Re: Rigby's Tyrannosaur
Having seen the specimen it is not that large. It is about the same size as Sue.

I just watched an episode of Plaeoworld on the Science Channel where it was
stated that Rigby's giant Tyrannosaurus rex tops out at 65 feet long. I was
incredulous. Is this an estimate, based on the legnth of the pelvis? Or is it
an accurate measurement of the skeleton as a whole? Has Rigby published his
findings? I assume so, as this ended up on TV and all. Or is this still yet
another "wait-for-the-paper" moment?
