On Jan. 16, the National Museum of Natural History unveiled “Tyrannosaurus rex: Say Hello to the Nation’s T. rex!” which features the cast of a T. rex skull (above). The cast is an accurate resin copy made from the skull of a real T. rex skeleton that will arrive in Washington on Apr. 15 for inclusion in the Natural History Museum’s new fossil hall after a five-year renovation to the museum’s current hall.
