Tyrannosaurus Rex Addon (1.8+)

This add-on adds a Tyrannosaurus Rex dinosaur with custom animations to Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. It’s by far one of the most dangerous mobs that you will find in the Overworld. But if you’re lucky, you might find a young one, as they are harmless and can be tamed with some meat. You can then use it both for protection and as a rideable mount as you continue on your adventures in Minecraft.

Creator: PixelHeads, Twitter, YouTube Channel
Updated: 30 December, 2018 (updated for 1.8 – thanks to Julien!)

How does it work?

The Tyrannosaurus Rex (or T-Rex) is an added entity with amazing custom animations. The most epic one is by far the roar. Before an attack, it will push forward its neck, stretch open its jaw and then roar in anger. It’s quite horrific thing to experience, but it’s also what makes it fun.

The large T-Rexes should be avoided at all costs if you hold your life dear. However, if you find a small one then you can try taming it by feeding it any type of meat.

  • iOS / Android: Long press on the T-Rex with a piece of meat and press the interact button to attempt to tame it.
  • Windows 10: Right-click on the T-Rex with a piece of meat to attempt to tame it.

Crouch and use the interact button (or right-click if on Windows 10) to make it sit or stand.

A tamed adult can be used as a riding mount. Also here you will notice it has a custom animation while riding it.


  • Added entity
  • Naturally aggressive
  • Spawns naturally in the following biomes:
    • Taiga
    • Forest
    • Dark Oak Forest
    • Roofed Forest
    • Mega Taiga
  • Small T-Rex is tameable with some meat
  • Tamed T-Rex will follow you around and protect you
  • You can ride tamed adults

    Hay pixelhead it’s the new update, then update Tyranosaurus Rex addon so that its animation will work in minecraft

  16. AraxDragonSlayer says:

    There are lots of other dinosaur mods out there that add more dinosaurs then just the t rex . The main reason I downloaded this mod was because it sounded like it had awesome animations. Alas there seem to be no animations when the t rex is summoned and behaves just like a board. It roars and does pretty much everything else it says in the description but no animations. Pls fix.

  17. Dink says:

    I can see the egg and spawn the T-rex in but there is no T-rex when I spawn it in, it seems like the mob is invisible, and I have both packs on can anyone help?

  18. Steffen Hagen says:

  35. Hernan Valladares Ambriz says:

    This is a really good mod or Addon whatever you want to call it. You should start doing Jurassic Craft and adding loads of dinosaurs like corythosaurus, stegosaurs, sinoceratops, parasaurolophus, pachycephosaurus and stigymoloch!!! Without it having to replace a mob!!! You can also do the jeeps, the track, the fences, the incubators and little dna. You can also try the helicopter and also add pteradons and dimorphodons!!! I’ll stop now I’m just so happy you know how to make dinosaurs look good in game!!!

  36. Banana72 says:

  38. FredMaGeeTheThird says:

    Please make a add on with an animated xenomorph Or a predator or a new dragon that can fly have custom animations etc

  54. Ewan Roberts says:

    When I spawn the dinosaur, I don’t see anything. I can hear the TRex roar but can’t see he/her. What do I do?

  55. Confused says:

    I’m sure this is a great addon but the main problems are that I don’t have the spawn eggs of the mob, I found this to be a reoccurring problem in other addons in 1.8+ now I get that the update is relatively new so it isn’t perfect but it seems that other people don’t have this problem. Can someone give me an answer please?

  56. Aki says:

    Can some one help me? When I put the addon on my world nothing happens!
    (I have windows 10 edition)
    I put on experimental game play Other addons that I download on this site works

  57. Cedric says:

    Does this work on, If it does, how do I summon this??

  58. Troodon YT says:

    I’ve not got the spawn egg (if you are supposed to have them). I’ve read the installation, added the packes to world setting, using 1.8. And not finding them in the wild. Are they rare?

  59. Troodon YT says:

    I’ve put the behavior and resource pack on the
    World settings. But they aren’t spawning, I’m aslo using 1.8.
    Reply if you know why

  60. Peter Maffei-Crowhurst says:

    This addon is absolutely amazing. Works with Project Prehistoric. Also, with regards to you Dinosaur Explore map, the Baryonyx and Carnotaurus look a bit messed up. The baryonyx’s arms are below the lingers when the should be attached to the body and the fingers. And the Carnotaurus’s neck is half way inside to torso. Overall, I’d like that map to be updated. But I do have a few major requests.
    1: Carnivore dinosaurs addon with custom animations. Just like this one, but all carnivores as well as the indoraptor and indominus.
    2: Herbivore dinosaurs Addon with custom animations. Just like this one, but as the herbivores.
    3: Mosasaurus and Pterosaurs addon with custom animations. Just like this one, but as the Mosasaurus and Pterosaurs.
    If you could do the three requests and the fix, then you will make my mind explode with amazement.

  61. Wang Zhen Ji says:

    What did it replace? I opened the experiment and didn’t see the new eggs. I’m Win10. Can you give me the solution? Version 1.8.0. Thank you. I’m from China.

  62. 3D Craft says:

    Yeah i agree update it like Jujustyle7 demogorgon 2.0 Add-on pls i want this to work in1.8.0.24 and pls add some changes like the T-rex has new animations like when he roar at the 2nd second time the mouth opens again and add when u ride it shows a text (Ride T-Rex) pls i miss this Add-on 😀

  97. Alexander says:

    4 Stars
    Maybe Update it with another Texture Packs like a green rex , either way this is all any dinosaur fan can ask for. Finally throwing away Jurassic Craft (if your did) was a good thing to do.

    I hope maybe further or more recent there’s gonna be a Raptor addon or Hadrodaurs addon , please tell me if all the the dinosaurs from dinosaur Park , Island , and Survival will be newly animated to fit the realistic aesthetic.
