Meet Victoria, one of the most complete T. rex fossils in the world

(I'm posting these stories because the specimen has been used in scientific research as noted in the article, but I'm not sure who owns the fossil. Although it may be privately owned, I assume it is not being offered for commercial sale, so mention on the DML should be OK (I hope). Some people may have issues if it's privately owned (and not formally curated where anybody can request to study it), but Tristan is also privately owned and was covered on the DML... Note that the Faith, South Dakota area, is where Sue was discovered as well.)
