Trix the T. rex is one of the best preserved T. rex skeletons ever discovered. She lived to over 30 years old, meaning she is also the oldest T. rex skeleton ever found, is 39-foot long, around 13 feet high and weighs five tonnes.
The 66-million-year-old fossil of the carnivorous dinosaur was uncovered in Montana, USA, in 2013. Trix is the only original skeleton of a T. rex currently touring anywhere in the world.
Visit T. rex in Town at Kelvin Hall to find out more about Trix’s turbulent life from the information revealed by her bones. Learn more about what she ate, how she might have looked and what her environment was like.
Within the exhibition are fun interactive displays where you can try your hand at digging for fossils, have a go at designing your own T.rex and even dance like a dino!
For the Scottish leg of Trix’s tour you can also see fossilised dinosaur footprints from the Isle of Skye, visit the a dino-shop and try dino-themed street food from the Big Feed.
Glasgow is her last stop before she returns home to the Naturalis Biodiversity Center in Leiden, the Netherlands.
