The name given to the largest, most complete, and most well preserved dinosaur fossil is Sue. Sue is a Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton with 90 percent of its bulk intact. Sue was named after Sue Hendrickson, the woman who discovered the fossil on a commercial fossil hunting expedition in South Dakota.

Sue the dinosaur finally found its final resting place in the Field Museum in 1997 after 7 years of struggle over where she would end up. Sue sold for 7.6 million dollars, the largest amount of money ever spent on a dinosaur fossil. Sue is also still the most intact dinosaur fossil ever discovered and put on display in a museum. Field Museum is in Chicago Illinois and Sue is definitely something every dinosaur lover would want to see in their lifetime.
