Feel the ground shake? The greatest predator that ever lived is heading straight for Auckland Museum.
From the 15th of April until the 4th of September you’ll be able to get up close to a massive 12 metre long and nearly four metre high, real T. rex skeleton.
Peter the T. rex is free to see and it’s the first time ever he’s been on display anywhere in the world.
A T. rex skeleton is an incredibly rare sight in New Zealand and one containing real bones is even rarer, as most of the examples in museums are replicas. But what makes this example ultra rare is its stunning black colour, caused by mineral deposits on the bones.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime chance to encounter nature’s most fearsome predator at Auckland Museum’s Te Ao Mārama South Atrium.
