📷 Trix vs Stan! Come and admire the two T. rexes currently exhibited @rbins. 🦖 🦖
In the first two pictures is the 3D-printed version of Trix, the specimen of our Dutch friends of Naturalis in Leiden. In the last two pics you see our cast of Stan.
Both of them:
- were top predators during the very last part of the Upper Cretaceous period, the last chapter in the book of dinosaurs (avian dinosaurs as current birds have written a nice sequel! 😊)
- were excavated in the Hell Creek Formation of North America: Trix near Jordan in Montana 📍, Stan near Buffalo in South Dakota 📍 (a 4 hour drive from each other).
- were prepared by the Black Hills Institute in Hill City, South Dakota
- are among the most complete 🧩 of some thirty T. rex specimens known today
- have healed bite marks and wounds 🩸 probably caused by other T. rexes
- had 50 to 60 teeth, some as big as bananas 🍌. They are robust and serrated allowing T. rex to bite through flesh and bone. The teeth were replaced throughout their lives.
- had well-developed senses: 👃 olfactory lobes almost as large as their brain, a highly developed inner ear 👂 that could perceive low frequency sounds, and small eyes 👁️ located towards the front of the skull (like we have) which demonstrates stereoscopic, 3D vision.
They also differ:
- Trix is seen as a female, Stan as a male, although palaeontologists are still debating…
- Trix is a bit longer and higher than Stan 📏: 12.5 m vs 11.7 m; 4 m vs 3.64 m
- Both were old when they died, but Trix is the oldest T. rex so far: more than 30 years of age
- Trix is estimated to be at least 67 million years old, Stan 66 million.
- Stan was named after its finder: amateur palaeontologist Stan Sacrison, who discovered the first of Stan's bone fragments. Trix is both an allusion to "T-rex" and to former Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands: so Trix is the Queen of the Cretaceous! 👑
- Stan has had more admirers so far as he is all over the world: it’s the most duplicated T. rex fossil.
- Trix is publicly available for research, Stan for the moment is not. The original specimen was auctioned and sold for 💲31.8 million dollars to an anonymous private buyer in 2020, making it the most expensive fossil ever sold. Its future as a study object and museum exhibit is uncertain at this moment.

Can we just stop and think about how perfect it is that T.rex got the name it did?
Like, paleontology was still a new field when it was discovered. There were probably like ten dinosaurs listed at the time, and they already gave T.rex the greatest dinosaur name ever. There were thousands of species waiting to be discovered that could’ve proved a better fit for the name.
Imagine if Herrerasaurus had been discovered first and they had decided to call it Tyrannosaurus rex because it was a big predator by their standards? It would’ve become a joke about how the great “tyrant lizard king” was actually a little runt compared to later theropod findings.
Or imagine if they gave T.rex a less impressive name, like some other dinosaurs. It could’ve been called Wyomingsaurus or kept the name Manospondylus gigas. What sort of name is “giant porous vertebrae”?
But thankfully it didn’t happen. The president of the American Natural History museum looked at this fossil that was just one of the first of an entire world of dinosaurs waiting to be discovered, and thought “You are the baddest dinosaur we’re ever going to find, so you’re getting the baddest name we can give.”
And it worked. It’s been like 119 years since T.rex was discovered and it’s still the most badass theropod we’ve ever found, with the strongest bite force of any land animal and so successful that wherever it appeared in the fossil record other predators disappeared. It was so badass that as juveniles they outcompeted small-to-medium adult predators.
The baddest dinosaur ever could’ve gotten a weaksauce name, or the baddest name ever could’ve gone to an undeserving dinosaur. But it didn’t, and now the greatest land predator to ever walk the earth has the equally greatest name Tyrannosaurus rex, the motherfucking Tyrant Lizard King.

Here are six more 2″x2″ paintings that I made for another ‘Microdose’ group show at Nucleus Portland (November 8th - December 1st 2020). I’m glad that they all found new homes after the show.
Prehistoric creatures featured: Tyrannosaurus Rex, Brachiosaurus, Dimetrodon, Ammonite, Elasmotherium, and Pteranodon!

Featuring: Stegosaurus, Troodon, Spinosaurus, Triceratops, Diplodocus, Tyrannosaurus, Oviraptor and Therizinosaurus.

Once again, apologies for lack of updates and general inactivity! It’s only just recently I’ve had time for personal work. This is one of ‘em!
Basically a tribute to my favorite dinosaur, and all it’s multiple interpretations, inspirations and creatures derived from it.

‘Setting Up Camp Under the Arch of a Fallen King’ - Here is something kind of inspired by the animated series, ‘Primal’.  The animation and characters in that show were awesome.
