The life-size copper Tyrannosaurus rex statue that stands guard outside the University of Wyoming Geological Museum is celebrating its 50th birthday today. The museum will host two cake parties—one today over lunch, and again from noon until 2 pm Saturday. Wyoming Public Radio’s Anna Rader and Micah Schweizer visited the T. rex and heard from passers-by and well-wishers.
