Library Finds! (YL Edition – Celebrate Paleontology!)

On August 12, 1990, American paleontologist Susan “Sue” Hendrickson discovered the remains of a Tyrannosaurus rex in South Dakota. It’s the largest specimen of a T. rex found and one of the most complete skeletons. This skeleton is now known as “Sue” in honor of her discovery. In October 1997, Chicago’s Field Museum purchased Sue at public auction for $8.36 million. To celebrate all this here are a few paleontology titles we have in the library:
