It’s safe to say the Tyrannosaurus Rex is one of the most metal dinosaurs and thanks to a new exhibit, the T-Rex just got even more metal. New York City’s Museum of Natural History has unveiled “the most scientifically accurate representation of T. rex to date” and it just so happens, they were rockin’ a mullet the whole time. Curator Mark Norell claims that a full grown T-Rex had  “a bit of a toupee,” which basically looks like a mullet.

Not only that, paleontologists now believe “The Ultimate Predator” was packing a beer gut from constantly over eating. To top it off, the T-Rex had teeth the size of a banana and could bite with 7800 pounds of force. The King of the Dinosaurs remains the most metal of the Mesozoic bunch.
