"The giant tyrannosaurus rex that was discovered in western Canada in 1991, is the largest found so far, says a researcher who worked for a long time to reconstruct the dinosaurieskelettet."
"Scotty, as the skeleton came to be called after the bottle of scotch whisky that was drunk to celebrate the discovery, was 13 metres long and weighed an estimated nine tons, making it larger than all other carnivorous dinosaurs."
"– this is rexarnas rex, " says Scott Person, researcher and lead author of the study on the jätteskelettet."
"– There is a clear difference in size between the different tyrannosaurusar. Some individuals were gängligare while the other was more robust. Scotty is an example of the robust."
"Despite the fact that the record was made already in 1991, it has taken researchers a long time to analyze the skeleton is just to scrape away all of the sandstone from the legs took over a decade."
"It is only now that you really have got a grip on Scotty's unique properties, which do not stop at the size."
"– Scotty is the oldest T-rex we know, " says the Person on the bjässen who lived for over 30 years."
"Dinosaurieentusiasten do well to mark may 18 in your calendar – then opens an exhibition with Scotty's leg at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum in Canada."
