The Lost World: Jurassic Park
Tyrannosaurs
Special Edition

By: BJP3E


Prologue
One Big Family
The adult tyrannosaurs stood proudly over their small infant of only two weeks age. They were very fortunate to even have him. Months before they started out with four eggs, but one had been lost at the claws of a clever thief and the other two simply did not hatch. Their little one was happily trudging about the inside the giant nest of mud and brush. Snarling and biting at the flies that buzzed in swarms about him.
Their infants present food supply and parasaurolophus was growing rather rotten at the moment. They had dragged it a few yards away from the nest and the flies swarmed in by the millions to it. It was time for them to hunt for food for themselves on the young one. The female walked over to carcass and sniffed the animal looking for a descent bit meat and then ripped free a bony piece of meat from the animals hide. She swung back over the nest and dropped it in front of the infant, gruffly purred and then walked off. The male took stride behind her and looked back at the baby. He snorted his approval and turned back towards his mate. The infant watching as they vanished deep in the jungle around them.
The tyrannosaurs walked one behind the other through the jungle, the female leading. She was the better hunter of the two. They would spend maybe a couple hours at most away from their nest. Thus they constantly left heavy scent markers around a large area surrounding the nest that would surly make any other animal move off in fear of encountering on of them.
The tyrannosaurs trekked for a number of miles till they came to the river than ran through much of the islands center. The river more often than not was the best chance at locating a large herd of animals. As was hoped in a large grassy field on the opposite bank they slowly approached a herd of 20 fast runners, the gallimimus, an ostrich like animal. They were rather small to overall stomach of the tyrannosaurs but would be more than adequate for their infant to chew on. Under the concealment of the foliage they spent several minutes simply watching the animals as they drank from the river or simply stood as lookouts. They were studying the herd one animal at a time. Looking for the best targets, the younger less weary, the slower old ones, or the injured.
Finally they each found separate targets to chase down. With a mad rush they burst from hiding and thrashed through the water after the fleeing herd of gallies.

Kidnapped
It was around an hour after the infants parents had left that the baby rex saw two strange bipedal animals approaching the nest watching him. The infant unaware of the dangers these creatures posed continued to naw upon the remains of his meal barely watching them. The bipedal animals sat crouched for a few minutes conversing to each other. The infant continued to disregard their presence.
The infant felt something sting him in his hind leg. He jumped yelping and then turned to bite at whatever had bit him. He pulled a small, hard, cold object from his leg and proceed to try and crush it in his jaws. But something was wrong. He felt funny, weak. His eyes began to lose focus. Then his legs began to give out from under him. He tried to force himself still but began to waver off to one side and slumped to the ground in a daze. Still vaguely aware of his surroundings he watched and the two creatures creped over the nest and came towards him. Then he blacked out.
One hour later the tyrannosaurs returned with the fresh kill of a gallimimus dangling from the mouth of the male. As they neared the nest they both noted an odd scent still faint in the air, a scent vaguely familiar to them both. The scent of man. The male dropped the prey and they rushed forward to the nest. It was empty. The scent of man still clung heavy here. The female roared, as did the male. They stuck their heads high into the air and bellowed for their infant to call to them. There was no cry from the infant. Closer examination of their nest they found that there had been little to no struggle, and that there was no blood. It could not be possible that their only infant would have wondered off. They now only had one thought running through their tiny brains. Their baby was missing and they would find and destroy whomever or whatever took him. The female bellowed again and began sniffing the air. She caught the scent trail left by the man creatures.

Injured
It was late in the day the sky was slowly turning red as the sun started to set. The infant was waking up. Looking around he found himself alone in the middle of a small clearing. Righting himself he tried to get up. He stumbled around before falling down again. He was still feeling dizzy. Then he noticed that something was holding him by his neck. It was cold and wet. The infant tugged at it with his jaws but it would not release him. He stood up again hissing and growing trying to pull himself free of his captor. It was no use he was too weak yet and he slumped to the ground panting.
The infant rested his head on the ground and closed his eyes. He listened to the sounds of the jungle around him and then heard the voices of the creatures that had taken him from his home. They were close by. H raised his head and searched for them. He scanned around foliage around him but saw nothing even though he could hear them. H looked up in the trees that surrounded him. He suddenly saw the faintest of movement but too little to track. The voices were coming from that tree though. First he hissed and growled then he let out a shrill cry for help and he cried out over and over for the next several hours.
The infant continued his wailing cries as a biped stumbled into the clearing. The infant continued the cry out as he watched it make its way awkwardly to the tree that hid his captors. The biped creature was calling to on of the others. A moment later he saw one of them jump down from the tree.
The infant became still and quiet as they approached him. The smaller of the two was carrying something with him that shined in the light. Some kind of dark fluid sloshed around in it. This one creature was behaving rather oddly moving in jerky motions and the other seemed upset by him. The one who had taken him from the nest was growing more irate by the other and briefly they yelled at one another. They both confronted each other standing face-to-face exchanging words though the smaller one had trouble keeping his balance. He pointed in the infantís general direction and waved his hand at it mumbling things to the other creature. The one was still growing more disgusted by the other. And was waving him off as if trying to tell him to leave. But the odd one pushed at his captor unfazed.
Apparently having had enough of what ever was going on between the two, his captor waved him off and began walking away. The smaller one set down the liquid he carried and attempted to go after him now but when he tried to pivot on his heals it was too much for him and he lost his balance and began to stumble backwards. Hitting a stone with the back of his heal he fell landing on the infants right leg.
The infant yelped in pain and began howling as his captor came over and picked up the small one. He pushed him away from the infant and it stumbled away out of site. His captor turned to him, studied him for few moments, then shook his head and went back up the tree. The infant howling still looked to its leg and saw it was bleeding a little bi around the lower half of his leg. And the feeling in his leg seemed to be going away a little bit. The pain was going dissipating but only from the shock of the injury.
The infantís cries grew more intense.

