My name is Jane. I'm a juvenile T-Rex found by team members from the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, IL. My original dig site was at Hell Creek in Montana. I'd like to return to my home state of Montana to see it one more time. Please take me closer to my home. Thanks. -Jane
Edit 5/27/15 - Yay, I made it to Montana. Now, let's go to southeastern Montana where my fossils came from.
