The Chicago Field Museum's resident Tyrannosaurus rex, Sue, is getting a cleaning just in time for the holidays.
The 67-million-year-old dinosaur's second cleaning of the year will start Tuesday morning. Geologist Bill Simpson will use a vacuum cleaner to blow dust off of Sue before using a feather duster on all 200 of her bones. Simpson will use a lift to maneuver around the fossil.
The cleaning will take over an hour and Simpson is the only person allowed to clean the fossil.