Rescued
The infant had been captive for a few hours now. The sky had grown dark and the infant, hurt, cold, and hungry continued crying for his parents. They had yet to come for him. The two men had been watching all this time still never moving from the tree. What they wanted from he did not know.
Infant became still and silent when the bellow of a triceratops was heard followed by shout from dozens of men. The infant could not see what was happening. Then a loud explosion erupted and what for a moment appeared to be a ball of fire shot high in the air and came rushing down to the tree the two men were in. The men jumped clear as the object crashed in the tree and then to the ground. The infant watched as the two men ran in the direction of the commotion.
A few minutes passed. The infant heard the chatter of the men still going on from a distance when a lone figure approached him. The infant began to cry again as the man tugged at the chain. The man pulled the spike clear of the ground and then picked the infant of in his arms and ran off with him. The infant wriggled in the mans arms as it cried. The man took the infant through the jungle and then down a small stream a ways before climbing a small embankment. Here the infant saw yet another person along side a large object. The new human opened a door and the man set the infant inside the car.
The infant thrashed some about inside the car crying still. The two people driving chattered feverishly amongst themselves. The ride in the car lasted a good 30 or more minutes. Looking out the window the infant watched at the car came to a stop in a small clearing.
The people left the car and the infant still struggling was pulled from the car. The infant now found itself in side a large strange smelling room with weird sound and light along with two more people. One of the human became distressed at the sight of the infant and the smaller one seemed agitated by him as well. The infant cried out as the man placed the infant on a cold table at the back of the room. Then man removed something from his waste and began rapping it around the infantís mouth. Then the infant felt something prick him in his hindquarters.
With in moments nothing in the world seem to be wrong to the infant it watched as two of the people left while the other two hung over him looking at his leg. The infant groaned as they continued to mess with his leg but he could not struggle. What ever had poked him made him not want to. Eventually the people began wrapping something around his injured leg and the infant just groaned.
Even in the rain that was coming down now he tyrannosaurs finally had gotten a good scent trail of their lost infant and were rushing through the jungle as fast as they could go. The bull let out a roar of warning to all those in their way that rung through air. They plowed through the over growth knocking trees from their way. In their mad rush they never noticed the individuals in the trees above them.
The scent of their infant grew stronger with each step until they entered a clearing where they stopped a moment looking at what stood before them. In the clearing say a small vehicle along side a large box structure. The things did not move and had a strange smell. The female slowly stepped up to the smaller car. Sniffed it and then razing her head she swung back down striking the car broadside and sending rolling several times and then falling over a cliff. The male then walked up along the opposite of the larger object, while the female moved along the other. The male peered through a window on the side and saw the infant laying there and standing around it were three humans. The female saw this two and growled in anger. Neither tyrannosaur dared to doing anything though as they feared the humans may hurt their infant as a result.
They growled at the people inside the trailers. They wanted their baby. The infant saw his parents moving around outside and started groaning again. The people inside the van still clung tight to the walls for a moment before they moved and picked up the infant from the table. The female growled as she watched them carry her baby. Thy followed the infant near to the mid section of the RV and the female watched as a door swung open. The male also came around to the other side as their infant was released. The female sniffed at her infant a few times as it coed and nudge her snout. With a nude the female pushed the infant in a direction away from the trailers. The infant moved off with a slight limp and the adults followed close behind.
A little ways into the jungle the tyrannosaurs stopped in checked on the infant again to be sure it was all right. The female purred as it watched the infant. The male looked back in the direction of the trailers now growling. The female nudged the infant into a bush were it lay curled up and quiet. Then the tyrannosaurs went back for the trailers.
With rage poring through them the rushed the rear trailer. The female truck first ramming the side with the full force of her body the male right behind her stuck the trailer with a foot and they tipped it over in its side. They both struck again pushing the rear trailer on to its roof. They roared at the trailer knowing that the human still were inside. They moved to the front trailer now and both rammed their snouts through front windshield as they began to push on the trailer with the weight of their bodies. They maneuvered the trailer as they pushed it towards the cliff. The male roared as he rammed the trailer on last time and the other half slipped over the ledge.
The female was going to start pushing again when it turned it attention back to where they had hid the infant. She smelled something new coming this way near to were the infant lay hidden.
Only moments after returning to their baby they saw another small car through the jungle race by down the muddy path. They stayed with the infant reassuring its safety. After a couple minutes went back to the trailers they would take no chances.
Upon returning to the trailers they found the little car was trying to help pull the trailer back away from the cliff. This was not good to them and they walked right to either side of the car. Looking through the window they saw yet another man. These pests were all over the island it seemed.
The bull stepped back and then bit down on some bars on the back of the car and with little effort ripped them and the roof clear. The car kept on trying to pull the trailers as they tore away at the car doors. The man that was inside the car was crouched down along the seats and floor and trying to pull free some kind of stick. The male bent his head down jaws open the man screamed and kicked at him. The tyrannosaur clamped down on his leg and lifted him up out of the car. The tyrannosaur tossed the man into the air and spun him around clamping down this time around the mans midsection and the screams stopped. The female then went for the legs that dangled from his jaws and the man was rip in two. They chomped down the man and watched as the trailers slid over the cliff taking the remains of the car with it.
With the threat killed off they returned to their infant and then made their way back to their nest.

The Scent
The infant was safe back in the nest both adults lay sleeping around the outside of the nest. The infant lay curled in a ball in the center of the nest. They had been through a great ordeal the other day and were happy to be home together safe.
A nice cool breeze started blowing through jungle shortly after midday and a familiar scent came with it. The females jerked her had up in sudden surprise looked at were her infant lay. She saw it moving some still sleeping though. She sniffed the air several times then started to get to her feet at which the male awoke. The male confused by his mateís actions suddenly understood her concern. Flowing through the breeze was the scent of their infant.
How this was possible they had no idea. They only knew it was their infants familiar scent and it was coming from miles away to the islands interior. Yet they only had one infant and he was back safe with them. They looked to each other then the infant and began grumbling in confusion. There was something wrong in their tiny mind. How can their infant be right there in front of them and yet they suddenly are picking up the scent of their infant from mile way. An overwhelming paternal instinct began to surface telling the tyrannosaurs to seek out the scent of their infant that was coming from the interior. Could there some how be another?
The tyrannosaurs again studied their infant sleeping in the nest, then the air. The urge to seek the scent out was becoming too great. There was something not right about it they had to find out what it was. Even though they had only just reclaimed their infant they took off in search of what was causing the scent.
The tyrannosaurs walked at a steady uninterrupted pace. It was not long before the trail led them close to where they had found their infant the other night. Another scent caught their attention as well, man, and lots of them. Had massed here and then went off into the islands interior. The female growled between her teeth as she looked off in the direction the men had gone. These pests were becoming a big problem in their lives. They set off following the trail left by the men.
Then men had a long lead over them but they would follow the trail until they were found. If these men had a baby of theirs they would take it back with full force. They travel through the day never stopping and on several occasions spooked up animals they would have otherwise chased down as food. They passed carrion making compies scatter in fright. They were not stopping until thy found the source of the scent for anything.
Night fell upon the island and the tyrannosaurs still tracked the scent moving further inland still.
The scent of the infant as well as men was becoming stronger with each mile.
By mid night the tyrannosaurs were upon the menís camp and the scent of the baby was there someplace. They began to approach the men slowly. The male lead the way. When the bull enter the outer edge of the camp. The female stayed back for the time being. Moving towards a little tent he stopped briefly sniffing the air. It was coming from the tent.
The tyrannosaur moved around the tent and nudged the front of it with his snout. It was open and gave way as he slowly stuck his snout inside sniffing the air. The tyrannosaur saw no infant and heard no calls of one but a small object lay strung along a wire. The scent was coming from that. Then the tyrannosaur sniffed the strange objects on the ground before him. There was a muffled noise for a second then it stopped. Inside of the tent smelt of man but there was no movement. The tyrannosaur continued to sniff around curious.
A sudden scream echoed from the camp.
The bull jerked away in surprise taking the tent with him. He swung up sending the tent flying way as the female rushed the camp roaring. Men were running in every direction screaming at the top of their lungs. So many in fact that this confused the tyrannosaurs enough they did not know who to go after first. The female roared and then chased after a group of men that had fled down a path. The male still trying to understand why the scent was there roared at some other men who ran off in other directions. With them gone the male poked around the site again.
The female however was chasing after several men down a trail roaring at the top of here lungs. The men were yelling and every time one of them turned to her while running she would be stung some. But it did not stop her. One of the men in the middle of the group tripped and fell in a puddle but the tyrannosaur ignored it and simply stepped on it as she chased the rest of them. Even when the thing stuck to her foot she did not loose her pace. The thing peeled clear of her foot after a couple steps.
At one point sever low hanging branches got in her way slowing her pursuit but then she just tore through the natural blockade like it was paper. She roared as the men ran under a small waterfall. She stopped only a couple seconds and then stuck her head through the falls. The water splashed across her face making it to hard to see anything move. With her had in as far as she could go she opening her mouth and stuck her tongue out. She flapped it around trying to taste for any of the men. She snorted went she ran the very tip of her tongue along on of them.
To her surprise something landed in her mouth and she instinctively clamped down and pulled it clear from the falls and quickly got a better hold by chomping down on it. She then walked off swallowing man. As she moved into the jungle something ran off in front of her. With all the excitement of the chasing she took off after it.

