Title Shen the T. rex to go under the hammer in Asia: 'Scientifically-important' 40-foot dinosaur skeleton could fetch up to $25 MILLION at auction Media name/outlet Mail Online Media type Web Country/Territory United Kingdom Date 29/09/22 Description Shen the T. rex has been researched by palaeontologists Dr David A. Burnham at the University of Kansas and Dr John R. Nudds at the University of Manchester.
'T. rex are incredibly rare,' said Dr Nudds. 'Just one in 80 million T. rex dinosaurs were preserved as a fossil. Only two have ever sold at auction. T. rex is the greatest of all dinosaurs and Shen is one of the best.
'T. rex is the epitome of evolution for meat-eating animals. It had the strongest bite force, the largest orbits for any vertebrate and a brain that was remarkably advanced for dinosaurs.'
