Meet the World's Largest Touring Tyrannosaurus Rex, Victoria.
Phoenix Dinosaur Exhibit Now Open
Victoria, the largest Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton touring the world, made her global debut at Arizona Science Center on November 16, 2019. Now open to the public, this world premiere exhibition transports guests to a time when dinosaurs roamed the earth, bringing to life one of the most important discoveries in the history of paleontology and giving museum visitors the rare opportunity to visit the Cretaceous period where Victoria’s story will unfold in her natural habitat.
Victoria the T. rex was officially announced to the scientific community today as the second most complete T. rex skeleton on record. Initially unearthed outside Faith, South Dakota, in 2013, Victoria has undergone years of meticulous research and restoration in order to earn this claim. Victoria’s completeness and unique pathologies have provided paleontologists with a wealth of insights into the species that will be studied for years to come.
“The discovery of Victoria has provided the paleontological community with a tremendous amount of new information. The various insights gleaned from her unique and groundbreaking pathologies will be the subject of research for years to come. From a bite on her jaw that led to an unusually widespread infection to an absorbed tooth in the maxilla, it is clear she overcame many rivalries and injuries in the struggle to survive as an apex predator.” – Heinrich Mallison, Lead Scientist
