Could a Tyrannosaurus rex kill King Kong?

The Tyrannosaurus rex (a.k.a. rex or T. rex, and occasionally called the Big TR) is a dinosaur who is believed to have roamed the earth over 65 million years ago. The T. rex was a 20-foot tall carnivore who feasted on other dinosaurs. According to, the male Kong stands at a height of 25 feet tall, which is almost 5 times the size of the largest gorillas.

King Kong, an ape introduced to the world by Hollywood screen writers in 1933, is a fictional character that never actually existed. The popular 1933 movie was re-introduced to the world in the 2005 movie titled King Kong. This latest release of King Kong does put Kong up against three T. rexes, but you'll have to rent the movie to find out the victor.

If in some fictional, fantasy land, the fearsome Tyrannosaurus rex and giant King Kong met up in a heavyweight title match, a winner would be very difficult to predict. However, my money is on Tyrannosaurus rex. With his 8-inch long razor-sharp teeth and take-no-prisoners attitude, I think he would defeat King Kong in a fight to the death.

If you're interested in finding out who would win a battle between King Kong and Godzilla, check out the 1962 aptly named classic, King Kong vs. Godzilla. But here's an interesting piece of trivia: Depending on whether you found the American or Japanese version of the film, you'd see two different endings. The American movie ends with King Kong swimming away toward his island victoriously. But the Japanese film sees Godzilla emerge the winner. Maybe this is proof that it would be a close fight, don't you think?
