If you dropped an adult T-Rex in the Serengeti, would the native animals recognize it as a predator or just a weird looking prey item?

    I think large Serengeti animals do that herd thing and a T. rex stomping about would most definitely set them off.

    Adult T-Rex would be fucked up there. Theres a lack lack of oxygen compared to when it was alive. It would probably have very laboured breathing, and not getting enough oxygen would make it quite weak.

    assuming poachers didn't kill it, it would probably just scavenge corpses. anything predator that saw this shit coming would fucking bolt, so I doubt it would have any trouble finding food.

    it could probably also survive off of retarded bull elephants that went for suicide charges

      It would probably end up grievously wounded if that happened. A T-rex could definitely kill an elephant, but if the elephant rammed it first the kind of wounds it could inflict would be extremely debilitating if not outright fatal. If its more than one forget it, it’s fucking over.

        it's not like t-rex had experience with large horned animals or anything

          Yeah, elephants are behaviorally completely different from those, so the comparison is complete BS. Also they are very social animals, which these probably weren’t. Nothing can mess with a herd of elephants and live to tell the tale.

            How do you know any of this. We literally know next to nothing about the behavior of these animals. If they were the size of elephants and had horns, they may very well do what elephants do

            I thought ceratopsians we're though to be decently sociable.

      Dodos didn't recognize humans as predators because they had been isolated from predators for thousands of years
      Black bears and jaguars still show feeding and habitat preference that don't overlap with bigger predators, even though those predators are long dead
      I am curious about T-rex because big mammals like rhinos and elephants don't fear trucks or cars, for different reasons.

    Whatever the case, It probably wouldn't do that well. Don't know if it's true, but they're saying now that T-Rex's walking and maybe running speed were slower than we originally thought. If that's true it wouldn't be able to catch much, especially since big shit like elephants, hippos, rhinos, and cape buffalos are well known for being faster than they look. But i'm sure it could pull a jack horner and scavenge.

      I genuinely don't buy the idea of it being very slow because I feel it doesn't add up with its sheer spread as a species but couldnt the T Rex just pick off weaker and older animals? Or just slower and more lethargic ones like crocodiles?

        the hypothesis is that the t-rex's wide success came from it being able to dominant all scales of the predatory niche, out-performing local predators when juvenile, adolescent, and fully grown. in such a situation, a full-grown t-rex could be incapable of sustaining itself long-term, but the species would still be successful due to the younger generations.

        I get it. The only reason I added speed as a factor in my post though, was because OP said adult T-rex, not juvenile. if that Idea is correct, it would only be correct when they reached adulthood, and not when they were lanky teens or subadults with long legs for sprinting.
