The tyrannosaurus rex is a three-part fossil that can be donated to the museum in all Animal Crossing series games and collected by Happy Home Handbook in Happy Home Designer. It is the highest-scoring fossil (when complete) in terms of HRA points. The T-Rex Skull is also the highest-selling fossil in all the games, as it is sold for 6,000 Bells.

Donation to the museum[]

In Animal Crossing[]

In Animal Crossing, once the Tyrannosaurus exhibit is complete, Blathers will give the player information about the creature through the following dialogue.

"Why, this means... Yes! Tyrannosaurus! It’s complete!!! Oh, such joy! Such unfettered delight! Truly... this is splendid. I am quite beside myself. I’m practically molting with all this excitement! Now then, where to begin? Tyrannosaurus... A magnificent beast... A highly evolved theropod, the ‘tyrant lizard’ was one of the largest carnivores of the late Cretaceous period. It had a large head, a short, muscular neck, a barrel-like body, and powerful hind legs with three-taloned feet. Its skull was enormous, and its vast jaws were filled with dagger-like teeth, the largest of which were 6 inches long! T-rex was 40 feet long from nose to tail. Resistance to its powerful attacks was an exercise in futility! Garrrr! Oh my! Oh, terribly sorry! I beg your pardon, eh wot? I seem to have been overcome by momentary savagery. Hoo!"

In Wild World[]

Upon completion of the tyrannosaurus exhibit at the museum in Wild World, Blathers will give the player some information about the creature.

"Why, this means... Yes! Tyrannosaurus! It’s complete!!! Such unfettered delight! Truly... this is splendid. I am quite beside myself. I’m practically molting with all this excitement! Its skull was enormous, and its vast jaws were filled with dagger-like teeth, the largest of which were 6 inches long! T-rex was 40 feet long from nose to tail. Resistance to its powerful attacks was an exercise in futility! Garrrr! Oh my! Oh, terribly sorry! I beg your pardon, eh wot?? I seem to have been overcome by momentary savagery. Hoo!!"

In City Folk[]

After donating all of the pieces of the tyrannosaurus to the museum in City Folk, Blathers will give the player information on the creature with the following dialogue.

"...Amazing! Stupendous! The T. rex has been completed! Hoo, the sheer stupefication of it all! T. rex is, of course, short for Tyrannosaurus Rex! It lived until the final days of the dinosaurs and was a fearsome predator, wot? Just imagine how it would rend and tear apart its prey with those huge jaws and sharp teeth! Blech! Vivid! It was also very heavy, so the theory goes that it wasn't particularly fast. ...So, if it attacked, you could escape from it pretty easily, I should think...HOO! I...beg your pardon! I was so enthralled, I...I spouted hot air like a boiling teapot, eh wot?"

In New Leaf[]

In New Leaf, a plaque by the display offers information about the fossil instead of Blathers.

"The famous tyrannosaur was one of the largest and strongest carnivores of its day. Though it could reach more than 30 feet in length, it was capable of speeds near 20 mph. Its hind claws were powerful, as were its razor-sharp teeth. This made the T. rex fearsome indeed."

In New Horizons[]

In New Horizons, upon donation or selecting "Tell me more about this!", Blathers will say:

"I'd say that T. rex is the 800-pound gorilla of the dinosaur world, but it likely weighed well over nine tons. This fearsome chap is practically synonymous with the word "dinosaur," and for good reason! At up to 42 feet long with banana-sized teeth, it was one of the largest carnivores ever to walk the earth. It's unclear how fast T. Rex was since estimates vary wildly... I am just relieved I will never have to escape one. Hoo."

The T. rex is displayed in the northeast corner of the second fossil room, posed as though it is fighting the triceratops.

Sue, one of the most well-known T. rex specimens

Main article: Tyrannosaurus rex on Wikipedia

Probably the most well-known dinosaur, Tyrannosaurus rex was a carnivorous theropod that lived during the late Cretaceous period, about 68-66 million years ago. It went extinct during the Cretaceous-Paleogene extinction event. Its range was widespread, stretching from Canada down into the southwestern United States. It grew to lengths of over 40 ft. (12.3 m), up to 12 ft. (3.66 m) tall at the hips, and may have weighed between 9.3-15.4 short tons (8.4-14 metric tons). It was bipedal and had extremely short front limbs, a massive head, and powerful back legs. It also had long, pointed teeth, the longest of which found is 12 inches long—the longest of any carnivorous dinosaur.
