Of course, I’m talking about the Field Museum of Natural History’s pride and joy, Sue. She’s one of the largest and most complete Tyrannosaurus Rex fossils ever discovered. And Sue Hendrickson is the woman who discovered her.
Sue embraced passion fire before it was cool. Instead of completing high school, she moved to Florida and became a professional diver. Hendrickson’s diving ability allowed her the opportunity to explore old shipwrecks, and search them for artifacts.
Hendrickson discovered some small pieces of bone as she walked along the cliff. Looking up, she noticed larger bones coming out of the side. The team began their work of uncovering the largest T-Rex fossil ever discovered!
