Replica of Saskatchewan T. Rex on display in Australian museum - Times Colonist

REGINA - Scotty the Saskatchewan T. Rex is about to have a new audience in Australia.

A full-sized replica of the dinosaur uncovered in the Frenchman River Valley near Eastend is being shown at the Australian Museum in Sydney.

The skeleton is an exact copy of the one made for the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

That replica was unveiled last March at the T. Rex Discovery Centre in Eastend.

The Australian exhibit showcases 10 life-sized dinosaur specimens that include a newly discovered feathery relative of T. Rex found in China.

The first pieces of Scotty were unearthed in 1991 and he remains one of the most complete specimens ever found in the world.

Scotty is about six metres tall and more than 12 metres long, with a huge skull approaching two metres in length.
