T. Rex fossil with skull

Paleontologists have discovered a Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil, including a very complete skull, during an expedition to the Hell Creek Formation — an area that is world-famous for its fossil dinosaur sites. The fossil, which the paleontologists estimate to be about 20 per cent of the now-extinct animal, includes vertebrae, ribs, hips and lower jaw bones. The T. Rex found by a team of paleontologists with the Burke Museum of Natural History and Culture and the University of Washington is nicknamed the “Tufts-Love Rex” in honour of the two volunteers who discovered it.
