T. Rex: The Ultimate Predator opens at the American Museum of Natural History. It is the first major exhibition of the American Museum of Natural History’s 150th anniversary celebration, from fluffy hatchling to massive killing machine: new exhibition explores the life history, remarkable abilities, and ancient relatives of tyrannosaurus rex.
T. rex: The Ultimate Predator is curated by Mark Norell, who joined the Museum in 1989. Norell, who is the Macaulay Curator in the Museum’s Division of Paleontology and its chair, has led and participated in a number of scientific investigations into the biology and evolutionary history of tyrannosaurs and other theropods—the group of dinosaurs most closely related to modern birds. In addition to Dilong, many of the species studied by Norell and his colleagues and former students, and recent research findings, are featured in the new exhibition.
After working with the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH) in 2016 for its special exhibition Dinosaurs Among Us, Mr. ZHAO Chuang, PNSO’s scientific artist accepted AMNH’s invitation and collaborated as its partner artist once again. Based on the latest scientific research, he created 25 science artworks on dinosaurs. The species he depicted include adult and young Tyrannosaurus rex, as well as Dilong, Guanlong, Zhuchengtyrannus, Yutyrannus, and Xiongguanlong etc.
