The “Sue” T. rex fossil specimen was discovered on the 12th of August 1990, by Sue Hendrickson. Extensive excavation and careful preparation resulted in a substantial proportion of the skeleton being saved. The specimen has the formal name FMNH PR 2081. It is one of the most complete and extensively researched of all the large tyrannosaur specimens known. This Tyrannosaurus rex is on permanent display at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago (Illinois).

The design team at Eofauna based their figure on a reconstruction of the Field Museum fossils.  They started with the dinosaur skeleton, added the musculature and finally the surface features such as scales, claws and teeth.
