On September 5, 2018, a video of a Tyrannosaurus rex went viral on social media. The footage, which was captured in a farm in South Africa, showed the massive dinosaur chasing and then devouring a cow in front of horrified onlookers.

The video, which was posted by user @KurtViljoen on Twitter, quickly racked up millions of views and was shared by celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres and Dwayne Johnson. The footage sparked a debate online about whether the T-Rex was real or a hoax, with many people suggesting that the dinosaur was actually a mechanical prop or animatronic.

However, experts have since confirmed that the T-Rex is indeed real and that the footage is not a hoax. The dinosaur, which has been named ‘Rexy’, is a resident of the Jurassic Park-themed Safari Lodge in South Africa.

The lodge’s owner, Hans Blignaut, told reporters that Rexy is a ‘very friendly’ dinosaur and that she often greets visitors with a ‘roar’. Blignaut also said that the T-Rex is fed a diet of raw meat and dead animals, which is why she was seen devouring the cow in the video.

The video of Rexy has since been viewed over 100 million times on Twitter, making her the most famous T-Rex in the world.
