Why did the T-Rex have such short, stubby arms? It's a good question to ask. It's also a question that has gone unanswered since the dawn of archaeology.

There are many, many hypotheses currently floating around in regards to the T-Rex's tiny arms.

For example, perhaps they were larger, and the T-Rex evolved to have shorter arms because they did not need to be long?

Or, maybe, they were just a random evolution because having short arms was neither a negative nor a positive?
