T. Rex named Sue!

Sue’s at the Montshire!  Correction… a life-sized replica is at the Montshire Museum of Science in Norwich, VT. She’s the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus rex ever discovered!

My geeky alter-ego would have been a paleontologist so a trip to see Sue was a given! She… or maybe she’s a he, they don’t know… is HUMONGOUS!  Over 40 feet from her snout to the tip of her tail and she stands at least 13 feet tall at her hip. Simply massive!

But one visit just wasn’t enough. I returned today for another view!

My… what large teeth you have my dear!

Check out those proportions… Her foot is as large as that young fella!

The T. Rex exhibit will be there ’till September 7th. Find out why she’s named Sue and try all the interactive activities… don’t miss it! Not interested? There’s plenty to keep your attention and be sure to say hi to this little mink for me!
