It's pretty impressive if you see it in person. IIRC, it's the oldest, largest, and most complete T-rex ever found. farm4.staticflickr.comMy son loved seeing it when we had a membership to the Field Museum

Allegedly it can also haul ass, but it doesn't corner well.

Why would you fight over who is forced to take the pug? Just abandon it in the apartment when you move out.

So did I.  Sue is badass.  I'm glad that the museum raised the money to keep her.  I still have a coffee cup that I bought as part of the fundraiser.

I saw her last year when she was on the road. Her display has a section on the legal battle.

I said this at the time. It's still true now:

If Sue had been anything other than a T rex, nobody would have given a damn.

My wife volunteered at the Field Museum in the Sue exhibit (plus others) and we were almost all there including my 2 year old daughter (my son was not conceived yet), and we watched the bones being taken out of the matrix before she was put on display.  We also met Sue Hendrickson and heard her tale, and funded the casting of 3 vertebrae for the brachiosaur that now sits outside the museum.  Basically we were Field Museum nerds before we moved.

Is it the Cabazon T-Rex?  No.

Is it the animatronic T-Rex from Jurassic Park?  No.

And like that they've lost me.

fireclown: So did I.  Sue is badass.  I'm glad that the museum raised the money to keep her.  I still have a coffee cup that I bought as part of the fundraiser.


The field museum did not raise the money to keep her, they raised the money to buy her from the guy who took it back from the people he originally sold it to.  I was at the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research on the day of the auction.  My professor in college was friends with the guys who run it.  The town had raised money to try and buy her, but there was no way they could compete with the money that the field museum got from McDonald's and Disney.

The check written to the landowner clearly said "for thecodont Sue" on the memo line, but the landowner claims it was payment for disturbing the land, you know the badlands of South Dakota which crumble if you look at them (they have long thought to erode at a rate of about one inch per year, but it might be less in some places).

The government claimed that they seized Sue to keep the guys who found her from selling this amazing natural resource, then gave it to the guy who happened to live on the land where these people had done all of the work digging her up and preserving her, and he sold it to the highest bidder.  Fortunately a legitimate museum bought her, but the owner didn't care as long as he got the money.

CSB:

I went to college at the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, and I worked in the physical plant. One day a huge locked shipping container showed up in the building that housed the boilers, and we were ordered not to go near it. It was there for a long time, and then one day it was gone. We found out shortly after it disappeared that it was Sue. I guess we were where they decided to store it, at least for a while, while the custody dispute went on. It was all very hush-hush, and we had more than one conversation about breaking into it to see what was inside. We knew that it was something valuable, but we had no idea what it was until after it was gone.
