‘Magnificent T. Rex’ Found on Montana Ranch, Museum Reports (With Pictures)

T. rex tail fossil

A nicely in tact, or articulated, set of tail bones is among the draws of a newly discovered fossil of Tyrannosaurus rex, which is being unearthed from a Montana ranch.

Portions of the tail were reportedly some of the first signs that a T. rex might be on the site.

Officials from the Naturalis Biodiversity Center, a Dutch museum that spearheaded the hunt for the fossil, said that researchers focused on the Montana site after a pair of amateur paleontologists reporting finding tail bones and teeth there.
