The Ultimate Predator: T.rex

Recommended Posts

Masp

Quick tour of my trip to The Ultimate Predator: T.rex exhibit at the American Museum of Natural Hisptory, NYC back in September.

 

Some pics are not of the best quality and I apologize - the room was very dark. Speaking of which, in that dark room when you come face to face with Tyrannosaurus rex at the end of the exhibit, you are left imagining how frightening it would be to encounter such an animal in the evening ;). Most representations of Tyrannosaurus rex I come across don’t phase me because they either appear too outdated, or unrealistic. This is one is different because it’s not Hollywood. Whether the representation is accurate or not, it’s realistic and quite the brute. Would love to know everyone’s thoughts on this giant rex display. 

 

Positives: 

 

If you love Tyrannosaurus rex / tyrannosaurs then this is for you: all updated information and facts regarding the animal and its lineage. 
 

Dinosaur models are all very cool, realistic, and finally with feathers. 

 

Some very rare, incredible specimens on display, but few. 

Organized and easy to follow as you walk through the timeline. 

 

Negatives: 

 

Much more replicas than actual specimens.

Gutted I didn't get to do this when I was here. I missed the last slot as we had to head back for something else. Looks great and seems like you had a great time. Thanks for sharing :)

This Tyrannosaurus rex is one of two that the museum has hidden away, now on display. The other is the T rex many of you know and have seen.
