Replica Of T-Rex Named Sue Returns To South Dakota

Replica Of T-Rex Named Sue Returns To South Dakota
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A T-rex named Sue is returning to South Dakota for a three-month visit.

The full-size traveling replica of the dinosaur unearthed from the Hell Creek Formation near Faith more than 20 years ago will appear at the Washington Pavilion's Kirby Science Discovery starting Saturday. The real Sue remains at Chicago's Field Museum, which purchased the 67-million-year-old fossil at auction for $8.4 million in 1997.

The 42-foot-long, 12-foot-high Sue was more than 90 percent complete when she was found, missing only a foot, one arm and a few ribs and vertebrae. She's named after fossil hunter Sue Hendrickson, who was working in the area with the Black Hills Institute of Geological Research's Peter Larson.

The model was created using casts of the original bones.

The exhibit runs through Jan. 5.
