Fitting Tyrannosaurus rex bone fragments together


This video says about itself:

The T-Rex hunts for food after laying her eggs, but has many different enemies that will attack her to prevent her from looking after her babies and raising them to be deadly predators.

Translated from ANP news agency and RTL Nieuws in the Netherlands today:

Nearly two hundred people have this weekend worked in Leiden on a special puzzle. They tried to fit the tiny skeletal remains of a Tyrannosaurus rex together.

In Naturalis museum there are thousands of shards of neck vertebrae and ribs of the T-rex. Eventually, 30 bits were found to fit together.

The bone remnants are part of the skeleton of a T-rex which lived 66 million years ago. Scientists of Naturalis excavated the dinosaur’s remains in 2013 in the United States.

Five million euros

Last year, the museum bought the complete skeleton. Using crowd funding and sponsorship, the museum received the required 5 million euros. The whole skeleton will come in September next year to Leiden. In 2018, it will get a place of honour in the new museum building.
