Are you quoting my review, that I don't think is currently online anywhere (although I probably said it here too) or is it just THAT natural that everyone independently pictures it?

Natural reaction, I would think.

They come so close and then don’t do it.

The Tyrannosaurus Rex

Yes, again

(82 Points, Adrenaline has the most love for the classics)

Traits:
The 7th time a T-Rex named T-Rex has shown up on this list
Still not the last time, either
Her name is Sue. HOW DO YOU DO?
More bones-per dino than any other T-Rex in the world


An executive decision was made shortly before we opened the park that we had just too darn many tyrannosaurs and not enough money to do a very good job of cloning them all. So when one of the higher ranking entries was just "A tyrannosaurus" we opted to cut a few corners and just cloned its skeleton back to life. And when our Genetic Fungineers told us that that was "a stupid plan", we just stole an existing dino-skeleton from Chicago.

What, Chicago has lots of skeletons. They won't miss one.


The Tyrannosaurus is one of the most popular dinosaurs in the world (as this list makes obvious), so I made the decision to instead focus specifically on Sue the Tyrannosaurus, permanent fixture of the Chicago Field Natural History Museum, as it is the largest, most complete t-rex skeleton ever discovered and is a giant dinosaur named "Sue" and I kind of love that.

Sue was named after its discovered, Susan Hendrickson, who separated from the rest of her paleontology group and just stumbled upon pieces of a giant-ass t-rex skeleton, which turned out to be in excellent health. You know, by skeleton standards, and it was eventually sold to the Chicago museum for $8,362,500. And that's in 1997 dollars!

Nobody knows Sues cause of death (cold case is still open, gumshoes!), but she was apparently quite the badass, as the small amount of damage to her skeleton was all caused by fighting with other dinosaurs. Like a boss
