Dinosaur - T. Rex Statue

This statue used to be kind of the centerpiece of the Boston Museum of Science. As science progressed, this particular portrayal of T. Rex was no longer viewed as scientifically accurate, so it was moved outside to make room for more up-to-date exhibits, and to give visitors something to look at while waiting in line. I think it's a nice alternative to having the statue destroyed.

Must 20 feet tall. Good thing he is a bean eater.
