More than 4,200 people streamed through Halifax's Museum of Natural History to have a gander at one very big girl this past weekend.


Halifax is the first Canadian city to play host to Sue, the world's largest and best-preserved Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton. Measuring 42 feet long and 12 feet high at the hips, the massive cast of the original skeleton was assembled by workers over four days.


The exhibit runs until May 8.


Sue was discovered in 1990 by paleontologist Sue Hendrickson during an expedition in western South Dakota. The original skeleton was auctioned for more than $8 million and is now on permanent display at Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History.
