    Would a t-rex/velociraptor eat a cow/goat if they were around today?

    .

    t-Rex ate much LARGER prey. He would especially like the warm blooded variety, though, so yes he would eat a cow, goat, horse, elephant, rhino, etc.

    You do realize that T-Rex was much larger then the raptors ?

    It's an interesting question that can only be answered hypothetically. It would seem logical that T-Rex would love large warm-blooded mammals, but since none were around at the time that T-Rex lived in the Triassic period it would have no natural experience with such prey. It's a bit like asking this: if dinosaurs were around today would people raise them on farms and eat them like we do cows and pigs? Who knows?

    My suggestion that T. rex would like warm blooded animals was hypothetical as well. I knew there were none around then.

    Triassic period is a study of mine.

    A hungry rex would eat whatever he could get his jaws on. Same for a raptor. Don't be late with my lunch either.
