The T-Rex has been one of the most popular dinosaurs since its discovery in 1874. Popular culture has always been focused on the speed and prowess of these dinosaurs as predators and even Jurassic Park the movie gave them some attention alongside the now-famous Velociraptor. Tyrannosaurus Rex could grow to more than 40 ft long and 13 ft tall and had an impressively terrifying mouth full of huge teeth. The sheer size of these monstrous dinosaurs has always been a key feature of the fascination with their existence. This dinosaur has also more recently become associated with comics making fun of their short front legs compared to their powerful and long hind legs. The T-Rex has staying power in the popular imagination and if collectors have seen one of the many full skeletons that are in museums in the US, they will know why.
