Exhibition: T. Rex Attack

Visitors to the Museum will thrill to find themselves face to face with the gaping maw of the second largest T. rex ever found, in full attack mode, as they round the corner of the Museum Atrium.

Stan is a Tyrannosaurus rex, one of the largest predatory dinosaurs of all time. He was a powerful, agile, bipedal killing machine. Forty feet long and 12 feet high at the hips, Stan weighed roughly 6 tons and hunted with an acute sense of smell, 3-D vision, and great speed powered by huge and muscular hind legs. Read more about Stan.

A complete T. rex skeleton has yet to be found in New Mexico, however fossils of tyrannosaurid dinosaurs-Albertosaurus and Tyrannosaurus rex-have been discovered all over New Mexico from the San Juan Basin to Elephant Butte and Raton. See what Tyrannosaurs are known from New Mexico.

T. REX ATTACK! is on permanent display in the Museum's atrium and is free with regular Museum admission.
