Proof unearthed of Aussie T-Rex

A dinosaur fossil discovered down under has revealed that Tyrannosaurus rex had long-lost Aussie relatives.

The hip bone found in Victoria is the first proof of tyrannosaurs living in the southern hemisphere.

Dr Roger Benson, from Cambridge University, who identified the fossil, said: “This is an exciting discovery because tyrannosaur fossils had only ever been found in the northern hemisphere before and some scientists thought tyrannosaurs never made it down south.”
