrannosaurs hungrily watched come closer and closer, and, when the moment was right, they burst out of cover and roared an earth shaking roar. The Triceratops froze, and then went sprinting back to the herd a top speed, quills standing straight up on its back. On of the male tyrannosaurs had sliced the Trike's tail with his razor sharp teeth. The older bull saw the tyrannosaurs and bellowed with fear, excitement, and anger. He charged the tyrannosaurs head on. The tyrannosaurs were so shocked that their prey was actually fighting back that they stood dumbstruck for a moment. But they quickly recovered, and one male T-rex grabbed the animal by the back and flung him on the ground. The younger male Triceratops suddenly stabbed the tyrannosaur deep in the belly, and almost gored him. The tyrannosaur roared with pain, and tried to bite or claw the animal. The third took care of it, biting the Triceratopsmon the neck, slamming him on the ground, and was about to crush it's neck when the other male bellowed and almost stabbed him, just as the first Tyrannosaurus sank its teeth into the older bull's neck. The older bull squirmed and bellowed, blood seeping out of his neck and splattering onto the ground. But the Tyrannosaurus had a secret weapon: the flesh stuck in their teeth carried diseases, and when an animal is bitten, even if it manages to escape or possibly even kill the T-rex, it will die anyway because of the infection and blood loss. The younger and older bulls roar and bellow, but stand their ground. The second tyrannosaur is down, bleeding profusely from the belly. It's two on two now. The first handled the bull, while the third got the younger male. The old bull put up a very good fight, crushing their T-Rex's foot and almost goring him, viciou
sly snapping his beak down on the animal's skin; but he got so exhausted he retreated for a few seconds, and in that time the Tyarnnosaurus broke its neck by stomping on it. The younger male was about to turn tail and flee, but he wrapped the third Tyrannosaurus' leg with the quills, which stung. He was on the Triceratops in seconds, viciously ripping chunks of flesh away from the herbivore, biting down as hard as he could everywhere he could look that there was the Triceratops's skin (resulting in horrific injuries and broken bones), clawing everywhere, and, finished the job by slamming into him and lifting up the body,then slamming it down on the ground. The second tyrannosaur had died, but the other two cleaned up the Triceratops in few days.
Winner: TYRANNOSAURUS REX
Tyarnnosaurus rex simply won because it was more dangerous, it had a bone crushing bite, ripping claws, a powerful body, it was extremely strong, and the diseases didn't help. The tyrannosaur live to roar another day.
