The original mount of Tyrannosaurus depicted the animal in an upright posture, with its skull more than 20 feet above the ground and its tail dragging along on the ground behind it. But more recent research documents that this animal moved with its backbone held horizontally. This negative has been corrected to show two toes, not three.
