Program Description

SUE the Tyrannosaurus rex isn’t just any old dinosaur--this fearsome fossil is the  largest and most complete T. rex skeleton ever found. This rare specimen has helped  paleontologists answer questions about dinosaur intelligence, lifespan, and movement, making  this famous find a favorite of many scientists. But exactly what kinds of evidence can we observe  on SUE’s skeleton? What mysteries still remain?
