Tyrannosaurus rex STAN

Stan was found in the South Dakota badlands, specifically the Hell Creek Formation near Buffalo.  He is named after the amateur paleontologist who found him in 1987, Stan Sacrison.  In the spring of 1992 the Black Hills Institute staff undertook the excavation.  It took them more than 30,000 hours to excavate and prepare Stan for display.  Stan T. rex is nearly 40 feet (12.2 m) long and 12 feet (3.7 m) high at the hips.  He is the largest, most complete, male Tyrannosaurus rex ever found.
