THE skeleton of Trix the Tyrannosaurus rex goes on show at Kelvin Hall in Glasgow from today.

A team of experts has spent three days putting some 300 individual bones together to make up the massive skeleton.

With ferocious teeth and short arms, the Tyrannosaurus rex is probably the most well-known dinosaur in the world.

The 66 to 67-million-year-old T rex female is 39-foot long, around 13 feet high and weighs a colossal 5000 kg.

The dinosaur has spent the last year touring European countries as part of an interactive and educational exhibition, T rex in Town, which explains the story of her life and discovery of her skeleton.

She is currently the only real T rex on tour in the world while her museum in the Netherlands is being redeveloped. More than a million people have already visited the exciting interactive exhibition across Europe.

T rex in Town overlaps with the final weeks of Dippy on Tour from the Natural History Museum at Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, just across the road from Kelvin Hall.

Trix will be in Glasgow for

15 weeks until July 31. Glasgow is the only city in the UK or Ireland to be visited by Trix

Steph Scholten, director of The Hunterian (pictured left), said: “Bringing this major touring exhibition to the city will allow thousands of Scots, and visitors to Scotland, to see one of the world’s most iconic dinosaur species.

“Tyrannosaurus rex skeletons are very rare finds and Trix is the only real touring T. rex fossil in the world. This is a major coup for Glasgow.”
