Dinosaurs. They’re beloved by many, children and adults alike, and chief among them is Tyrannosaurus Rex. It is the king of dinosaurs, after all.
Most of us are pretty familiar with what a T-Rex looks like, since they’ve appeared in plenty of popular media. But the person who designed this toy, shared by Twitter user @jonnysun, has apparently never seen one.
For anyone who isn’t familiar with Tyrannosaurus Rex, here is a rendering of what scientists think it looked like based on skeletal remains:
Cool! The toy dinosaur, however, looks like a strange amalgam of a T-Rex and an iguana, with the front legs of a chicken and the hind legs of a human.
I bet you’re saying, “Oh, it can’t really be that bad, right?” Behold:

Opinions seem to be mixed, but I think we can all agree that this is definitely not your typical T-Rex.
