Tyrannosaurus rex refurbishment. Tyrannosaurus rex (T-rex) skeleton inside the workshop of Phil Fraley Productions. The skeleton is being refurbished and rebuilt in a posture that scientists believe is more life-like. The T-rex skeleton is supported by a metal armature frame. The skeleton was originally exhibited at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History. It was first mounted over 100 years ago in a posture that is now thought to be incorrect. The newly refurbished T-rex will be redisplayed at the museum posed as if fighting over a fresh kill. T-rex was one of the largest carnivorous dinosaurs, measuring 5 metres tall and weighing 7 tonnes. Photographed in 2007.
