This is the story of specimen TE-036, or “Roosevelt” as he is known.
Specimen TE-036, nicknamed “Roosevelt” is a premium quality composited example of the “Tyrant Lizard King,” Tyrannosaurus rex. It is named for President Franklin D. Roosevelt, after two partial T. rex specimens were discovered south of Fort Peck Lake, a monumental hydroelectric dam project constructed by the Army Corp of Engineers under FDR’s New Deal in 1940.
“Roosevelt” takes his place alongside composite T. rex specimens including those exhibited at the American Museum of Natural History and the Natural History Museum in London, UK. “Roosevelt” is truly a beautiful and exciting display specimen, fully prepared and mounted for exhibition.

The skull of “Roosevelt” comes from a third partial specimen discovered in the Lance Creek Formation of Weston County, Wyoming. The site (BS1301), which was completed in 2013, produced the skull and a va- riety of postcranial elements including cervical ribs and vertebra and portions of the hind legs. The three partial skeletons came together in 2015 as “Roosevelt,” and are posed on a custom steel armature, in a classic Tyrannosaurid pose.
