Skylanders Tree Rex The First Of The Skylanders Giants

When Skylanders Giants was first announced by Activision, Skylanders Tree Rex was the first actual Giant character we got to see. He is the Life Giant, and is one of eight Skylanders Giants.

They are cold blooded certainly, but ask anyone that has been around snakes for a good length of time and they will probably tell you otherwise. I have had snakes for over ten years.
