Have you ever dreamed about what it would be like to excavate the world’s largest T. rex skeleton? Or wondered about the differences between male and female tyrannosaurs? Are you curious about how artists come up with the depictions of dinosaurs we see in books or on television?

Join paleontologist Dr. Walter Scott Persons IV for a Zoom presentation about “Scotty,” the biggest and longest-lived tyrannosaurus skeleton ever discovered, who is now on display at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.

Dr. Persons was the lead paleontologist on an in-depth scientific inquiry into this unique fossil, and he has written a book about it, aimed at readers aged 8 to 12. Mega Rex: A Tyrannosaurus named Scotty (Harbour Publishing, $13.95) is available now at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum Gift Shop and in stores and online from booksellers across Canada.

Tune into the presentation at 4:30 pm CST on Tuesday, November 24, as part of the programming for Dinovember at the Royal Saskatchewan Museum.
