Photograph of a 66 Million Year old Lady from Leicester
I photographed a 66,000,011 year old lady the other day in Leicester University. Jane was pictured with Rod and John from Vertigo Creative who made her look her best with some creative lighting and a dynamic pose.
By the way, Jane is a Tyrannosaurus rex, found at Hell Creek, amid the arid badlands of Montana. She is a sub-adult, estimated to be around 11 years oldat the time of her death. Vital statistics, 7′ 6″ tall and 21 feet long – around half the size of a fully grown dinosaur.
Weight 110 stone – but would have become 5 tonnes if she had reached adulthood.
Dinosaurs are typically named after the archiologist who finds them – hence the name ‘Jane’.
Her lower jaw features a full set of razor-sharp teeth, ideal for tearing into flesh. I wonder if she was smiling for me? 🙂
