The undisputed king of dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus rex is even bigger than we ever believed.
This is according to a new study conducted on "Scotty", 66-year-old T The skeleton of Rex was first discovered in Canada in 1
"This is rex of rex," Scott said. New Scientist Authors in Press Release
The skeleton is found in the western Canadian province of Saskatchewan, surrounded by sandstone. It took 10 years of excavation work to eradicate the fossils, and now scientists have finally succeeded in uniting Scott's picture as they would have done 66 million years ago.
The findings are published in The Anatomical Record on March 21. The research team describes Scotty as "extremely large" and "strong", which in fact means that he is an absolute unit.
Making Scotty even more unique is the fact that he is the oldest T. Rex's skeleton was discovered and probably was in his early 1930s when he died – which is a fairly good mileage for the theropods, because as far as we know they lived between 20 and 30 years. Investigating one of the major bone bones, the research team may find that Scotty is mature T. Rex.
And at his time he had seen things – he had the scars of a small number of brawls.

Scotty takes over the crown of the largest ancient ancient lizard of Sue, wonderfully preserved T. The Rex Skeleton in South Dakota in 1990. The estimated weight of Sue is about 400 kilograms less than expected for Scotty, but about 90% of this skeleton is recovered but it is still the most extensive T. Rex copy that has ever been discovered
