Peek into this work area and watch us care for our new Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton as we process and 3D scan each bone. See the work happen 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Friday.
This T. rex is one of the most complete ever discovered; it was found in 1988 by Kathy Wankel, a rancher from Angela, Montana. On long-term loan from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.
