Tristan - Berlin bares teeth (T-Rex in Berlin)

Spectacular dinosaur find! TRISTAN OTTO, one of the world’s best preserved specimens of Tyrannosaurus rex, is moving to Berlin in December 2015 when the 12 metre long original skeleton will make its public début at Berlin’s Natural History Museum. With this exhibit, Berlin’s Natural History is setting a new milestone as home to the only original T.rex skeleton in all of Europe.

TRISTAN makes its début in December 2015 at Berlin’s Natural History Museum and is expected to remain on display for at least three years. During the exhibition, the scientists want to gain more insight about the predators. What diseases did TRISTAN have and what does that say about today’s medical conditions? High-resolution CT scans of the animal’s skull will help deliver answers.
