  • History

    In 1902, fossil hunter Barnum Brown discovered fossils of a large predator in Montana’s Hell Creek formation. Little did he know, those fossils were destined to become world’s most famous dinosaur. Not until 1905 did American Museum of Natural History director Henry Osborn write a paper describing the skeleton as a new genus and species: Tyrannosaurus rex. Osborn described its size as “greatly exceeding any carnivorous land animal hitherto described.” The New York Museum sold the skeleton to the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in 1941 for $7,000, a measly sum compared to the $7.6 million that Sue the T-rex would fetch decades later.
