  Tyrannosaurus rex BUCKY Sub-adult Skeleton - Fossil Replica  (BHI #126845)
Tyrannosaurus rex BUCKY Sub-adult Skeleton - Fossil Replica 
Detailed Images

"BUCKY" is a sub-adult T. rex of the robust (female) morphotype. The original bone quality and preservation is excellent, allowing us to create very high quality casts. BUCKY's youth makes the skeleton cast an ideal candidate for smaller venues or as a part of a family group.

The skeleton was discovered in 1998 by its namesake, Bucky Derflinger, a rodeo cowboy and rancher, who was himself a sub-adult at the time of discovery. The Black Hills Institute did the excavation in 2001 and 2002. Enormous resources were required, as the skeleton was scattered over an approximately 2000 square meter area, buried under as much as 10 meters of overburden! BUCKY was prepared, molded, and mounted by BHI for The Children's Museum of Indianapolis, where it went on exhibit June, 2004 (specimen # TCM 2001.90.1).

BUCKY has a nearly complete vertebral column to the end of the pelvis, the third most complete tail of any T. rex known and an excellent rib cage complete with gastralia basket (belly ribs). The addition of the gastralia basket enhances the visual perception of the dinosaur, as it better outlines the shape of the body. The skull is a scientific reconstruction which utilized modified casts of DUFFY (another sub-adult T. rex) and other T. rex specimens.

Because of its size, BUCKY produces a visually dynamic running pose, which is more difficult to achieve in larger specimens. Many other poses are available.
