Dinosaur Digs and Climbers

Real Life Casts of Dinosaurs to Inspire and Thrill Children

T-Rex Dinosaur Dig


T-Rex (meaning “Tyrant lizard king”) was one of the world’s largest meat eating dinosaurs at 40 feet long, 15 feet high and weighing 5 to 7 tons. T-Rex roamed the earth 68 to 65 million years ago and was known for its large, powerful jaws and fearsome look. Interestingly, for such a large animal, the hands and arms, though powerful, were quite small.
This T-Rex dig was cast off the second most complete T-Rex specimen in the world. This is the T-Rex on display at the Chicago museum. Bury this skeleton under sand and watch children be amazed as they uncover this huge life size T-Rex.
Dimensions – 36′ long (11.0m) x 14′ (4.3m).
