T-Rex

This week I had the privilege of viewing a real(a cast of the real thing of course, I imagine the actual bones are too valuable to cart around the countryside) t-rex skeleton. The largest and most complete one ever found actually. After all the pictures, videos etc of dinosaurs in general... I wasn't expecting the level of awe I felt. Just standing there staring up at such an amazing creature I felt a surge of joy and gratitude for the variation and magnificence of God's creation.

I thought 'ole Sharptooth turned out to be a combination of several other dinos.

This one is advertised as the most complete t-rex skelly ever found missing only a couple bones. Who knows tho! :) It's like "Lucy" or whichever of the "missing links" was constructed from a single tooth... which turned out to be from a pig...
