Ask any child what their favorite dinosaur is, and odds are that it will be the Tyrannosaurus Rex, possibly the most popular dinosaur species of all time. The Tyrannosaur was one of the largest land carnivores in Earth's history, weighing around 10 tons and over 40 feet in length. Tyrannosaurs roamed what is now North America, and much has been studied, conjectured, and discovered about this storied beast. The current prevailing scientific theories indicate that Tyrannosaurs had a combination of feathers, scales, and skin like their modern relatives, birds. There are even some data that suggest the type of melanin that existed in some parts of the facial structure, possibly indicating the coloration around the eye ridges. For my version, I started with the head and overall proportions from the Jurassic Park animatronic model by Stan Winston Studios and added my interpretation based on the latest theories. My thanks again to the Ceramic Art Studio and Shop.
Did T-Rex have feathers? Almost certainly according to recent fossil evidence.
Would like to have thinned the feet more, but pottery clay has its limitations.
