Meet Jane, the kid sister Juvenile Tyrannosaurus rex at Rockford museum is a prize catch like Sue -- but smaller by Richard Wronski (Chicago Tribune):
” ROCKFORD, Il. -- Officials with Rockford's Burpee Museum of National History knew they'd hit the geological jackpot four years ago when a group of museum-sponsored amateurs stumbled on the toe of a 66-million-year-old dinosaur while digging in the Montana badlands.

There is more about this fabulous find and details if you click on the link above. And Fooey on the idiot "Creationist" folks who claim dinosaurs either did not exist, or are purposefully misleading clues left by...? in their Grand Scheme of the World. Here is yet another wonderful piece in the lifecycle of a T-Rex to add to the growing picture and knowledge of dinosaurs.