Captured
The bull rex rummaged around the remnants of the menís camp. He knew his mate would fine going alone after the pests. There was no infant here. It was still safe back at the nest now; they had been smelling was something else that was like him. He growled to himself and sniffed the grounds. Shaking his massive bulk he leaned down to have a drink of water. The tyrannosaur lapped up the rainwater unaware a bald man was slowly approaching him from the left side.
The tyrannosaur continued to drink until it felt a sudden sting in its backside. Roaring the tyrannosaur looked in the direction the stinger had come from and saw the man stepping away. Enraged the rex began to move towards the man. With each step the tyrannosaur picked up a little more speed but the man did not run. Instead he slowly backed away while fumbling with a stick of some kind.
Before the tyrannosaur reached the man he was pointing the stick at him again and the tyrannosaur felt another ting this time in his neck. The tyrannosaur was suddenly feeling groggy. His movement resembling that of a drunken man trying to walk with every bit of effort the tyrannosaur could muster it tried to keep his balance as he moved towards the man.
The tyrannosaur collapsed his massive body causing the ground the shake as it slid forward along the ground. His snout came to rest only a few feet from the man. The tyrannosaurs eyes glazed over. With one last heavy exhale the world went dark.
Maybe only thirty minutes went by before the rex was awakened still heavily sedated. The tyrannosaur was unable to move other than its eyes even though its vision was blurred now. It was confined in large restraint cage. It watched has dozens of men ran around him shouting. One of then men sat down close to him but he could not move even though he wanted to. Another man briefly confronted him and then thy both moved off. The tyrannosaur noticed an odd sound emanating from above now. A huge blurry object was slowly descending from above. A large flyer of some kind?
It was a helicopter. Several cables were quickly dropped from the sides of this noisy bird. And then men began attaching them around the restraint cages floor. After a few minutes the tyrannosaur was be air lifted above the tree line. The tyrannosaur was sleeping again as it reached the beach.
At the rex nest the infant was recovering from its injuries still when several forms surrounded it shining bright beams of light at it. The baby hissed and growled at them but they did not flee. Instead two of the men tossed a net over the infant.
The baby howled calling for help as it was dragged away again from its home once again.

Special Cargos
It was late in the night, the tyrannosaur slept soundly at the moment atop the deck of the S.S. Venture, a cargo ship. Confined to the cramped holding cage the tyrannosaur could only move his useless arms and his tail a little, which felt sluggish from heavy dose of tranquilizer running through him. The tyrannosaur groaned trying to open his mouth. But several straps held it down.
Time seemed to go by slowly to the tyrannosaur. It watched with blurred vision as men went about the boat stopping at looking at time every once in a while. The tyrannosaur did not like this helpless feeling and was beginning to stress.
On of the men seemed to spot the distress coming from the tyrannosaur as it approached him. The tyrannosaur suddenly began to convulse in quick jerky movements it groaned in pain and began to drool heavily. His eyes started rolling to back of his head. The man ran to a supply box and pulled out a gun, then after a moment fired a dart into the tyrannosaurs neck. A large portion of the ships crew began to mass around the tyrannosaur now.
The tyrannosaur seemed to settle after a minute but suddenly he began snorting and shacking his body. The straps that once held his mouth shut suddenly began to snap from the pressure of his massive jaws opening and then letting out a roar of rage. The rex bucked his head back again the bars bending them with each hard hit. Suddenly the bar gave way from its supports and was knocked away nearly hitting a number of the crew. The tyrannosaur began to thrash about wildly bending the bars apart more and more giving him more room to move. The crew began stepping away
The man who had shot him was running back to the box as the tarp and more straps began to tear apart. The tyrannosaur using the force of his hind legs began to try and push up with his back against the bars now and roared even louder as they began to pull free. The crew was panicked running for places to hide.
The tyrannosaur broke free of his restraints and roared at the fleeing men. He turned his attention to the man trying desperately to load the gun. Two steps and the tyrannosaur was on him and picked him up and tossed him over his head out into the ocean. The tyrannosaur began chasing after the other crew still topside. One after another his would pick a man up and either toss them over board or slam them down onto the deck.
One man ran to one side of the steel beast and pick up something from the ground. A large mouth began to open in thee center of the beast. The skipper of the boat who had been hearing all the commotion finally put the ship on autopilot and went out the side door and saw the tyrannosaur drop the man who had opened the cargo bay doors. He watched as a small number of remaining men simply jumped ship in shier panic. Dumbfounded the skipper stood there staring at the dinosaur. The tyrannosaur was looking right at him. It roared as the man ran back inside the small cabin. The tyrannosaur ran up to the cabin just as the man was trying to radio the main land. He roared at the man the sound ear splitting inside the cabin. The man drooped the CB and screamed as the tyrannosaur poked his snout into the archway. The tyrannosaur opened his mouth hot breath fogged the windows.
The tyrannosaur was just out of reach of the man and he snapped his jaws shut and tried pushing further into the cabin. The man with his back to the wall through a mug at the tyrannosaur but it did nothing but make the tyrannosaur roar at him. Screaming at the top of his lungs the man began to kick at the tyrannosaur hitting it in the nose several times enraging the animal. The tyrannosaur kept trying to close its jaw around the man foot with each kick and finally succeeded. The man grew wide-eyed and screamed in pain and horror as the tyrannosaur began to pull him slowly from the cabin. The grabbed a hold of ships steering wheel and tried holding on by wrapping an arm around the wheel. He also began trying to reach for the auto pilot switch to stop the boat from reaching the mainland. With fingers only inches from the switch the man felt a sudden hard tug and then another and was ripped from the wheel. The man briefly saw he was dangling upside down in the air and had time to see his right hand was missing past the wrist joint. The man suddenly was lifted in to the air and he saw the massive jaws of the tyrannosaur rushing at him.
It was now quiet on the top of this steel beast. Looking around the tyrannosaur saw no moment. The tyrannosaur walked around the deck stopping by the large cargo bay doors. It looked down into the darkness. Something clanged down in the hold. The tyrannosaur went down inside to look. Once down at the bottom the tyrannosaur made its way to the far wall. A sudden grinding was heard and the bay doors began to close. The tyrannosaur was caught off guard and was trapped below deck
The tyrannosaur roared in anger.
Confined to a cage filled with hey and a muzzle over its mouth the infant lay cowering on the floor of the cage. It was stuck inside some big noisy thing flying over the ocean. He had been in it for several hours, though its still dark out.
Finally the infant noticed the feeling dropping as the craft began to slow and drop slowly though it was in a cage it could see light become brighter by the minute. The craft made a few zero degree turns and touched down.
Moments later a few men were pulling his cage clear of the craft. The infant looked around as they carried him into a large structure lit by several small floodlights. They set him down and then on of the men put a long stick through the bars of his cage and poked him with the end of it. The infant tried to pull it away but could not with muzzle on him. The world seemed to grow calm quickly though and the infant lay down.

