By far the best-known T-rex skeleton is that of Sue, a fine specimen on display at the Field Museum in Chicago. At 90% complete, Sue is the most complete T-rex skeleton yet discovered. We don’t know whether Sue was male or female; the skeleton is named after Sue Hendrickson, the fossil enthusiast who found it. However, an ugly custody battle ensued, and the skeleton ended up on an auction block, where private investors and museums alike bid to own the famous skeleton. With a bid of 7.6 million dollars, the Field Museum brought home the prize.
