Bring a T. Rex to Life. Press out the photographic “bones” from this Make Your Own T. Rex book and slot together a 2-foot long model based on a real Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton, while simultaneously exploring T. Rex anatomy and the behavior and environment of popular prehistoric reptiles. Dr. Michael Brett-Surman of our National History Museum’s Paleobiology Department was the book’s consultant. Ages 7 and up. Hardcover; 32 pages. 80-piece model and step-by-step instructions included. 11" x 8.85".
The cast skeletons of the Triceratops and the Tyrannosaurus rex face off in the Dinosaur Hall of our National Museum of Natural History. Though the lance-like horns and bony skull frill of the Triceratops would have made it difficult, the fearsome T. rex was happy to have him for lunch.
