The Tyrannosaurus rex is one of the most famous prehistoric animals. This ferocious carnivore was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs. With its magnificent teeth in its massive jaw and its long, powerful tail, it’s no wonder how it was given a name that means “tyrant lizard king.” With this kit, you can build a 26-inch-long scale model of a T. rex skeleton and get exciting insights into this creature’s anatomy. The skeleton model is made of 20 plastic pieces that snap together easily and a plastic base on which you can display your skeleton. You will learn how the structure of the mega-skeleton works and what parts it consists of. The full-color, eight-panel manual has step-by-step illustrated instructions for assembling the skeleton model. Read the manual to learn about dinosaurs, their lives in prehistoric times, and the formation of fossils. Ages 6 & up.
