asked where he could view the Carnegie _T. rex_ mount online. Why, at the
Carnegie Museum of Natural History web site, of course! You can see a
couple of pictures at <www.acnatsci.org/dinosaurs/> if you click on
"Discovering Dinosaurs" and "QuickTime VR of Dinosaur Hall."
Another nice mount of the same _T. rex_ cast is on view at U.C. Berkeley's
Museum of Paleontology at <www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/trex/specialtrex2.html>.
You can appreciate the work that goes into such a mount by clicking on
"Building T. rex" at the same site.
For another perspective, you could probably search on "Denver Museum of
Natural History" to see the high-kicking _T. rex_ preferred by Robert
For Jack Horner's controversial perspective on the case for a (primarily)
scavenging Tyrannosaurus rex_, you have two good sources. One is the
Museum of the Rockies home page at <www.montana.edu:80/wwwmor>, which
discusses an MOR exhibit called "T. rex on trial." You can also read a
lively discussion between Mr. Horner and Nathan Myhrvold at <www.mungo
park.com/> under "chat transcripts: big brain night." Myhrvold discusses
his controversial "supersonic sauropods" theory, too.
There are certainly many other internet sources on _T. rex_, but these
sites should keep you busy for the moment.
