LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Paleontologists at the Biodiversity Institute at the University of Kansas are getting a chance to study the bones of a Tyrannosaurus Rex.

6News Lawrence reports (http://bit.ly/18pEQzG ) the dinosaur’s fossils came from a collections museum in St. Louis, which decided it could not keep the collection.

State paleontologist David Burnham says the fossil’s age isn’t clear but it’s not believed to be full grown. To determine the age, Kansas paleontologists will search for more remains where the fossil was found in Jordan, Mont.

Burnham says the bones also will be an interesting display for the University of Kansas’ Natural History museum.

The Tyrannosaurus rex bones at the museum will be the first collection of real T. rex ever displayed in Kansas.
