Trix, the world’s best preserved Tyrannosaurus

Traductor de Google:

In 2013 a team of Dutch palaeontologists found the skeleton of a Tyrannosaurus rex in Montana which was very complete and in excellent condition. Over half of the bones have been conserved and the skeleton is one of the largest ever found.

Although the study of the skeleton shows that Trix led a life fraught with infections, fractures and other wounds, her bones have been conserved remarkably well, without becoming deformed.

Trix is believed to have been a female and appears to be the specimen which lived the longest life of all those discovered to date.

Et presentem la Trix, el Tyrannosaurus rex que un equip holandès va trobar a Montana. Es tracta d'un esquelet molt complet i ben conservat.
L'esquelet fossilitzat de la Trix és excepcionalment complet; se n'han conservat més de la meitat dels ossos, cosa que el converteix en un dels tres esquelets més complets que s'han descobert mai. I encara resulta més extraordinari que els ossos no s'hagin deformat.
Es tracta d'un exemplar adult, possiblement femella i un dels més grossos que s'han trobat mai.
La Trix va tenir una vida plena d'incidents. Molts dels seus ossos presenten senyals d'infeccions, fractures i altres tipus de lesions.
