Washington’s Newest Resident – A Tyrannosaurus Rex

April 15, 2014

Meet “Big Mike” — a bronze replica of a Tyrannosaurus rex. Big Mike lives in front of the Museum of the Rockies, at Montana State University in Boze­man, and is named after the school’s former president, Michael P. Malone. And because the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History doesn’t have a real Tyrannosaurus rex, the Army Corps is lending the Wankel T. rex to the museum on the Mall for the next 50 years. It will replace a life-size replica of “Stan,” a T. rex that was found in South Dakota in the 1980s. (Post)
