Learn more about all there is to see and do at T.rex in Town and get to know Trix, the 66 million year old fossil at the centre of the exhibition.
Step back in time to the Cretaceous period and meet Trix. Standing at 12 metres long, the giant Tyrannosaurus rex will greet visitors in attack mode!
Trix is the third most complete T.rex skeleton ever discovered, with over half of her bones uncovered and each one remarkably well-preserved. She lived to over 30 years old, meaning she is also the oldest T.rex skeleton ever found.
The 66-million-year-old fossil of the carnivorous dinosaur was found in Montana, USA in 2013 and is the centerpiece of this touring exhibition from the Netherlands. Trix is the only original skeleton of a T. Rex currently touring anywhere in the world.
Visit the exhibition at Kelvin Hall to find out more about Trix’s turbulent life from the information uncovered in her bones. Learn more about what she ate, how she might have looked and what her environment would have been like. Within the exhibition are interactive displays where you can try your hand at digging for fossils, have a go at designing your own T.rex and even dance like a dino!
For the Scottish leg of Trix’s tour there will also be fossilised dinosaur footprints, found in our very own Isle of Skye on display.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to come face to face with a T. Rex! Glasgow is the last stop on Trix’s Europen tour before she returns home to the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, Leiden, Netherlands
