Automatic translation thanks to:
Everyone likes Dinosaurs. Or at least I think so. Outside the Dinosaur ride at Disney's Animal Kingdom are numerous dinosaur statues. Most quickly walk on past without taking the time to read any of the information about them. For example, the first dinosaur you'll see while heading towards the ride building is a giant Tyrannosaurus Rex skeleton. But this is no generic skeleton. This is an exact replica of "Sue", the largest T. Rex fossil ever discovered.

Sue was uncovered in 1990 at the Cheyenne River Sioux Indian Reservation, near Faith, SD. When Pete Larson and his team at the Black Hills Institute began extracting the fossil, they nicknamed it "Sue", after its discoverer. In 1997, Sue became the center of a media circus which called the rightful ownership of the specimen into question. Eventually Sue was put up for auction at Sotheby's and sold for $8.36 million. The winners were the Chicago Field Museum, Disney, and McDonald's and the price marked Sue as the most expensive dinosaur ever.

There is a plaque in front of Sue giving more information about the discovery. You will need to read this plaque to find the answers for log password. The password is a 5-digit number, comprised of a 2-digit percentage that the fossil is complete, a 1-digit weight in tons of Sue, and a 2-digit length of Sue in feet.

I've had an account on OpenCaching for a while now, but this is my first logged find here. It was pretty easy, but I was glad I could grab some caches at Animal Kingdom. TFTC

I found Sue with my family in tow on Christmas Day 2014.  I have seen this dinosaur on other trips to Animal Kingdom but did not realize that it was from real fossils.  Thank you for educating me and make me stop, read, and enjoy this amazing dinosaur, Sue.

Nice virtual while visiting on vacation.  I think we have the copy of the same at the entrance to Denver Museum of Nature and Science.  Photo not the greatest, but had to snap it quick between the crowd.