second chunk

The Concrete Jungle
The tyrannosaur still confined inside the cargo hold stood in the center waiting for something, anything to happen now, and something did. The ship suddenly shuddered loud cracks and bangs rang through the hold. The ship came to sudden halt and the tyrannosaur was thrown clear off his feet towards the front of the hold. The tyrannosaur landed hard on the floor in a daze.
The sounds of the doors trying to opening woke brought the tyrannosaur out of his daze. Then he hear shouting coming from people. He hung close to the giant doors waiting for them to open up. Men continued to shout and then the doors began to rise.
The tyrannosaur burst upwards roaring and sending the doors flying open. Several people ran for cover. The tyrannosaur walked shacking itself off to debris covered ramp roaring at the people. As he stepped down a couple of them jumped for the water and he snapped at them half heartedly. He was more intent on getting away from everything. Looking for the most obvious way away from here the tyrannosaur began walking almost casually out of the harbor. As he approached the exit two more men fled from him. A sign over the exit stood in his way but h simple busted it apart with a swipe of his head. He walked over to a large pile of rock sticking out of the water and looking out across the water he roared at the strange jungle that stood far out before him.
He walked off not sure were to go.
After several minutes of walking mostly undisturbed save for the occasional animal with bright lights for eyes whom would turn and fleet at sight of him found himself wondering around numerous buildings which rather reminded of the similar ones back on his island home. He wanted water and was sniffing his way around the buildings. He smelled something that seemed like it might be water and turned down a street. Walking a block he turned and walked between two of the buildings. The tyrannosaur scratched at his jaw as he went to the back.
There was water here all right but it smelled unlike water he had drunk before. Walking right through a small barrier he stepped up the large pond. It glowed funny to, light coming from down in the water. He sniffed around a moment then tested the water with his tongue. Figuring it was safe to drink even though it tasted odd he lapped up the water. A small goofy looking animal tethered to a box suddenly appeared and began to bark at him. The tyrannosaur growled at it and it whimpered and hid inside a box. The tyrannosaur continued to drink then a desire for food set in. He went after the little animal hiding in the box.
As he was eating the little animal there was a sudden flash of light from the building he was standing by he roared at were the flash came from letting the chain and box fall to the ground. Snorting the tyrannosaur quickly turned and walked off. The tyrannosaur was still hungry the small animal he had just eaten was not even remotely close to what he needed. He set off in search of a large food supply.
Venturing deeper though jungle of buildings and streets the tyrannosaur found himself looking down a long street filled with lights and a continuous trail of the animal with lights for eyes traveling in either direction. He had gotten a taste of one back home and they were not edible. But the things they carried inside were. He thought about going after one since he could tear them apart so easy when he noticed dozens of bipeds moving about. Man, easy food. The tyrannosaur left the safety of cover and began moving down the street.
The infant on the other hand was stuck inside a cold cage. He lay there sedated still hardly moving when he heard something approaching him. He did not look up to see what it was he didnít care. Suddenly two faces appeared before him one more familiar than the other, from back on the island. One of them opened his cage and then began pulling him out. He didnít struggle, as he was too weak yet. The familiar human held on to him once they were seated and then they drove off with him.
Running down the middle of the street the tyrannosaur roared at anything that moved. There were some many things running around he was not sure what to bring down. Many of the people fled for cover in buildings. The animals with lights fore yes were panicking so much they were running into each other and flipping.
At an intersection the tyrannosaur stopped and gnawed on a pole. He tugged at it until he saw something very big come from around another corner. He pulled free the piece he had in his mouth and trotted after the large thing. Dropping the piece of tasteless metal he trotted up along side the long white creature and roared at it. He saw several people moving around inside. He moved closer to the front and swung his had full force into the side of the creatures face crippling it. The animal swerved and then kept on going until it ran into a building.
Several more people appeared on an adjacent street and the tyrannosaur went after them. They people were such easy targets but which one to take down. The tyrannosaur began snapping wildly into a group of people when one of then veered of to his left. The tyrannosaur turned to go after him. Before the man reach safety though the tyrannosaur snatched him up in his jaws. The man screamed and wriggled in his mouth as he pulled him back. A second quick chomp and the mans screamed began to die away. The tyrannosaur dropped his catch and placed a foot over it to hold it down while he ate.
The tyrannosaur finished his meal and began his hunt again. As he walked down the street scanning for food he heard something very familiar crying out. He quickly turned growling at were the source of the sound came from. He moved across a lot knocking over a large red object that rolled under a canopy. As he ducked under the canopy a car began to speed away and he hard the cry again. It was the call of his infant. The tyrannosaur roared as he cleared the canopy and ran after the car knocking aside a stationary car without care.
The tyrannosaur ran as fast as he could but the car managed to stay ahead of him. He roared in anger as his infant cried for him. The car made several turns the tyrannosaur never taking his eyes off it. Nothing was distracting him from catching that car. The tyrannosaur pursed the car into a place filled with giant buildings back near the waterfront were he had originally left from.
As the rex passed by one of the buildings several more car appeared flashing lights. He roared at them unfazed. The car fled and he continued the chase. H saw the car holding his infant veer off and go through the wall of one of the buildings. Running full force he ran through the same wall just as the humans and infant vanished through a small opening in on of the far walls.
Cut off bow from his infant the tyrannosaur took off down through the building and ran out the large opening at the end. He ran around the building and found himself running along a dock and up ahead was the steel beast that had held him for some time. He heard his infants faint cries again coming from the bowls of the beast.
The infant stretched his jaw having finally had the muzzle removed. The two people had run off but he spotted a lone man walking down the ramp towards him. He growled trying to be as fierce as possible but the man still approached him. The infant growled and backed away as the man came closer. The infant hid not like this man at all. He was the very one who had hurt him before.
The man was so focused on the infant he did not realize the bull was walking down the ramp. When the tyrannosaur reached the floor the infant scampered passed the man and over to his parent. The man became distressed backing away stumbling around boxes and then trying to run up a set of stairs. The infant watched as his parent caught him by a leg and pulled him from the steps. Biting down hard first the tyrannosaur then dropped the man. The man tried to get up but he simply pushed him with his snout knocking him back down. The tyrannosaur gave the infant a look of encouragement and the infant jumped on the man.
Watching his infant make his first kill the tyrannosaur heard shout from above and a loud thumping sound. He stood a moment listening as they grew louder. Suddenly the mouth began closing again. The tyrannosaur went up to the mouth as it was close to shutting and felt something sting him in his neck. Roaring he backed off down the ramp again. Suddenly tired the tyrannosaur lied down and fell asleep.
The infant suddenly grew tired himself now that everything was calming down. He picked at his kill once more and then walked over to his sleeping parent. Curling up next to him closing his eyes. The infant barely noticed when the ship began to move again a short while later.



