Digital Archives Drumheller's colossal dinosaur May 12, 2000 | 6:20A seven-storey <em>Tyrannosaurus rex</em> that you can climb inside may attract visitors, but it's certainly no replica of the dinosaur that roamed Drumheller, Alta. some 65 million years ago. "It's way bigger than any <em>T. Rex</em> ever was," says Bruce Naylot of the Royal Tyrrell Museum, which houses a world famous dinosaur collection. That's besides the point, notes Corey Campbell, the man in charge of the <em>T. Rex</em> building project. "It's purely for marketing purposes, and to display what a <em>T. Rex</em> really looks like from a far distance," he says. As this 2000 CBC-TV clip shows, the massive monument is bound to attract more attention to the self-proclaimed dinosaur capital of Canada.
