The famous species Tyrannosaurus rex (‘rex’ meaning ‘king’ in Latin), commonly abbreviated to T. rex, is a fixture in popular culture around the world. It lived throughout what is now western North America, with a much wider range than other tyrannosaurids. Fossils of T. rex are found in a variety of rock formations dating to the last three million years of the Cretaceous Period, approximately 68 to 65 million years ago; it was among the last non-avian dinosaurs to exist prior to the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event.

Nice drawing overall! The only issues I have are in the description mainly:

Length: there isnt any evidence of them being 13 meters long, the longest estimate was 12.8 and even that is a little high. The most commonly accepted at the moment is 12 meters.
Height: at which point? Hips or head?
Weight: the most up to date estimates give it 6-9 tons, not 4-6. Your's one is more closer to Tarbosaurus, which was significantly lighter than Tyrannosaurus.

Other than that, it's all good! :)

Thought mor 008 or Celeste probably or for that matter UCM137538 ( last one was only a toe bone)   Mr Jack Horner claims he got celeste wich should be bigger than Sue but he is yet to provide any data?

There's too little to say about these specimens sizes. And to be honest, unless someone else decides to really investigate them in more detail (especially Celeste), then we may not hear anythign about them for a while. Horner is no longer working at MOR, and I think he isnt in the field no more. Last I heard at least.

Ich bin der Meinung das der wie ein Kaiserpinguin aufstehen konnte,wen der gestürzt wäre.Aufgrund seines massiven Schädels,und seiner starken Nackenmuskeln.
Ps,hast du den Abstand des Knorpels mitgerechnet (13 m)
