In anticipation of the T-Rex Roundup, the Museum is pleased to introduce STAN, a spectacular full-size cast of a Tyrannosaurus rex skull and the latest addition to the Museum’s Frithiof Fossil Collection displays, on loan from George Blasing of San Antonio. Unearthed in Harding County, South Dakota in 1987 by amateur paleontologist Stan Sacrison after 65 million years, it took more than 30,000 hours of preparation to ready the specimen for display.

STAN, the largest and most complete (65% real bone) T. rex available to science, headlined the T. rex World Exposition. STAN is currently on display in Hill City, SD and awaiting his new home in the Black Hills Museum of Natural History. The Brazos Valley Museum of Natural History is pleased to offer this cast replica of Stan’s skull for viewing.
