The American Ninja Warrior challenge has proven to be too much for many humans, including professional athletes, but how would it stand up against the Terrible Lizard King?

On Monday’s edition, the obstacle course competition was in Atlanta, where a tyrannosaurus rex took on the first stage of road to Mt. Midoriyama and fared quite well, especially considering the prehistoric bast does not posses the opposable thumbs that are so crucial to the task.

The apex predator makes it pretty far into the course before his tiny arms and gigantic head cause him to fall into the water and end his chances at becoming the first reptilian champion in the show’s history.

In other news, there is a T. rex on the loose in Atlanta.
