Durham Museum: A T-Rex Named Sue

The Durham Museum in Omaha has a special exhibit going on until September 8th, 2013.  As of right now, you still have time to see a real T-rex skeleton!

Sue, as it is named, was originally thought to be a female and was named after her discoverer, but now they aren't sure of Sue's sex.  It is the most complete and largest Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton found to date.

A cast of her skull is available for a closer encounter.

We got there in time for a talk about the exhibit, and the staff member had an iPad with a dino-petting app.  Other displays showed how dinos moved and saw.

She can't wait to eat meet you!

Their dino digging pit was pretty lame as far as those things go, the chips are recycled rubber, but it's only a temporary thing, so they can't get too elaborate.

Nicholas enjoyed the 3D dino puzzles.
