Paleontologists disagree when it comes to baby T. rex. For one, the fossil record is incomplete and juvenile baby T. rexes are extremely rare but there is a chance they are not as rare as some think. Nanotyrannus might not be a small relative of T. rex but instead might be a misidentified baby T. rex. To solve the mystery, paleontologists look to living evolutionary relatives. Baby lizards closely resemble their adult parents, however, dinosaur’s evolutionary descendants, the birds, look very different as juveniles or adults – just consider a baby chick and a rooster or the ugly duckling and the beautiful adult swan.
