The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and the Smithsonian Institute's National Museum of Natural History celebrated the arrival of the Wankel Tyrannosaurus Rex on Apr. 15, making it the Smithsonian's first ever T. Rex. The T. Rex had been on display at the Museum of the Rockies in Bozeman, Mont., since its excavation in 1993. Last summer, USACE agreed to loan the Wankel T.rex, one of two owned by the Army, to the Smithsonian Institution's National Museum of Natural History for 50 years. The fossil will serve as a centerpiece of the Museum's new paleobiology hall, scheduled to open in 2019. Learn more: http://1.usa.gov/1nkf20F. Also available in high definition.
