THE MIND MUSEUM: Walking on the Footsteps of Giants

For sustaining our lives, we all depend upon one Earth, one biosphere. We breathe the same air. We all inhabit one planet.

Planet Earth is 4.6-billion-year-old.  Many years ago the earth was ruled by dinosaurs. Rarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! Meet Stan the t-rex at Mind museum! Stan‘s feet are very bird-like in appearance.

In fact, scientists have noted the many similarities between living birds and the meat-eating dinosaurs, known as theropods, like the t. rex, suggesting that birds are the living descendants of dinosaurs! 

Stan the T. rex. is a Tyrannosaurus rex (T. rex) which means “tyrant lizard king.” Stan lived in the Late Cretaceous Period, around 65-70 million years ago. The skeleton replica of Stan the Tyrannosaurus rex is on display at the Mind Museum. 

The teeth of Tyrannosaurus rex were specialised: they had tiny serrations to help them cut through flesh and are round in cross-section for breaking through bone. The crown of the tooth was covered with hard enamel. The long dentine roots were dissolved and re-used by new teeth as they grew. Eventually, the old tooth, worn from use and weakened at the root, would break-off while feeding (called a shed tooth), making room for the new germ tooth to grow into position. Unlike mammals, dinosaurs grew new teeth throughout their lifetimes.

 

The almost perfect replica of STAN‘s magnificent skeleton, skull, teeth and claws at Mind Museum with cast made from real fossils.

T.rex had a deadly bite and was able to bite through even the leg bone of another T.rex.