Home
The tyrannosaur awakened slowly. The world before him was a dark haze at first. Then slowly it blinked its yellow eyes even in the dark the tyrannosaur could see where he was. He was in the belly of the steel swimming beast again. It vaguely recalled a creature shooting something at it. He could still feel the thing that had stung it in its neck.
The tyrannosaur lay still on one side breathing slowly moving one tiny eye around looking. It saw its infant curled up in some nets next to its head. It was sleeping soundly. He saw the remains of the infantís first kill lying in a mess on the floor, flies buzzed around it, looking up it could see the huge mouth of the steel beast was closed.
He yawned opening his huge mouth groaning. He rolled on to his belly; the ship creaked under its weight. The infant woke at this movement and watched as its giant parent lifted itself up from the floor. He growled up to his parent. The tyrannosaur looked down at the infant as it stretched its body and legs out and then shook its bulky body.
The tyrannosaur stood there unmoving for a moment as the infant then got up. It watched as the infant hobbled around for a moment due to the strange object still rapped around its right leg. Then the tyrannosaur turned its attention back to the closed mouth. It cocked its head side to side as if listening for something.
From the inside of the ship it suddenly heard the sounds of strange noises it was not familiar with. Along with other noise made much like this creature made as it swam. Then it caught the sounds of waves crashing.
A loud grinding sound echoed in the hull startling the animals and the tyrannosaur roared in surprise as the mouth of the beast slowly opened letting the sun shine down on them both.
When the mouth stopped moving the tyrannosaur stood still again for a few moments looking up into the blue sky. It could see strange noisy creatures moving in slow circles high above it. It moved up the ramp and stood atop the giant steel beast. It slowly looked around growling to itself. A number of the same creatures sat floating atop the ocean only bigger than the one it now stood on. It saw that land was sitting right up along side the beast. It had come to a rest along the side of a small cliff ledge. The beast rose up and down slowly in the water. It turned and looked back down into the belly of the beast were the infant still stood looking curiously at him.
The tyrannosaur made a low bark like call and the infant scampered up the ramp to him making grunting noises. The tyrannosaurs looked down at its infant standing by it legs waging its tail happy. It growled once at the infant and then it stepped lightly from the ship on to land and then turning back to face the infant again and then again making the bark like call.
The infant stood there for moment looking at the floor of the ship then the land. It seemed scared by the ship and the land moving in different directions. The adult called to its infant again. The infant starred up at him and then howled.
Somewhat annoyed the tyrannosaur growled and then set its head down over the railing on the deck opening its giant mouth. The infant stepped inside the gaping mouth and then the tyrannosaur rose back up and set it head back down again on land were the infant stepped away.
A moment later the giant beast that once held them groaned to life and began pulling away from the ledge heading back out to sea. It watched as the other creatures to began pulling away as well and the flying creatures circled a few more times before they to turned away flying high above them.
The tyrannosaur let out a bellowing roar in the direction of the ships. Then it turned and began walking into the jungle the infant staying close behind it.

Reunited
The tyrannosaurs traveled quickly through the jungle. Animals came out from hiding as the tyrannosaurs moved through the jungle. But the tyrannosaurs paid no attention to them. The tyrannosaur was more interested now in the idea of locating its mate. The infant continued to follow along running in that its parent made in the thick brush as it moved along.
After a few minutes of nonstop walking the adult stopped rising itís snout into the air sniffing deeply. The infant looked up at the questioning eyes of his parent. He whined and ran around the legs of the adult getting in front of him. But then the tyrannosaur suddenly moved again stepping over itís infant almost like it didnít even know it was there.
For another ten minute the two tyrannosaurs quickly traveled through the jungle ignoring all else. The infant barely kept up with the adult, and its constant whines did not help slow it down either. The infant knew his parent had caught cent of something and that it would not stop moving now until it located it.
The tyrannosaurs burst from the jungle back out in the bright morning sun. They now stood just outside the jungle overlooking a large open area of grass and scattered trees. Across the way near the middle of the clearing stood the adults mate. She was standing along side some trees watching a herd of stegosaurs moving along near the other side of the field.
He roared upon sight of her and began moving across the field towards her the infant right behind him. The stegosaurs briefly glanced. In the direction of the tyrannosaurs but did not grow worried of the approaching animals the just continued to move calling to each other once in a while.
The two adult tyrannosaurs met face to face and nudge one another a moment with their snouts, the infant cooing below them happy. They purred to each other placing their heads together as a sign of greeting. Then they stepped apart to watch the infant as it hoped up and down. The mother rex gently nudged her infant bumping him to the ground. The infant kicked in the air pawing at her then got back up growling excitedly.
The male looked up when shadows passed overhead. There were a few flying creatures circling the area. One glided up to a dead tree fifty yards away and perched itself their. Closing itís wing slightly it let out a screeching cry.
Both tyrannosaurs continued to watch their infant play. Now though the mother finally noticed the strange object on the infants right leg. It did recall seeing it once when they recovered the infant from the little creatures. She sniffed at it smelling the scent of one little creature that had once had their paws on him. She growled and licked the cast to cover up the scent with her own saliva.
Shortly after their reuniting the trio of tyrannosaurs walked back in to the jungle together, heading back to their nest. They walked until they came to a large trail. It was one of their own personal trails. It would lead them right near their nesting grounds. The male lead while the infant walked behind him and the female short ways behind the infant.
The trio walked until they reached the area of their nest. The male stopped one hundred yards away from the nest. He became tense and aggravated. He looked back at his infant and mate growling.
The female crouched down by the infant as the male turn away again and began moving towards the nest. As it moved it sniffed the air every few feet it got closer to the nest. It could smell a group of animals. Then at fifty yards it saw them all hanging around the nest. The tyrannosaur roared and charged forward with thundering footsteps. It jumped through overgrowth and slammed down into the clearing around their nest roaring again as dozens of little green animals chattered and fled in every direction. The tyrannosaur roared again at the fleeing animals and it stood poised over the nest.
After a moment the sound the little animals made died away into the jungle. But the tyrannosaur continued to stand poised growling. Small animals or large animals he did not want anyone to mess around with their nest. After another moment the tyrannosaur looked back to where itís mate and infant still were and called to them all was clear.
Together at the nest the adults lay down on either side watching the infant as it played with some rib bones. Kicking them around and picking one up in his mouth shaking it hard. The infant continued to play for a few more minutes before it began to yawn. The infant curled up into a fetal position and soon was sleeping. The adults continued to watch him.

