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!
