Kong Chronicles - Vastatosaurus rex
2008 Ink, Photoshop
As the heavier, bulkier decendent of Tyrannosaurus Rex, the Vastatosaurus rex is at the top of the Skull Island food chain. The creature's size, animal cunning, and formidable jaws allows the adult of the species to go toe to toe with any other large predator on the island, including challenging the Kongs for dominance of the highlands.
After Carl Denham's fiasco at the Empire State building, scientists from many nations rushed to Skull Island to document the bizarre species which resided there. Many specimens were taken (sometimes at the cost of human life.) During the second world war an expedition of Nazi scientists capture several V. Rexes to be used in Project: Donnerdrache.
Unfortunately for the Germans, Vastatosaurus rex is not a species that takes to captivity well. By the time Kong is sent on his rescue mission the three V. Rexes in captivity were responsible for several dozen German casualties.
