Theropod Thursday 1: CMNH T. rexes

Over at Archosaur Musings my esteemed colleague Dave Hone has just published a series of posts on the Carnegie Museum of Natural History‘s (CMNH) Tyrannosaurs rex mounts. That’s stealing my thunder; I had a wonderful visit to the CMNH in April on which I intended to blog soon, and obviously wanted to include some nice pics of the Rexes. Aside from some nice totals, Dave’s pictures focus on the skulls, and so I can at least add a few odd views.

As I said before, unusual views are important, but often ignored. So here#s a butt view of “Jane” to go with Dave’s last CMNH Tyrannosaurus post.

I had very little time to check out the exhibition (more on why later), and in fact the guards were already kicking people out when I took this photo. Sorry for the blurriness. I was really in haste.

Here is a fairly standard view, but one Dave didn’t show: a fully lateral view of the hind limb of one of the mounted Rexes.

and that’s enough for Theropod Thursday!

    Hey man, sorry to have jumped you on this! Still, thanks for the back-links to my posts, very kind.

    • No worries! I was there in April, didn’t manage to post until now – who’s to blame you? 😉
      And you took better pictures. Running through the CMNH’s exhibition in 25 minutes is, well, really running, for the most part.

      btw, I see you upload bigger pictures theses days. Cool! 😀

      • David Hone says:

        Well the bigger photos are simply because I have generally faster loading times and since an upgrade on machine, actually lacked a program to shrink the images. So they’ve all been large for about 2 1/2 ears now I think

    Ok, no offence intended, but I’m amused in a childish way by the coincidence of a picture posted here of a T rex’s heinie.