Hunting
It was early morning; the sun was just beginning to show through the trees. The two adult tyrannosaurs yawned loudly. They had both lain awake through much of the night to keep watch over their infant. The male stretched his long body out yawning again. Then he picked himself up off the ground with his legs. He leaned up against a couple trees and began slightly moving up and down back and forth scratching his hindquarters. Then the female got up and stretched her own body high into the air put one leg then other out behind her stretching them.
A few minutes later the infant awoke. Groggy eyed her looked up at his parents. Yawning he then growled at them, and then whined. He was hungry very hungry. He had not eaten on over a day now.
The adult tyrannosaurs looked at each other for a moment. Then the female made a few low growls and the male groaned in returned. He was being told to go hunt for them. He left them both heading for the nearest game trail to them.
Though the tyrannosaurs preferred to hunt mainly at night. Most of the prey was not so active then or sleeping. Yet their infant was in need of some fresh food so he would have to attempt to catch something unless he got lucky and found something already dead he could just carry back to the nest with him. As he moved out of view of the nest the female roared and the male roared back in reply.
Back at the nest the infant stood now fully awake. Though hungry he was now in a playful mood. It ran in between the legs of its mother growling and biting at the air. Mother watched as the infant then tried chasing something flying around in the air. The infant snapped his jaws shut just short of it every time. As the infant played the mother began a much need cleaning of the nest.
She took hold of as many bones as she could with her mouth and carried them a ways away in to the jungle. Then she dropped them, letting the fall in the already huge pile of bones of meals long ago already collected there. Flies swarmed in the thousands here fighting over the rotten flesh that still clung to some bones. She gathered up bones twice more and then she began scrapping away a bunch of the old bedding in the center of the nest.
The infant played just outside of the nest as she worked. Using her feet she kicked and scratched much of the old bedding out of the nest. When she felt the nest was clean enough she began tearing away giant fronds away from near by plants and dropping them in the center of the nest.
The infant scrambled over the dirt mounds around the nest and began spinning in circles trying to snatch leaves as they fell from his motherís mouth to the ground. He finally caught a leaf and chewed on it and shook it around growling. Then he dropped it and pinned it to the ground with one foot and proceed to shred it to bits.
Elsewhere, the male tyrannosaur continued its search for food. He had traveled a few miles through some of the denser jungle. H would stop every once in a while sniffing the air hoping to catch scent of prey. Then he would continue along the trail.
Then he came upon the abandoned town that had once been the home to InGen workers. He walked though a large chunk of the broken wall. He sniffed the ground some. He new at times animal would hang around this place, but at the moment there were none and scent trails were old by at least a day.
He left and continued along the concrete wall of the long dead town. Soon the trail led away from the town.
After another couple miles of walking he came to a cliff located in the central part of the island. Here the wind brought the scent of prey to his nostrils.
He caught the scent of the three horn animals. Triceratops were grazing some place along this cliff face he was very sure of it. There was nothing good to conceal himself with along here though. Only a few trees, bushes, and tall grass lay along the cliff. Heavy cover was almost one hundred yards to the left. If he used that he would more than likely give his position away from noise. His only advantage on these animals was their bad eyesight and the present direction of the wind.
Quickly but quietly the cliff ledge staying as low as he could. Even for his size his footsteps made little vibration.
When he finally caught sight of the herd he grew more cautious slowing his pace down even more as he continued forward. These could be dangerous animals to deal with. If he could get close enough he could maybe startle the animals before they knew he was there and maybe cause them to panic enough to make them run and keep them from grouping into a circle of horns to protect any young and themselves.
He was now only maybe sixty yards away and the triceratops had no clue he was there yet. He continued one little step at a time. He had them for sure. He moved another five yards.
A sudden screech from high above caused the rex to freeze in his tracks and snap his head up to look. Then the triceratops began crying out in sudden alarm. Fly creatures had just given him away. He growled to himself as he turned back to the herd. They had grouped together in a circle has he feared they would do. The triceratops continued to cry out swinging the heads side to side a bit.
One of the triceratops stood alone from the rest of the herd. Obviously this was the herd leader. Just the size of the animal told the rex this along with the stance the animal had. A dead stare and it head bent forward making the two longer horns protrude out more.
The tyrannosaur watched as the triceratops stamped and scratched at the ground. The tyrannosaur knew this meant trouble for him in a big way. The tyrannosaur began slowly backing off.
The triceratops charged trumpeting in full anger. The tyrannosaur began backing away faster but the triceratops kept on coming for him. The tyrannosaur glanced at the now fleeing herd head for cover then fully focused on the charging triceratops.
The tyrannosaur was going to turn and make a run for it but the triceratops had gotten to close for him to dare turn his back on him.
The tyrannosaur stopped and as the triceratops closed in he raised one foot.
He slammed his foot back on the triceratopses face avoiding the horns barely. The triceratopses head slammed into the ground along with it body a spilt second later, but its momentum kept it sliding along the ground and the tyrannosaur then was knocked backwards off his feet as well.
Crashing backwards to the ground away from the triceratops the rex rolled away. Dust, dirt, and grass flew high into the air. The tyrannosaur got on his feet as soon as he could as for the triceratops was fixing to charge him again already.
The triceratops immediately charged again roaring mad. The tyrannosaur jumped clear to the left of the on coming attack. The triceratops skidded along the ground a moment, turned, and charged again. Again the tyrannosaur jumped out of its way only this time when the triceratops tried to stop and turn again the tyrannosaur leaped for him and landed on itís back.
Using the large talons on its feet the tyrannosaur gripped the triceratops in the back and using itís mouth bit down on the bony frill. The triceratops bucked and spun in circles trying to knock the tyrannosaur off, but the tyrannosaur simply dug it claws deeper in to the hide of the triceratops. The tyrannosaur let go of the frill and then bit down on the triceratopses neck right away. The triceratops roared in pain and anger as it bucked again. It tried to squeeze its frill back against to tyrannosaur to make it let go. They tyrannosaur held tight, itís teeth sinking through flesh with every struggling move the triceratops made.
The triceratops bucked again and this time the tyrannosaur lost itís footing and had to jump away before it fell. The tyrannosaur faced off with the triceratops again all it could see was the frill the sharp horns and the angry looking dark brown eyes of the animal when it stood there directly in front of him.
The scent of fresh blood filled the air. The tyrannosaur roared deafeningly loud at the triceratops. Then they started to circle keeping their distances from one another. They mocked attacked each other. They tyrannosaurs roaring them making a fake lunge and snapping its mouth shut. The triceratops just kept it horns train on the tyrannosaur snorting. They were both waiting for the other to make a move that would leave open to attack.
The triceratops moved charging. This surprised the tyrannosaur. The triceratops swung its horns for a leg, and the tyrannosaur tried to move out of striking distance at the last moment by jumping to one side.
The tyrannosaur landed back on the ground dust flying as the triceratops readied for attack again. It suddenly felt a sharp pain along the lower half of it right leg. The triceratops had managed to put a foot long cut on him but it was nothing to stop him. He let the blood flow freely uncaring.
Now the tyrannosaur charged the triceratops. Clamping down on one of the long horns with it massive jaws a short tug of war ensued.
The tyrannosaur held tight onto the one horn and with all its might forced the triceratops to the ground and then began to push it backwards some. But the triceratops got a foothold and the rex was no longer able to push the triceratops back.
Now the triceratops began forcing the tyrannosaur back. The tyrannosaur stepped back, but it didnít dare let get though, it just held onto the horn trying to keep from being run over. The triceratops tried shaking its head to make the tyrannosaur loose its grip.
As the tyrannosaur was forced back it attempted to look were it was being pushed to with one eye. It saw the ledge of the cliff immediately was directly behind it only a few yards away. A few more steps back and it would all over for him. With all the strength the tyrannosaur could muster he twisted his had still hold onto the horn forcing the triceratopses had to the ground again but it kept moving him back still.
There was sudden loud cracking sound followed by a snap. The tyrannosaur suddenly was stepping forward almost stumbling over the triceratops. The tyrannosaur was now holding a chunk of the horn in its jaws.
Free for the moment, the tyrannosaur used the triceratopses moment of confusing to bat a haste retreat. Dropping the piece of horn he ran full speed along the ledge passing by the heard still gathered among the trees. They roared as he went by.
The tyrannosaur looked back as he ran the triceratops was running after him but not in a serious manner, and then it stopped all together turning back for the herd snorting
The tyrannosaur continued to run slowing down as it got further away until the triceratopses were out of view. The tyrannosaur stopped resting briefly. His attempt to kill a triceratops failed miserably.

