Tyrannosaurus Rex -- a hopper?

A question that just occurred to me:

Three animals that tend to have huge hind legs and smaller front legs are: frogs, kangaroos, and Tyrannosaurus Rex. Frogs and kangaroos often get around by leaping on the two hind legs. Did the T-Rex do that too? Must have been quite a sight.

Apparently T. rex was not a hopper--maybe a runner, maybe a walker--but the image of a hopping T. rex is a wonderful image nonetheless.

I already had an image of T.Rex as a larger kangaroo. We don't know anymore what he ate. The specialists agree he is completely a mystery, as to blood temperature, tissue, behavior, etc.

We don't know how his hearing organs looked on the outside, nor if the mothers had pouches.
