He doesn't LOOK fragile

This guy's been dead for over 140 million years, and he still managed to menace over 5 million people last year. Or, rather, his bones did in the Fossil Hall at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. Right now? Zero. Well, maybe a few scientists in a storage unit. The Fossil Hall's closed for 5 years while the Smithsonian does a makeover. Considering this guy was reconstructed prior to 1920, he could probably use a bit of a tune-up.

This Allosaurus fragilis specimen was uncovered in 1883 in the Felch-Marsh Quarry in Colorado. If you're sitting there thinking, "He doesn't look so bad," remember that as an adult, his kind was 28 ft. tall on average and the base package includes 3-inch-long, serrated teeth.

The word "Allosaurus" printed in white ink above a green and white oncoming dinosaur skeleton graces the front of this black, 100% cotton shirt. Machine wash cold. Tumble dry low or lay flat to dry. Imported.
