Welcome to our newest feature, Just for Fun!

The office of Fossil News is located near the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, which has a wonderful mount of a Tyrannosaurus rex in the main entry hall. The skeleton is a cast of the one in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, dramatically posed by iconoclastic paleontologist Dr. Robert Bakker.

We realize that many of you do not have the opportunity to visit a museum with such a skeleton, so how about taking a virtual look at the T. rex? It is a Quicktime Virtual Reality file, so you need the Quicktime plug-in for your browser. Most systems these days come with this pre-installed, but if you find you can't view the movie, go to Apple Computer's website and download Quicktime, and then come back. (Note: there are versions of Quicktime for both Macintosh and Windows.)

View the T. rex!
