No, it’s not a Tyrannosaurus rex — it’s actually an Acrocanthosaurus, and a life-size replica can be found casually greeting visitors as they enter the Omni Theater on the north end of the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History. It’s one of several dinosaurs that can be seen throughout the museum, along with the bones of Paluxysaurus jonesi, the state dinosaur of Texas.
