Inside three semi-trucks with 40 crates each weighing about two-thousand pounds, hold the bones of Sue.

Late this week at the Florida Museum of Natural History, Chase Permann, museum operations specialist, unpacked the largest, most complete T. rex skeleton cast in the world.

The 42-feet-long Tyrannosaurus rex will be on display in an interactive exhibit at the Florida Museum of Natural History. “A T. rex Named Sue” will be open to the public January 24 through mid-September.
