Description

The above is a scalechart of FMNH PR2081, thus far the largest, most massively constructed and most complete T. rex known. In terms of skull size, there are other specimens similar to it, but none surpass it.

Here I scaled the skull based on the mounted version to the Premaxilla-Quadratojugal-lenght from Brochu, 2003. The maximum skull lenght ended up around 5cm longer than that.
The most impressive thing about it and probably a something it is still record holder in is the immense skull width, upwards of 80cm.

And NO, MOR 008 is not larger than sue, it was just incorrectly reconstructed, that's all.
