RE: model of T. rex brain



Try The Dinosaur Society @ 1.800.Dino Don. There catalogue lists a T.rex 
brain cast. It is the old catalogue, but they may still carry it. I believe 
"The Complete T.rex" by Horner and Lessom had some info on the brain. I 
don't remember if the Dinosauria had any mention.

Dear dino-philes,

I can't think of a better audience for this question, since we have in our
community artists, librarians, students and scientists who love dinosaurs.
 When I went to the Dino to DNA show at the Field Museum in Chicago, they 
had
this wonderful model of a T. rex brain in their display.  I have sent them a
message inquiring about how to get a copy and received no answer, so I am 
now
going to this list.

I really would like a T.rex brain model for my classroom.  Does anyone have
any information about where such a model might be purchased?  How about a
paper that would describe the shape and size of this brain..or any other 
dino
brain?  I bet there is some cool 3-D computer imaging on the topic.

Now if such a model does not exist, I would bet there is a market for such a
piece.

Hoping to get lots of information!! :-)
