Tyrannosaurus truly is the tyrant king of dinosaurs. This magnificent Late Cretaceous predator is arguably the most prominent ambassador for paleontology, and one of the most frequently sighted roadside dinosaurs. Ryan Haupt, one of the hosts of the often paleo-themed Science… Sort Of podcast, adds another sighting to the list, this time of a Tyrannosaurus busting out of a fiberglass shop near Hindsville, Arkansas. To me, it looks like the dinosaur is trying to do a Kool-Aid Man impression: Oh Yeah!