Rex vs. Raptors
The tyrannosaur continued panting a little bit still; the ledge was slowly sloping down to solid ground. He was in need of some water now. From where he was he could still see the islands main river that ran right through most of the island in the central region. That would be his next stop.
At ground level again the tyrannosaur made its way to the river. He moved through the woods until he came to a game trail. The scent of the pack hunter loomed here. These small but deadly creatures had once tried to wipe out their nest when his mate had just laid their only egg.
The tyrannosaur decided to follow the trail a short ways. It did head in the direction of the river. Then as it walked it began to smell something. Though the winds were calmer in the trees the sent of blood, fresh blood was very strong. This animal must have died not all that long ago. The only thing was the pack hunters were apparently also around whatever animals it was, as for their scent grew stronger as well. The tyrannosaur made the choice to go investigate the dead animal and see how many of the pack hunters were around it. Perhaps it could steel the animal?
It continued down the small trail, and it was not at all long before the tyrannosaur saw the dead animal. It was a young stegosaur, maybe two years old. Around the stegosaur were three of the pack hunters. The tyrannosaur scanned the field they were in for others. No others were present though. They alone must have brought it down?
The field the raptors were in was not all that big at the other end of it was a herd of stegosaurs. The dead one must have belonged with them. They were roaring and moving off away from the pack hunters at the same time. The pack didnít seem to notice the rest of the stegosaurs; they were now fighting amongst each other over the kill it seemed.
The tyrannosaur would need to act soon before the raptors would send one to collect the rest of the pack. Then he would have no chance at it. While they fought the tyrannosaur began charging into and through the field for them.
The raptors snapped at each other then two of them went into a tumble rolling through the grass growling and hissing while the other watched a moment. Then the sound of heavy footsteps and the ground vibrating caused the one raptor to look behind it. The others never noticing cause they were to busy fighting each other. The one raptor that saw the tyrannosaur went directly into a defensive posture hissing.
The other two now stopped fighting when they realized something was wrong. Then they to knew. They felt the vibrations and then heard a mighty roar.
Within only moments the tyrannosaur was on them. The one who spotted him first now charged forward letting out an attack scream. The tyrannosaur roared at the on approaching raptor.
The raptor leaped high into the air its sickle claws extended, and its claws out stretched. It screamed again. The tyrannosaur made no attempt to get out of the way. It just kept moving and when the raptor was almost on him he swung his head to one side and then back again striking the raptor and sending sailing through the air and crashing to the ground in a cloud of dust.
The other two raptors started an attack now. Running up along both side of the tyrannosaur they went for the legs. The tyrannosaur roared enraged when raptor latched onto its already hurt leg. He stopped running and did a half spin as he went for that raptor, its jaws crunching down on the raptors torso and then ripping it away and then slamming the body to the ground.
The tyrannosaur roared in pain as the other raptor slashed away on his other leg. He lifted his leg up and tried kicking to shake the raptor off him. The tyrannosaur kicked wildly, the raptor still clinging to its leg and trying to bite ever chance it got. Suddenly the raptors lost it grip it claws tore away from the flesh and the tyrannosaur roared in pain again. The raptor hit the ground landing on its back. The sun vanished from its eyes; all it saw next was as large foot rushing for him.
The tyrannosaur roared and stepped back revealing the squashed mangled body of its last attacker. Then the tyrannosaur focused on the stegosaur. It began moving for it but a scream off to its left stopped it. Quickly looking to the left the tyrannosaur saw the raptor that had first attacked him was jumping for him again. The tyrannosaur tried to duck the on coming attack but was not able to get low enough and the raptor landed on his back.
The raptor dug its sickle claws deep in the tyrannosaurs back. The tyrannosaur roared and spun in quick circles snapping at the raptor with it s jaws but the raptor remain just out of reach. The tyrannosaur roared in rage as the raptor slashed across his back with one clawed hand. Roaring again the tyrannosaur suddenly dropped to the ground and rolled catching the raptor by total surprise as it was crushed under the tyrannosaurs own weight.
Rolling back onto its belly the tyrannosaur looked back at the crushed raptor stuck to its back still. As it rose to its feet again the raptor slid off its back landing in a sort of heap on the ground. Now that the raptors had been done away with the tyrannosaur had the stegosaur to itself. However, now it was more interested in some water.
At the rivers edge the tyrannosaur waded out into the water and then submerging much of its body it letting the water wash over the wounds it had taken on. It winced a bit from the pain but it subsided. Then it let itself sink a bit more and it began rolling its bulky body around and purring while stirring up the mud. The water went from clear to black in seconds.
The rex pulled itself clear of the river after a couple minutes and once the water had cleared again it began heavily drinking. Once it had its fill it went to a spot along the river that was very muddy along one edge and rolled through the mud covering the wounds on its legs and back it had sustained a bit. Then it headed back to the stegosaur.
A group of those little green pests had already started to eat away at the stegosaur. A simple loud roar and the little beasts chattered in alarm and fled for cover. The rex stepped up to the stegosaur lying on its side. A brief sniffing and the rex clamped down on a hind leg of the animal while putting on of his feet on the animalís side he began pulling and tearing the leg clear of it joints and then the flesh began tearing until the hole leg was free of the body.
Setting the leg aside the tyrannosaur began to eat some of the stegosaur. Then after a few minutes it picked the hind leg up again and headed back for the nest. It had taken him much of the day to obtain this meal.
Back at the nest again the tyrannosaur dropped the leg into their nest for the infant to eat what it wanted. The infant wasted no time and began gnawing away at the meat. The female then left the nest now heading in the direction that her mate had pointed her in. Perhaps she could eat what was left of the carcass before other predators got to it again.
As night began to settle in, the infant fell asleep curing up in the center of the nest while its parents lay down encircling the nest.

Again the tyrannosaur jumped out of its way only this time when the triceratops tried to stop and turn again the tyrannosaur leaped for him and landed on itís back.
Using the large talons on its feet the tyrannosaur gripped the triceratops in the back and using itís mouth bit down on the bony frill. The triceratops bucked and spun in circles trying to knock the tyrannosaur off, but the tyrannosaur simply dug it claws deeper in to the hide of the triceratops. The tyrannosaur let go of the frill and then bit down on the triceratopses neck right away. The triceratops roared in pain and anger as it bucked again. It tried to squeeze its frill back against to tyrannosaur to make it let go. They tyrannosaur held tight, itís teeth sinking through flesh with every struggling move the triceratops made.
The triceratops bucked again and this time the tyrannosaur lost itís footing and had to jump away before it fell. The tyrannosaur faced off with the triceratops again all it could see was the frill the sharp horns and the angry looking dark brown eyes of the animal when it stood there directly in front of him.
The scent of fresh blood filled the air. The tyrannosaur roared deafeningly loud at the triceratops. Then they started to circle keeping their distances from one another. They mocked attacked each other. They tyrannosaurs roaring them making a fake lunge and snapping its mouth shut. The triceratops just kept it horns train on the tyrannosaur snorting. They were both waiting for the other to make a move that would leave open to attack.
The triceratops moved charging. This surprised the tyrannosaur. The triceratops swung its horns for a leg, and the tyrannosaur tried to move out of striking distance at the last moment by jumping to one side.
The tyrannosaur landed back on the ground dust flying as the triceratops readied for attack again. It suddenly felt a sharp pain along the lower half of it right leg. The triceratops had managed to put a foot long cut on him but it was nothing to stop him. He let the blood flow freely uncaring.
Now the tyrannosaur charged the triceratops. Clamping down on one of the long horns with it massive jaws a short tug of war ensued.
The tyrannosaur held tight onto the one horn and with all its might forced the triceratops to the ground and then began to push it backwards some. But the triceratops got a foothold and the rex was no longer able to push the triceratops back.
Now the triceratops began forcing the tyrannosaur back. The tyrannosaur stepped back, but it didnít dare let get though, it just held onto the horn trying to keep from being run over. The triceratops tried shaking its head to make the tyrannosaur loose its grip.
As the tyrannosaur was forced back it attempted to look were it was being pushed to with one eye. It saw the ledge of the cliff immediately was directly behind it only a few yards away. A few more steps back and it would all over for him. With all the strength the tyrannosaur could muster he twisted his had still hold onto the horn forcing the triceratopses had to the ground again but it kept moving him back still.
There was sudden loud cracking sound followed by a snap. The tyrannosaur suddenly was stepping forward almost stumbling over the triceratops. The tyrannosaur was now holding a chunk of the horn in its jaws.
Free for the moment, the tyrannosaur used the triceratopses moment of confusing to bat a haste retreat. Dropping the piece of horn he ran full speed along the ledge passing by the heard still gathered among the trees. They roared as he went by.
The tyrannosaur looked back as he ran the triceratops was running after him but not in a serious manner, and then it stopped all together turning back for the herd snorting
The tyrannosaur continued to run slowing down as it got further away until the triceratopses were out of view. The tyrannosaur stopped resting briefly. His attempt to kill a triceratops failed miserably.

