Taken at the Field Museum in Chicago. This is the beaming visage of Sue, the best preserved T Rex on exhibit. Note that this is not actually Sue's head. The real head was compressed by the fossilization process. The real skull is, or was-- haven't been to the museum for a while--, on exhibit on the second floor.
