There's at least one dinosaur that's ready with some warm clothes for the next ice age — with help from recycled PET bottles.
London's Natural History Museum has unveiled its 2023 Christmas sweater (or jumper, if you're in the U.K.) for its animatronic Tyrannosaurus rex. Made with 60 percent cotton and 40 percent recycled PET, the sweater is 10 feet wide to fit around the model, weighs nearly 5 pounds and is 12.5 times larger than a typical sweater.
The museum has outfitted the T. rex with a Christmas sweater since 2021, but this year's version is the first with a sustainability angle, the museum told the BBC.
The museum shop sells human-sized versions with the same pattern featuring dinosaur skeletons. The design probably isn't bad enough to be considered worthy of an office "ugly Christmas sweater" award, but I certainly wouldn't volunteer to tell a T. rex that he lost a contest.
