Eckels as an hunter, is motivated to go back in time, not only be able to see one in his own eyes, but kill a T-rex.

This theme represents science fiction because if time travel were real, scientific date can prove that things could be changed very

The essay describes the typical American view of the T. rex as the “great-meat-eater” and “King of the Tyrant Lizards;” powerful, scary, a predator. But the theory about the true nature of the T. rex, developed by the “self credentialed iconoclast” Jack Horner, is quite at
