The T. rex that got away: Smithsonian’s quest for Sue ends with different dinosaur. Now, nearly 17 years later — a blip compared with the 65-million-plus years since dinosaurs went extinct but an eternity in modern museum development — Washington is finally getting its king lizard tyrant: a smaller T. rex that will come to the Mall on a 50-year loan from the Army Corps of Engineers, which owns it, and the state of Montana, where it has been since the late Cretaceous period.

Instead of being inconvenienced, I felt blessed to watch Mother Nature at her best.” - Photographer Barbara von Hoffmann
