What’s it like to be a fossil? The ‘Nation’s T.rex’ weighed in on Twitter

On Thursday, Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History joined PBS NewsHour on Twitter for a discussion on extinction, in connection with our so-called “Extinction Week.” And guess who took over the museum’s Twitter feed? Washington, D.C.’s colossal new resident, the “Nation’s T.rex.”

The T.Rex isn’t scheduled to go on proper display until 2019, but his bones won’t just be sitting in boxes for the next five years.

If you missed the Twitter chat, you can catch up on the king of dinosaurs’ insights below.
