I read that the T-Rex specimen on display next to the Triceratops was complete
except for the skull, so they "topped it off" with a casting of the skull
from the one at the American Museum of Natural History...
The second T-rex discovered in Alberta - named "Black Beauty - is currently
on display in the travelling exhibit "The Greatest Show Unearthed".
