Re: Dinosaur Protein

They mention medullary tissue being found confirming this specimen
female, but is there enough of the specimen to deternine whether she
was robust or gracile? <<<

As Chris Brochu has pointed out, we don't have enough specimens period to establish whether there are truly robust and gracile forms. The available sample of T. rex specimens is niether large enough nor well enough controlled (for temporal, geographic, and ontogenetic variation) to establish normality of the sample.
