Paleontologists to study T-Rex material

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Paleontologists at the KU Biodiversity Institute are excited at the chance to study the bones of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

A St. Louis museum determined it would no longer keep the collection, and gave it to KU for care and study.

David Burnham, fossil preparatory, says the fossil's age isn't clear but it's not believed to be full grown. To determine the age, Kansas paleontologists will search for more remains where the fossil was found in Jordan, Mont.
