Sue the dinosaurWho Is Sue?

Mary Hurt

Come to Chicago to meet Sue. She is 42 feet (12.8 meters) long and is 13 feet (4 meters) tall at her hips. She has 58 teeth. Her skull is 5 feet (1.5 meters) long, but her brain cavity would barely hold a quart (1.1 liters) of liquid. Sue is the largest, most complete, and best preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex on display anywhere in the world. When she was alive, her home was near Faith, South Dakota, USA.

Her home is now the Field Museum of Natural History, Chicago, Illinois, USA. Visit Sue at the museum's web site, or better yet visit Sue when you come to Chicago, Illinois, USA to attend LLLI's 17th Breastfeeding Conference: A Kaleidoscope of Families, Friends and Cultures, July 7 - 10, 2001 at the Chicago Hilton and Towers.