Rex vs. Raptors
The tyrannosaur continued panting a little bit still; the ledge was slowly sloping down to solid ground. He was in need of some water now. From where he was he could still see the islands main river that ran right through most of the island in the central region. That would be his next stop.
At ground level again the tyrannosaur made its way to the river. He moved through the woods until he came to a game trail. The scent of the pack hunter loomed here. These small but deadly creatures had once tried to wipe out their nest when his mate had just laid their only egg.
The tyrannosaur decided to follow the trail a short ways. It did head in the direction of the river. Then as it walked it began to smell something. Though the winds were calmer in the trees the sent of blood, fresh blood was very strong. This animal must have died not all that long ago. The only thing was the pack hunters were apparently also around whatever animals it was, as for their scent grew stronger as well. The tyrannosaur made the choice to go investigate the dead animal and see how many of the pack hunters were around it. Perhaps it could steel the animal?
It continued down the small trail, and it was not at all long before the tyrannosaur saw the dead animal. It was a young stegosaur, maybe two years old. Around the stegosaur were three of the pack hunters. The tyrannosaur scanned the field they were in for others. No others were present though. They alone must have brought it down?
The field the raptors were in was not all that big at the other end of it was a herd of stegosaurs. The dead one must have belonged with them. They were roaring and moving off away from the pack hunters at the same time. The pack didnít seem to notice the rest of the stegosaurs; they were now fighting amongst each other over the kill it seemed.
The tyrannosaur would need to act soon before the raptors would send one to collect the rest of the pack. Then he would have no chance at it. While they fought the tyrannosaur began charging into and through the field for them.
The raptors snapped at each other then two of them went into a tumble rolling through the grass growling and hissing while the other watched a moment. Then the sound of heavy footsteps and the ground vibrating caused the one raptor to look behind it. The others never noticing cause they were to busy fighting each other. The one raptor that saw the tyrannosaur went directly into a defensive posture hissing.
The other two now stopped fighting when they realized something was wrong. Then they to knew. They felt the vibrations and then heard a mighty roar.
Within only moments the tyrannosaur was on them. The one who spotted him first now charged forward letting out an attack scream. The tyrannosaur roared at the on approaching raptor.
The raptor leaped high into the air its sickle claws extended, and its claws out stretched. It screamed again. The tyrannosaur made no attempt to get out of the way. It just kept moving and when the raptor was almost on him he swung his head to one side and then back again striking the raptor and sending sailing through the air and crashing to the ground in a cloud of dust.
The other two raptors started an attack now. Running up along both side of the tyrannosaur they went for the legs. The tyrannosaur roared enraged when raptor latched onto its already hurt leg. He stopped running and did a half spin as he went for that raptor, its jaws crunching down on the raptors torso and then ripping it away and then slamming the body to the ground.
The tyrannosaur roared in pain as the other raptor slashed away on his other leg. He lifted his leg up and tried kicking to shake the raptor off him. The tyrannosaur kicked wildly, the raptor still clinging to its leg and trying to bite ever chance it got. Suddenly the raptors lost it grip it claws tore away from the flesh and the tyrannosaur roared in pain again. The raptor hit the ground landing on its back. The sun vanished from its eyes; all it saw next was as large foot rushing for him.
The tyrannosaur roared and stepped back revealing the squashed mangled body of its last attacker. Then the tyrannosaur focused on the stegosaur. It began moving for it but a scream off to its left stopped it. Quickly looking to the left the tyrannosaur saw the raptor that had first attacked him was jumping for him again. The tyrannosaur tried to duck the on coming attack but was not able to get low enough and the raptor landed on his back.
The raptor dug its sickle claws deep in the tyrannosaurs back. The tyrannosaur roared and spun in quick circles snapping at the raptor with it s jaws but the raptor remain just out of reach. The tyrannosaur roared in rage as the raptor slashed across his back with one clawed hand. Roaring again the tyrannosaur suddenly dropped to the ground and rolled catching the raptor by total surprise as it was crushed under the tyrannosaurs own weight.
Rolling back onto its belly the tyrannosaur looked back at the crushed raptor stuck to its back still. As it rose to its feet again the raptor slid off its back landing in a sort of heap on the ground. Now that the raptors had been done away with the tyrannosaur had the stegosaur to itself. However, now it was more interested in some water.
At the rivers edge the tyrannosaur waded out into the water and then submerging much of its body it letting the water wash over the wounds it had taken on. It winced a bit from the pain but it subsided. Then it let itself sink a bit more and it began rolling its bulky body around and purring while stirring up the mud. The water went from clear to black in seconds.
The rex pulled itself clear of the river after a couple minutes and once the water had cleared again it began heavily drinking. Once it had its fill it went to a spot along the river that was very muddy along one edge and rolled through the mud covering the wounds on its legs and back it had sustained a bit. Then it headed back to the stegosaur.
A group of those little green pests had already started to eat away at the stegosaur. A simple loud roar and the little beasts chattered in alarm and fled for cover. The rex stepped up to the stegosaur lying on its side. A brief sniffing and the rex clamped down on a hind leg of the animal while putting on of his feet on the animalís side he began pulling and tearing the leg clear of it joints and then the flesh began tearing until the hole leg was free of the body.
Setting the leg aside the tyrannosaur began to eat some of the stegosaur. Then after a few minutes it picked the hind leg up again and headed back for the nest. It had taken him much of the day to obtain this meal.
Back at the nest again the tyrannosaur dropped the leg into their nest for the infant to eat what it wanted. The infant wasted no time and began gnawing away at the meat. The female then left the nest now heading in the direction that her mate had pointed her in. Perhaps she could eat what was left of the carcass before other predators got to it again.
As night began to settle in, the infant fell asleep curing up in the center of the nest while its parents lay down encircling the nest.
