Stan the T. rex

Stan the T.rex

A cast of the renowned Tyrannosaurus rex fossil known as Stan is now on display. The original Stan was found in the Hell Creek Formation in South Dakota in 1987 and excavated in 1992. It is one of the most complete T. rex fossils discovered. The completed specimen is twelve feet tall and almost forty feet long. This new exhibit was made possible by a generous loan from the Perot Museum in Dallas, Texas.
“The Perot Museum of Nature and Science is pleased to loan this skeletal cast of the iconic T. rex to the Mayborn Museum Complex at Baylor University,” said Dr. Linda Silver, Eugene McDermott Chief Executive Officer of the Perot Museum of Nature and Science. “As organizations dedicated to the advancement of scientific knowledge, this agreement between Baylor and the Perot Museum embodies the institutional partnerships that strengthen our scholastic community. We look forward to seeing ‘Stan’ installed at the Mayborn as we continue to inspire minds through nature and science beyond the walls of the Perot Museum.”
