An authentic T-rex skull filled with plaster in Ulster Belfast museum. Tyrannosaurus rex was one of the largest land carnivores of all time. The calculations suggested that adult T. rex could have generated from 35000 to 57000 newtons of force in the back teeth, or the equivalent of 3 times the force estimated for a great white shark, 15 times the force of an African lion, 3 and a half times the force of an Australian saltwater crocodile. Since it was first described in 1905, T-rex has become the most widely recognized dinosaur species in popular culture. It is the only dinosaur that is commonly known to the general public

Dinosaurs were never one of my favourite subjects even as a kid never liked all those films with those prehistoric beasts. Nevertheless Miguel looking at this from a purely photographic perspective it is a very fine shot. Great colours,lighting and sharpness. Nice work.

Beautiful capture of the skull in a cinematic angle. Lively colours and great clarity in artificial light.
I find you are alone in this room with these pre-historic....

nice the view as the presentation of the authentic T-rex skull with your description to be very notable.
The huge tooth is the main characteristc of the pro-historic 'monster'.

i had to smile at the title, as tyrex is for me a brandname of a plastic product. i remember smiling at the trade name as it had also reminded me of t-rex... i have always liked how the skulls of vertebrates (humans included) seem like smiling. maybe happiness comes after death :)) good use of flash (a bit much but still ok) and excellent crispness.

I'm sure glad those teeth are now memory of the past. I can just imagine the terror and horror if they are still alive today. Nice capture of those fossils with good details. Well done, tfs.

I am more impressed with the notes as compared to the image shared of the great Dino. 35000 to 57000 newtons of force in the back teeth, and given the chance I would focus more on the lower part of the jaw, showing more of the teeth then the skull.
Now this reportage has turned into a documentary, with lot more to see in and around the museum.

Managed a nice indoor's shot in the museum, Miguel. Skulls of prehistoric animal are everywhere in the room.
Nice close-up on an impressive one.
Details collected in fine texture.

I believe the crocodiles and alligators are a close relative of dinosaurs that were able to adapt to monumental climate changes in the distant past. Good tight framing here and an image with bite! The warm colors contrast well against the cooler, blue grey tones. Good sharpness too. Tfs!

What a cool monster this is, and your shot gives great emphasis to the teeth of this beast. I never this there was one of these on display anywhere in Ireland, so thank you for giving me another stop point on my next trip to Belfast!
All the best

a very interesting picture, you've placed the T-rex skull very well in the frame offering us a fascinating close look. I don't understand why an authentic T-rex skull had to be filled with plaster. Maybe it was a measure taken many decades ago in order to keep its pieces together... A very clear picture with additional background interest. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great evening,

Fine up close and head accentuated Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil, especially the large toothy grin.
Was this guy found in the Belfast area?
In Los Angeles we have the La Brea Tar Pits which revealed numerous fossils imbedded in ancient oil, including T Rex's and even Mastodons. They are exhibited nicely at LA's Museum of Natural History.

Well, all I can say is that I am glad I do not have to encounter this beast in person. It appears as though you used flash, but your shutter speed was 1/25. Was that a floodlight behind you that cast the sharper shadow?

Interesantan tekst o dinosaurusima, sa datim podacima ...
Dobar rad, lepo pokazana glava Tyrex.
Ostali su skeleti i secanje na dinosauruse.
Prijatno vece i sve najbolje.
An interesting article about dinosaurs, with the given data ...
Good work, nice head Tyrex shown.
Others are skeletons of dinosaurs and memory.
Good evening and all the best.

nice view of this famous skull. I liked the view of the big teeth. nice light and details. in my region there are few fossils because this area was a big desert during many time.
NorthernLight (1163) 2013-10-13 13:34
a beautiful image of an ugly animal. Fortunately these giants walk no longer on earth.
A thrilling, clear picture with great colors. Very well captured!
With kind regards from Sweden
