SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Are you a Sue, then lucky you! The San Diego Natural History Museum is inviting anyone named Sue (or a variation of the name) to meet Sue the T. rex and receive free admission into Animals: Machines in Motion through Sunday, December 11.
So grab a Sue and come meet the 68 million year old Sue, the life-sized replica of Sue, the largest and most complete T. rex that's ever been discovered. She's over 13 feet fall, 42 feet long, and bares an impressive grin with 58 dagger-like teeth.
The original Sue is on permanent display at The Field Museum in Chicago. She got her nickname from the paleontologist Sue Hendrickson who discovered her on a commercial fossil hunting trip during the summer of 1990.
Come see Sue while you can -- This limited engagement exhibition is here only through January 2. Don't forget to take a "Sue Selfie" and use the hashtag #SueMeetSue!
If your name’s Sue, have we got the deal for you. We're inviting all Sues to enjoy FREE admission to Animals: Machines in Motion 12/5-12/11. pic.twitter.com/XsCMYOhdHX— theNAT (@SDNHM) November 28, 2016
