(for FMNH PR2081, a.k.a. "Sue") (a.k.a. Tyrannosaurus, a.k.a. T-Rex) (estimated live weight)
The notable Tyrannosaurus specimen housed at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, Illinois, "Sue," is estimated to have weighed about 0.00000640 megatonnes while alive. A renowned predator in popular culture, the teeth of tyrannosaurus rex were up to 33.02 cm (13 in) long.
